Vintage Sewing Machines

When I was young, my mother sewed my sister and I cute little jumpers and dresses. I learned how to sew when I was a Girl Scout, and its such a shame that I've long since abandoned that hobby. Maybe I'll pick it up again when I'm a mother. For the past two years sewing machine sales have been on the rise due to a greater awareness of social environmental issues, the rise of fashion design oriented competitions on television, and a desire to "customize" one's own garments. The trend has been aptly defined as a modern take on the "make do and mend" attitude of former generations.
