This morning Chris Evans was talking to a lady who has a collection of vintage machines who will be at the following festival in June :

She also has a facebook page but, stupidly, I didn`t take note of her name (so not much use then!)

If anyone is in the NE in September we have The Festival Of Thrift... last year there was a stall selling vintage habby and sewing stuff... and two Featherwieghts.
If you’re in the area it a really good day out.

I would love to go to that Festival of Thrift, I wanted to go last year but decided not to go in the end because of the dog  :ninja:.  We would have had to leave him for too long or take him with us, which wasn't really an option, we figured it would be busy and didn't want him getting stood on.

There were lots of dogs there...it’s a huge site so nowhere is really packed

The lady's facebook page is Sew Nostalgic (or @SewNostalgicUK). I have just replayed the clip from this morning because I wanted to look her up :)
