Guidance for Identifying, Assessing and Recording Sewing Machines and Typewriters

Resource verified by SHCG editorial group


The object of this guide is to create an informative record by exploring the essential elements that make up a useful object description. Usually, it is the general ‘object description’ field that most curators will read, so let’s take a look at what this might contain, and how best we can achieve it, for
an object from each of two of our categories – sewing machines and typewriters.  This is also a useful guide to identifying some of the sewing machines and typewriters that may appear in museum collections.
