The Antique & Vintage Sewing Machine Virtual Museum

Here is the Antique & Vintage Sewing Machine Virtual Museum with a gallery of over 130 machines in order of country! I am ‘specially enthralled with the toy sewing machines & sock knitters. The toy Vulcan machines are totally cute in either vibrant robins egg blue or poppy red. I wish there machines for grown-ups like these! *sigh*
