Keep an Eye on America’s Finest Sewing Machine Matchbook Magnet (MM91)

These machines were works of art – shiny black enamel with all kinds of gold lettering – utterly spectacular.  The whole company was the dream of two men who worked in an entirely different industry but noticed that people were starting to sew at home.  They pooled all they had, which was $350, and designed a hand cranking machine of excellent quality that was to retail for $10.  Eventually there were millions of New Home machines sold.

The fabulously sexy brunette with her sharp eye on the shiny, black machine is soooo terrific on this cover. I’m hopelessly bad using sewing machines. I quilt, but I sew all of it by hand, which I’m constantly reminded is ridiculously slow. Great salmon color on this cover, too.

The image you see is exactly what we used to produce the magnet. (We include 1 free GypsyFaith sticker per order.)

All GypsyFaith magnets are double the strength of a normal refrigerator magnet; this magnet will hold several pieces of paper to a surface without sliding. The surface is textured, so it does not scratch. We developed it over a period of several years with our production partner in China. It took us a long, long time to get to this PVC product. Our intention, as we developed this product, was to make it as durable as our handmade magnet products were when we first began selling them more than 14 years ago.

Images used to make our magnets are scanned at 9600dpi resolution, reduced to 960dpi for production.

SIZE: This magnet is exactly 1.835 x 2.362 inches OR 4.66 x 5.999 cm (It is about the size of the original matchcover.)

PACKAGING: This magnet is packaged in a hard plastic container for retail sale, then we place it into the mailer.

It ships in a hand addressed, postage stamped padded mailer.
