Keeping vintage sewing machines humming

From Afternoons, 1:25 pm on 5 February 2024

Maybe you have a Vintage sewing machine in your home, or maybe one that  needs repairing... or perhaps you'd like one. 

Peter Hogg collects, repairs, and sells vintage sewing machines, and not just that,  he also sells them for charity.

Peter worked at the Singer sewing machine shop on Timaru's Stafford St in the 1960s and has been tinkering with the machines for some time  - he now repairs and sells them for the St John shop in Timaru.

We speak to Peter.
