i know it is short notice, but this is a busy time of the year for us. We are hosting a featherweight care and maintenance class at our shop on Nov. 9th. The class fee is $45.00 per person who attends. The class schedule is under our lectures & workshops page with a list of everything to bring to the class that you have. Class size is limited to 7 people and currently there are 5 openings, so sign up fast. We are going to try to hold at least one class each month during the winter as we know it is hard to find anyone who knows how to take care of your featherweight.  Payment date once accepted to the class will be no later than Nov. 2nd. If not paid by then you will be removed and the next in line will get a shot. Sorry, no refunds once signed up and paid.

OUR NEWEST FIND FOR DEB'S QUILT COLLECTION!!!  It is from 1935 with an ice cream border.

This is a 1935 Dresden Plate quilt with a distinctive, yellow pattern , 4 pointed design in the center of each Dresden Plate, which is the same yellow pattern as in the ice cream cone border. This exact pattern and date was shown in one of our antique reference books. Lots of 30's feed sack materials in this one.

 AND HERE IS MY MUSEUM

 

 

 

Finally, after 5 years in my tiny building we have added a small show room. Now people can actually see what I have for sale, what will be for sale when refinished, and some of what I have collected? No, there is not room for everything; the building is too small already, but it sure beats what I had so call, come by and take a look. Here's a few photos of what we have put in the building thus far "more to come". A lot more has been added since i opened the museum and more details about the machines. I now have machines prior to the Civil War.
