The Millennium Special Calendar
12 of the greatest sewing machines and stories (only six show here)

The picture quality of the actual prints are superb high quality frameable prints.

To mark the Millennium, which now seems like an age ago, I produced a one-off Millennium Calendar. The response was electric and they sold to collectors and enthusiasts all over the world.

The calendar has 12 fabulous early sewing machines which include the most beautiful machine in the world, the Agenoria, the prettiest toy the Muller 20, the amazing and unique Cookson. A machine few have ever seen the French Incomparable! A stunning Beckwith sewing machine. Possible the finest Arm & platform in existence. A beautiful 1870 Weir/Raymond. A rare Bonita made by Moldacot in 1888. For toy enthusiasts a sweet Singer 20. Of course the pictures had to include a Grover & Baker from 1860. A German Original Express and finally the most popular Singer of all time the fabulous Singer 222K.

Each of these superb prints comes with a history of the machine and there is more... to finish of this timeless calendar there are 12 sewing stories all to do with sewing machines from chief's in the rain forest to First World War prisoners.

Although the calendar dates are now not relevant they only make a small part of this superb publication. All in all it is a timeless collectors item to enjoy and treasure for years to come. Each of the few remaining calendars has a unique number. Below are a few drastically reduced pictures of the calendar.
