I just bought two new machines (I'll put 'em up here once I've finished assembling them), so naturally I've been spending way too much time online looking at sewing machines. Ha.
One of the pages that caught my eye was this one:
This is from http://seikomachines.com/ It's interesting 'cause it's a totally slick site (with some awesome music, I might add--ha) advertising vintage-looking industrial machines. I want that beige one with the racing stripes on it! Unfortunately, it doesn't tell me where I can buy one (not that I've looked very hard)...but I don't really need any more machines. Ha.
It's also weird because they seem to be an Indian company and they use the Seiko name. In my understanding, Seiko is one of the Japanese sewing machine super powers. They used to make Consew's machines (or at least some of them) before Consew moved their ops to China.
Here's Seiko's website: http://www.seiko-sewing.co.jp/english/index.html
And on Seiko's page is says: "Important Announcement, March 1, 2010. We noticed that a company who sells industrial sewing machine [sic] is using 'SEIKO...' in their company name. But,we have no relationship to that company. "
I also got an email offer for this weird machine:
It's an ultrasonic "sewing" machine for welding plastic together. Awesome.
