- If I may ask, how did you find out about this place closing? I WISH I lived closer...I'm in Southwestern Florida.

i dont know where you are...but a blue jeans manufacturer just went out
of business (i worked there for 10 years in my much younger daze).
they're selling off hundreds of industrial sewing machines...all
kinds...digital and manual.
embroidery machines, flat felling machines, straight stitch machines,
bar tackers, hemmers, and safety stitch/overlock machines. some use
chain stiches, others use bobbins. there are pfaffs, brothers, singers
and union specials. several are very new looking, but the ones that
arent have been very well maintained.
i dont know how much longer they'll be available, since the plant is
trying to get moved out of their building asap.
but they are in western north carolina (micaville, nc to be
exact...north of asheville).
the man to contact is sam cook...his email address is sam@...
i hit them up for left over fabric and got about 50 still wrapped bolts
of black denim and white denim...different weights. and several more
of blue denim. along with boxes of cones of thread. all of this stuff
they donated to the college and summer stock theatres where i work as
designer/shop supervisor. i think that was pretty much it for the free
they're selling off EVERYTHING in the place. cutting tables and
cutters, buggies, tables, chairs, computers, desks, file cabinets...you
i'd recommend looking into things like that (closing factories, i mean)
for extremely great deals on good machines.
