About Us
We at 'Brown Paper Packages Tied Up with String' believe that machine sewing is as much an art or handicraft as hand spinning and weaving. Beautiful sewing can be done on a vintage Singer, with which hand stitching can bear no comparison. Time-tested and best-loved, Singer's star models are the Featherweights 221 and 222K and the slants 301 and 401A. Their attachments, both the common and the scarce, economize time and trouble and allow you to utilize your prized vintage Singer to create lovely pieces of artistic expression ~ unique-to-you works of finery! When you purchase a Singer attachment or Fashion Aid from us at Brown Paper Packages Tied Up with String, you can be assured that we will do our best to include helpful instructions on its use, even when the particular attachment set had none when newly acquired from a Singer Sewing Center in days gone by. Our aim is to help you know and use your vintage Singer sewing machine with pride and expertise! You'll be amazed at your own creativity and skill when you have the right Singer attachments at your disposal. Pour yourself a "cuppa" and enjoy browsing our shop of "a few of our favorite things".
