A bit of Story

Founded in 2007 by Chris and Terry, Central Michigan Sewing Supplies emerged from a passion for salvaging vintage sewing machines and preserving their legacy. These machines are not merely tools; they embody memories and dreams. At the time, the availability of sewing machine parts was scarce, with vintage machines often neglected in thrift stores or disposed of in landfills. Chris was compelled to intervene, ensuring that these historical workhorses were not lost to oblivion.

Happiness is surrounding yourself with people that spark joy.

Preserving Vintage Sewing Machines: A Sustainable Journey

From Landfill-Bound to Stitching Glory

In a world where fast fashion dominates, and disposable culture prevails, there’s a quiet revolution happening—one that involves vintage sewing machines. At Central Michigan Sewing Supplies, we’ve made it our mission to rescue these timeless treasures, breathe new life into them, and keep them out of landfills. Here’s how we’ve become stewards of sustainability:

1. The Forgotten Gems

Vintage sewing machines—those sturdy workhorses that once graced countless homes—are often discarded when they fall out of favor. They gather dust in attics, basements, and thrift stores. But we see beyond the rust and faded paint. We see the legacy of craftsmanship, the stories woven into every stitch, and the potential waiting to be unlocked.

2. Spare Parts and Ingenuity

Central Michigan Sewing Supplies is a treasure trove of spare parts. Need a bobbin case for your vintage Singer? We’ve got it. Missing a tension spring for your Kenmore? We’ve got that too. Our inventory spans decades, and our commitment to sourcing rare components ensures that no machine is left behind.

3. Stitching for Generations

By saving vintage sewing machines, we’re stitching together generations. Grandmothers pass down their beloved Singers to grandchildren who discover the joy of creating. These machines become heirlooms, connecting families across time. And with each stitch, we honor the craftsmanship of yesteryears.


At Central Michigan Sewing Supplies, we’re not just in the business of selling parts; we’re in the business of preserving history. So the next time you see a vintage sewing machine, think twice before relegating it to the landfill. It might just be waiting for a second chance—a chance to sew memories, stitch dreams, and weave sustainability into the fabric of our lives.

Join us in celebrating vintage sewing machines, one stitch at a time! 🌿🧵✨
