This old sewing machine was used as a nostalgic prop in a men’s shop in Vienna, Austria, showcasing knitted neckties

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    I wondered about that old saying…what I learned is that it meant that if you repaired a hole early with a stitch or two, then not to, and finding that it took nine or more stitches with the larger hole

    Very cool, Phil! I learned to sew on an old machine like this.

  • monnie
    We had one, too! My mother had me do the intricate threading before she went to work!
