Vintage Sewing Machine Repairs

I have 4 vintage sewing machines. One is my industrial Singer, another a heavy-duty Pfaff 130, then there is a mint condition Singer 401A and lastly a sweet turquoise Fleetwood 195 Deluxe. All in great working order thankfully!!!

Oil and cleaning is important. I do a thorough machine cleaning every 6 months or so. My Industrial machine is a work horse and I have not coddled it at all. It takes a lickin and keeps on tickin!!! Well so far……………………………

I found the Website S.O.S. Machine which is in Los Gatos, California. So close enough for me to take my vintage machines too if needed. He does sell some of these old beauties too. They are dedicated in saving vintage machines that are in need of some TLC.

Check them out!!!

Oh and I am going to sell the Singer 401A if anyone is interested!!! I am finding out what the worth is of it and the shipping costs at the moment!!!

I have been artistic in one way or another all my life. Growing up in a creative family fueled my desire towards being an artist. I moved to Santa Cruz, CA from Detroit, MI in 2009, I needed a creative outlet and started volunteering at a local Clay Studio where I created many hand built ceramic vessels and fun sculptures. From there, I stumbled into sewing and started a handbag line under the name Mackerilla Design. After many years of sewing my bag designs, (which I currently still sell sewing patterns of my designs on ETSY and through a few online retailers) I wanted to get back to being an artist and started painting in 2014. Since I am passionate about animals and volunteer for rescues, painting dogs and cats in acrylic paint on canvas would be my subjects of choice! But I do love to paint all other living creatures as well as a few humans here and there! My approach is to capture the animal’s essence through the look in their eyes. To show their vulnerability and love for their humans. I truly love painting and have so many ideas continuously swirling in my head! I feel I am still learning and growing. I am looking forward to my future to see my progression as being an artist. -Janice Serilla
