Helen Howes Sewing Machines

Sewing machine parts, manuals, and spares for sale; free advice, and other interesting stuff...
We specialise in veteran and vintage domestic machines, but do have oddments for industrials and others. Not everything is online, we have a job to get it uploaded fast enough, but do try to have only actually-available items on the site..

New Stuff

Price reductions on the Drawers page - We have lots of them and they are taking up too much space!
How to Fettle a Treadle (a novel in four illustrated parts)
How to Convert a Back-clamp 66 to Side-Clamping (more of a short story...)
I've remade the Feet Pages, and have a new link page with images to help you ID your errant attachments.

This site is updated pretty much every day, and today is no exception

We keep a Wants list - if you can't find what you want please ask... By email, please
