Helen Howes Sewing Machines
|Sewing machine parts, manuals, and spares for sale; free advice, and other interesting stuff...|
Not everything is online - I have a job to get it uploaded fast enough, but I do try to have only actually-available items on the site..
I've been having a Much Too Exciting Time (Click Here for details), and I'm mostly unable to work for a few weeks (writing in September 2013)
(Update, now working part-time again.. Yippee!)
So I've been playing with the Boxes of Sewing Machine Stuff again..
Updated most recently:-
Needleclamps (Lots of pictures)
My Blog, on Sorting Stuff
Needles (Lots of old interesting packets)
Bobbins and Shuttles
What Is It?
Manuals of all kinds
Locks and Keys
Catches and Latches
and I'm working my way down the lists.. I'm also scanning and remaking manuals of all kinds for reproducing, notably for Willcox and Gibbs chainstitcher, and the older type Jones CS. So, not totally idle..
I keep a Wants list - if you can't find what you want please ask...
I now take credit/debit card payments - please see the Ordering page for details.
PLEASE NOTE - the GB Post Office has put prices up substantially, particularly for Packets (anything over an inch thick when wrapped is a Packet), so postage rates will be higher.. However, if you add items and have them posted together, the weight bands are higher, so there is a saving..
I'm also getting very good at packing Thinner, but there is a limit..
Now gathering email addresses for a Newsletter - just an odd email when I do major additions or rejigs of pages.. And the newsletter people get discounts or special offers
Email me on firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the list. No selling-on or spam, I promise..
