Antique Sewing Machines!

I've been collecting old and antique sewing machines.  I have 9 antique / older machines so far;  one still needs cleaning up so is not pictured here (yet). And there is always room for more!  These don't work, but make a great display.

These are a 1919 Singer Treadle machine and a 1930's (? - we aren't really sure) electric machine.  Terry made me the cabinets and cleaned and repaired the machines for me for Christmas several years ago.

I then got a 1900 Singer that is a treadle, but I only have the head.  Then, for Christmas 2007, Terry found this 1947 Domestic sewing machine, in the cabinet.

In 2011, we found the 1925 Singer at a swap meet in Bend, OR, so it followed me home.  We were there camping, so putting it in the trailer, with the cabinet, was fun!  Then, in 2012, I found the 1920 Singer in a 2nd hand store in Estacada, OR.  So, it too had to come home.

A camping / vintage trailer friend knew I collected sewing machines and gave me these two from their barn!  I'm not sure of the year, but I think they are 50's machines;  both are made in Japan which was common in the 1950's. And, as was common then, they are cool colors (not black).
