“An admirable Sewing Machine."- Times.

The Sewing Machine is now a recognised necessity in every trade; and in every household where economy of time, reduction of labour (but greatly enhanced in value), the conversion of toil into pleasure, and an absolute immunity from the never ceasing demands of the needle, are regarded as matters of moment worth the acquiring.

“In rapidity of execution it excels all others; whilst the neatness, regularity, and durability of the work are unexceptionable."- Leicester Guardian.

"The Machine works beautifully, and it is self-evident it will do a lady's day's work in an hour." - Liverpool Mercury.

“Five or six pocket-handkerchiefs may be hemmed by this unique machine in nearly as many minutes." - Manchester Guardian.

“It will not happily take the needle out of women's hands, because there is much delicate and critical work which it cannot do; but it will soon put an end to the slavery to the needle under which so many English girls grow crooked and sallow and nervous and miserable.”-Harriet Martineau in Once a Week,

IMPORTANT NOTICE! Every Machine is guaranteed, and will be exchanged if not approved or found in working equal to representation. All Machines sold by us are protected under license arrangements with Mr. W. Thomas. Illustrated prospectus and samples of sewing sent to any address.
