Workshop Machines

These are the hard-working machines in my shop:

 

The heart of the business — my Baby Lock 10 Enterprise needle embroidery machine.  It is connected directly to my computer where all the designing and digitizing takes place.

 

For all the basic sewing, my Bernina does the heavy lifting!

 

My two White 534 sergers are real workhorses.  I have had them for more than 30 years and, being completely mechanical, have never needed any maintenance except oiling and changing the blades every couple of years!

 

And no shop is complete without a blindstitch hemmer.  Tacsew makes one of the most reliable hemmers available for drapery work.  I was lucky to find this one barely used on eBay.

And the latest addition to my arsenal — the Sailrite Ultrafeed Walking Foot LSZ-1.  Originally marketed for making sails/awnings and other boating supplies, it easily handles leather (my newest passion) and I’ll be making totes and other small leather goods.
