Here at Rowan Tree Studio we are big fans of antique and vintage sewing machines and we have a pretty big collection. Vintage machines come in all shapes and sizes from the older beautiful looking hand machines for display to solid work horses that can sew through sail cloth. If you prefer a machine that is easy to maintain, sews a beautiful stitch and is an attractive feature in any home or sewing studio, then maybe a vintage machine is for you.
The older hand crank machines from the pretty little Singer 99k to the larger 15k are great for children to learn on and for people that want to slow down a little with their crafting. Treadles in a table take up more room but combine practicality with looks and allow hands free sewing including freemotion embroidery.
Many of the vintage machines that we have are motorised which gives the best of both worlds. If you want to buy a vintage machine for yourself or a gift we have a small selection in our online shop and some in our Studio in Clovelly.
We are also able to service vintage machines and undertake restoration work on your old antique machine.
If you want to learn how to clean, restore and service your old machine you can come to one of our Restoration classes where you will clean and service your machine and sew something to take home. This course is a real favourite and we see old dusty machines leave the class glowing and sewing!
