Suggest a VSM For Our Coloring Book and Win a Free Copy

We're publishing a vintage sewing machine coloring book, and we'd like readers to suggest machines that are special to them for each letter of the alphabet.

Receive a Free Copy of the Coloring Book

If we accept your suggestion (and you're the first to make that suggestion), you'll get a free copy of the coloring book when it is published! One suggestion per person.

These are illustrations to be included in the coloring book. Of course, they will not be colored in the book... you will color them yourself!


Please read the guidelines below.

This Atlas was the first illustrated machine and inspired us to make the coloring book.

Guidelines for Suggesting a Machine

To suggest a machine, you should have a personal connection to the machine. What makes that model special to you? Your story is part of what may qualify a machine for inclusion in the coloring book.

You must provide a photograph of your machine at a side angle to be illustrated like the pink Royal you see above. The image should be high resolution. Googled images that do not belong to you may disqualify your suggestion. We're able to verify images using Google's uploaded image matching feature.

To suggest a machine, email us with your personal story and photograph(s). You'll have to type this email address in accurately. If you use the Contact page to reach us, our first correspondence will be to request your photo of your machine.

How about the White Rotary for W? I don't think I have a picture of mine, but I'll take one when I get downstairs...

What We Do at Still Stitching:


Our Film

  • We produced the only feature-length documentary on vintage sewing machines. Still Stitching has delighted thousands of viewers and urged the expansion of many collections. Many viewers tell us they watch it repeatedly. Ladies tell us that the film helped draw their husbands into their passion for vintage machines.

Custom Paint and Restoration

  • We are fortunate to assist many clients with procurement, high-end restoration, and custom painting of vintage sewing machines. While Singer 221 Featherweights are the most frequently painted model, we paint many other models such as the Singer 15, 66, 99, 201, and 301. We also refinish cabinets, treadle irons, and vintage sewing machine cases. Interested in our services? Contact us!
