About wk binger / Vintage Sewing Center & Museum

The Vintage Sewing Center & Museum (“the M”), located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is a unique, hands-on museum that encourages patrons to explore and sew with the machines on display.  With hundreds of antique and vintage sewing machines plus fabric, notions, and quilting supplies onsite, the M is a sewing aficionado's dream.  I, WK Binger, the M’s Curator, will escort you back to the days of treadles and hoop skirts then on to Rocketeers and saddle shoes, through an unbelievable collection of sewing machines, memorabilia, and artifacts. 

Pull up a chair and recall memories of your grandma at her sewing machine or make your own memory at one of the sew-ready machine stations.  Learn to sew with the lessons offered in this unique environment that promotes and encourages creativity for all ages.  We host children’s birthday parties, Scout and 4H activities, offer lessons in sewing and other textile arts, machine servicing and repair.  We also provide maintenance and repair services.  Our guided tours are full of funny and sentimental stories about the machines and their previous owners.  We are keeping history, the love of sewing, and their memories alive.

I began the journey in 2016 when I was asked to find good homes for two sewing machines.  It quickly became known that I was helping owners rehome their beloved sewing machines.  Machines started appearing at my door, sometimes several at a time, until my house was filled.  A friend suggested I start a sewing machine museum so that all might enjoy the machines.

I built the M from scratch, pouring my blood, sweat and tears into making it a place I could be proud of and share with others.  We operate by collecting small admission fees, selling items from our gift shop, and donations from generous donors like you.

At the M, children under 15 always get in free.  Our goal is to instill the love of all things sewing in our newest generation.  Your monthly donation will ensure that is always possible every day.  Thank you for supporting the M!
