Life In The Fast Lane

In our aterlier, we use almost exclusively refurbished vintage sewing machines for our sewing; the old machines they sew much more precisely with fewer issues than the modern ones made from plastic. What is especially a pleasure is that the sheer bulk of these cast iron machines keeps the fabric exactly where it should be and that means less stress and strain for me, especially when I am doing some complicated sewing. Here are some of the machines that we use here…

Treadling sans shoes…life in the fast lane. 🙂

Early morning “view from here”. All good ideas start from that old clipboard! 🙂
