Vintage Sewing Machine Center and Museum

The VSMCM is a treat. Visually there is so much to see. The machines are amazing, the wall art is stunning, and the ability to touch the machines is memorable. I would suggest calling prior to your visit for an optimal experience.

A huge variety of machines to see. Hands-on learning, great informative tour; I even got to learn how to use the long-arm quilting machine. I went with family, and even the kids had fun. Can't wait to go back.

Did someone say "long-arm quilting machine?" Outta the way -- we're Tulsa-bound!

Vintage Sewing Center and Museum

This museum is a treasure. I saw rare sewing machines as well as common ones painted and restored. The murals were gorgeous and the theme rooms were inspired. There was something for everyone even if you don't sew.

Vintage Sewing Center and Museum

WK Binger is the curator of one of the best-kept secrets in Tulsa. He is a wonderful man who, two-and-a-half years ago, just wanted to learn to sew so he could re-upholster his boat cushions and go fishing. He fell in love with sewing and the old machines and built this museum so that others with like interests would have a place to see machines they may not ever have another opportunity to see.

Binger has collected over a thousand sewing machines and has more than half displayed on shelves, plus more that can actually be used. It is a hands-on museum, encouraging people to learn to sew, use vintage machines, and see antique machines that may not be available anywhere else.
