Willcox and Gibbs Automatic

This lovely little machine is a Willcox and Gibbs Automatic which my brother in law found in a charity shop earlier this year.  He bought it and brought it straight round here, knowing that one day I would clean it up and try and get it sewing.  It also needs a minor repair job.

Once the quilt is finished I am going to get my fingernails nice and grimy working on this machine. I'm looking forward to it - a nice tinker over Christmas.


  1. What a great find! What a great blog!
    I tried to leave a comment on one of your earlier posts but with no luck! I'll give it another go!
    Love checking in on your blog! Great reading about vintage sewing!
    Take care,

  2. Thank you Mo and Joanne!

    My bro in law is staying with us at the moment and really pleased to see that people like this machine.

    Tomorrow we might have a go at the repair it needs... fingers crossed!
