A few sewing machine sites that I enjoy 

  • Graham Forsdyke's Featherweight machines, if you want the perfect Featherweight check his site, he has the works and a great reputation. www.singer-featherweight.com  
  • Nicolas Buisson's Sewing Machine Site. Has some interesting history (in English and French) of several sewing machine companies and information about the early French machine inventor Thimmonier.

  • Linda has a good site to purchase  sewing machine manuals from, with over 500 different manuals available. Relics 
  • This excellent site that just keeps getting better and better. Love the machine dating. 
  • Little Miss Sew 'n' Sew https://www.littlemisssewnsew.co.uk/ Eastbourne's latest fabric store. Online too!

Isaac Singer The First Capitalist
 by Alex Askaroff
(No 1 New Release 2014)

Most of us know the name Singer but few are aware of his amazing life story, his rags to riches journey from a little runaway to one of the richest men of his age. The story of Isaac Merritt Singer will blow your mind, his wives and lovers his castles and palaces all built on the back of one of the greatest inventions of the 19th century. For the first time the most complete story of a forgotten giant is brought to you by Alex Askaroff.
