Welcome to my blog for Vicki's Vintage Stitches! I'm in the beginning stages of establishing a web presence for my new sewing business, and plan to use this blog to announce new items, give updates on where items are available for sale and just talk about what I'm working on -- I always love to talk about sewing.

As an intro, I've been sewing since I was a child, starting with doll clothes and moving up to making my own clothes through high school and college. In 2000 I bought my first vintage sewing machine, joined a group dedicated to using treadle and handcranked sewing machines and was launched on hobby of collecting sewing machines and quilting with them.

My plan for Vicki's Vintage Stitches is to make useful and beautiful quilted and sewn items for sale, using my vintage and antique sewing machines. I love to design and combine colors and fabrics, so every item will be a little different from every other.

My first "collection" is inspired by Tybee Island, Ga, and includes bright tropical colors and patterns and beach themes. Items for sale are displayed at Lighthouse Pizza, on Tybrisa Street, on Tybee Island. Stop by and check them out -- and try some pizza while you're there!

More later!

Hi Vicki. I have just restored a 127 vibrating shuttle treadle and am wondering how to free-motion with her since the dogs do not drop? Thanks for any help.
