H G Palmer Sewing Machine

Described by some as looking like something Buddy Holly would drive the H G Palmer metallic blue sewing machine made in Sydney NSW is an object of beauty and weighs a ton.  I bought this today at a Salvos Store, it was irresistible. It came with a jar of old sylko cotton reels.

close up image of the detail, its truly splendid...


  1. i have this sewing machine and i cannot work out how to thread it. can someone help please

  2. I've just come across this. I have exactly the same machine and cannot figure out how to thread it. Do you know? I figure that with over 2 yrs gone by you may have found out how. Would you please let me know how to thread it.
    Thanks heaps

    1. Sorry I sold this machine a few years ago without ever using it. Maybe ask the question in google.

    2. If anyone is looking for the manual for the electric blue H G Palmer straight stitch sewing machine, the Morse sewing machine is exactly the same and you can download this manual for free at ...

      If you are looking for a video on how to thread the machine and the bobbin, then you can find out how to do that on youtube, here using a machine that is basically the same, just with a different badge name ...

  3. You can type into youtube... How to thread a Singer 15-90. Almost exactly the same or you can download the manual for this singer from for free.

  4. I have this machine, I love it.
