I have divided up the Plates pages, for ease of use. I have lots of plates for all manner of machines. Some are very good, and some are very poor, see the descriptions. The image is almost always of the item - all are usable, but may need cleaning. If I have more than one I send the best first.
If you are contemplating buying a machine with the bobbin plate missing, please be aware that they are exceedingly hard to find, and not getting any easier....
PLEASE NOTE - the images on this page are not to scale...
Page revised and updated and tickled and finally tempted with more chocolate drops on the 16th June 2015, then poked again (gently) on 3rd October 2015
