17 Sewing Machines

Now there is a title to fuel the imagination of any crafter! What could you do with 17 gorgeous vintage sewing machines? Why do I ask? Because Jenafer from Local Vanguard is parting with this amazing collection of gorgeous vintage sewing machines.

Bought upon the closure of the Old Rakaia Museum, the collection spans the decades from the late 1800s through to the 1970s. Some of the machines come with historical references, including a Singer that came on the first ship that harboured in Akaroa.

Let’s hope these machines go to a loving home – it’s a lovely historical record of domestic craft.
