Can Anyone Help Identify these Vintage Sewing Machines?

June 24, 2011

Hi Sew Retro!  My mom and I bought these 2 vintage sewing machines months ago and know nothing about them.  I was hoping someone could help me identify them or point me toward some resources that might be helpful.

Here they are:

1)  Model DST Deluxe Streamliner straight-stitch machine

2)  The second is a Queen (?) zig-zag machine:

More details on my blog!

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you, thank you, thank you in advance!

  1. I can't help, but I must say they are simply beautiful! I love old sewign machines, its a shame the ew ones don't look like them, or the old ones don't do the same things!

  2. In the 50s/60s/70s there were a number of machine brands made that only existed for a brief period of time or were off-shoots of some other company. Most of the machines were made in Japan, some by companies like Toyota before they became the Toyota we know today. Some of the machines are replicas of Singers or other larger brands, other have fun different appearances though obviously the function is all the same. You may not ever find info on your specific machines, though there are vintage Japanese sewing machine groups around the internet, but you can follow care instructions for any similarly aged machines.
