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..

Updated most recently (February 2015 - I'm trying to do Everything...):-
I've been remaking the Feet Pages, and have a new link page with images to help you ID your errant attachments HERE

I keep a Wants list - if you can't find what you want please ask...

NEW PAGE - Willcox and Gibbs Chain-stitch Machine Information and Parts

I now take credit/debit card payments (no cheques, please, too 18th Century..) - 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..
