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 bought a big pile of soggy machines, lots of good parts for mid-Century heavies arriving in the boxes by the hour..

Updated most recently:-
Motor Belts - New stock here...
NEW PAGE Cases, Bases, Cabinets and Drawers
Tension Units (never so much by so few for so many.. been swearing at this one for at least four days)
High Shank Feet
Quilt Feet
Machines For Sale - lots of new stuff
Locks and Keys
Hand Cranks

I'm working my way through the Odd Feet pages, making new ones and splitting them up into manageable chinks, sooooon

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 helen@raindropkites.co.uk to be added to the list. No selling-on or spam, I promise..
