More than Sew Sew

Antique sewing machine doorstop

A local sewing shop has a brilliant repurpose – an antique sewing machine as a doorstop.  Although it’s old, it’s probably not working and even if it is, functionally isn’t as convenient as today’s fancy, light model machines. So if not for this business’ creativity, it would likely end up in the landfill.

Those things weigh a ton – it’s a genius repurpose!

I’ve walked by it for years and love that this little shop has this clever repurpose right out front where everyone in the community can see it.

And propping the door open all day (spring through fall in our mild climate) is a big, friendly White Rock-style “come on in”.

If you’ve ever in White Rock, BC give a thumbs up to the girls at Laura’s Fashion Fabrics on Johnston Road  (
