Introduction to the NeedleBar Museum Archive

Welcome to the NeedleBar Museum Archive.

The NeedleBar was an international group of enthusiastic collectors of antique and vintage (1829 to 1960) sewing machines, who also had an interest in researching the history of these fascinating items, their inventors and their makers.

As the site owner I have been online freely sharing and maintaining information about this engrossing subject for 26 years since 1995. The NeedleBar Museum in this present form has been online since 2000.

The objective of the NeedleBar was to research, share and discuss information about the history, development and makers of antique sewing machines.
