I once wrote and still believe: "Machines cannot meditate for they lack breath. Machines cannot create; they can only replicate programmed patterns." We give the pieces we bring into our lives meaning and this is the reason why I enjoy my work of restoring old Singer sewing machines and cabinets. My unique breath gives new life to pieces that others have passed on.
My inspiration has been my grandmother's 1937 Singer 15-91 and its Queen Anne with walnut burl cabinet! The research I completed on this depression-era artifact told me more about my grandmother and my family than she ever told me. I deeply enjoy restoring these machines and their cabinets to service, even if that service is just to be something beautiful in your home.
Every piece has a story and these Singers will help…
