Sewing Machine Museum on the Pilgersteg – Masterpieces of Technological Progress
A passionate sewing machine collector presents his finds at an old factory site on the St. Jakob pilgrimage trail.
Roni Schmied found an old sewing machine in the trash at the age of 11. A passion was aroused and his collection now encompasses several hundred machines. When the collector ran out of space at his apartment, he opened a sewing machine museum at the Pilgersteg factory site, a protected monument.
Here visitors can admire his collection of treasures. From simple models to ultra-complex machines from different countries, from tools to status symbols and from industrial machines to toys – all are works of art.
Saturday 9.30am – 4.00pm
