Just received and read your new book HOW TO MAKE MONEY WITH VINTAGE SEWING MACHINES. This book is a good investment, great and timely information, well written. Neal.

I have owned a 2905 White Sewing machine for 40 years. Yesterday I contacted this website to see if they knew if bobbins were available. After a short bit I received a reply and info to purchase bobbins. I have since purchased bobbins for my sewing machine and after 40 years will now have more than 2 bobbins. Extremely happy with the cheerful and knowledgeable customer service I received for such a small purchase. I would highly recommend this site to anyone who is looking for help with finding vintage sewing machine parts. 5 stars in my book. Dawn.

Just wanted to touch base with you and let u know that the spool holder and the hinge screws arrived.  I love the spool holder!  Hard to find!!!!   Regards, Zoraida

Hi Connie, My order arrived today all it looks great.  You were right, the face plate polished up easily and it's just beautiful!  It's a pleasure doing business with you. Thanks again, Doneene


Hi just wanted to say thanks again , parts arrived safely, beautiful packaging, very well done, Best wishes Joost and John.

The parts for my  Vintage Singer Models 457 &  513 already arrived Friday. Boy, that was quick. They are in very good condition and so nicely packed. Thanks Connie, you’re the best!  Andy, one of your very satisfied repeat customers.

Thanks ! Outstanding in every respect. Vintage 1951 Singer Featherweight 221 Sewing Machine CARRYING CASE.


I just received the 1951 centennial featherweight I purchased from Connie and it is beautiful! I have wanted one for so long but wanted to make sure I purchased one from someone who knew something about them. I definitely found the right person! First of all, from the moment I purchased it, Connie was in contact with me every step of the way. From the moment she was packaging it, until the time I received it. It was packaged very securely. Each piece was individually wrapped in bubble wrap and labeled. When I unwrapped it, it was just as the pictures showed it to be. And I was pleasantly surprised to find that Connie had taken the time to include all of the background information on my featherweight and all of the maintenance she had done to it. She also included a signed copy of her book: "How to Select, Service, Repair & Maintain Your Vintage Sewing Machine", which I'm sure I will find very handy in the future. I am completely satisfied. Thank you Connie! Susie Browning.

I looked all over the web for a replacement part for my Peerless sewing machine. Nothing matched. Then, I accidentally found your site. Thank God I found you. With minimal searching I found my part in almost new condition. Fast shipping and here I sit with my Grandmother's vintage sewing machine in great working condition. Thank you for giving back my fond memories of my Grandmother. You are an angel from heaven above.  Lee, CA.

I have been rehabbing vintage Singer Sewing Machines for about 12 years now, many for charitable purposes. I have a short list of vendors I go to for most of the parts I need, and thrifyfarmgirl.com is at the top of that list. Why? I’d have to say it’s quality and service. I always receive exactly what I ordered and it arrives well packed in a very short time.  Many other vendors could take lessons from thriftyfarmgirl concerning communications and notifications as hers are Top Shelf. Now, we can even send parts request in and she will keep an eye out for them and notify you when available, even if is a different vendor who has what you want. Now that is true customer service. So thank you thriftyfarmgirl, for helping me restore these wonderful machines and get them into the hands of people who will put them to good use. Very Nicely Done!
Andrew, an Arizona customer.
