The 2023 Painting Schedule for Still Stitching

It's an unfortunate fact that at Still Stitching, we have a long waiting list of customers hoping to have their vintage sewing machine custom painted.

Occasionally, when we attempt to notify a customer that their turn is coming up, they fail to respond. We allow 48 hours, but if we do not hear from the client, we must move on to the next person on the list. If you respond within a week, we will still keep you in your position on the list, but in all likelihood, you will have missed an opportunity to get a firm scheduling date.

We are currently filling positions for the 2023 calendar year, so please watch for our message. We use the email address you provided us when you first asked to be on our list.

If your email address has changed, use our contact form to reach us, and you can also drop us a note via our Facebook page. DO NOT rely on commenting on one of our posts as a means of contacting us. Use the messaging feature. We don't mind if you email us and message us on Facebook to make sure you reach us - we understand how eager our customers are to make sure we keep them on the list!

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!
