I got an offer to buy Omni stitch os-1000 machine with the very cheap price. Now the only problem is that I have never heard a machine like that . What can I do with it, is it like a normal lock stitch machine? The person who is selling it, doesn't know anything about sewing (it her mothers machine, she has passed away) and there is no manual. Also the power cord is missing. Is there any place where can I buy missing parts if necessary? I'm from Finland and couldn't find importer here .

Ebay has them for sale.

Omni Stitch os1000

This is just one item on ebay, but if you look you may find the parts you need or you might try emailing the owner to see if they know where you can buy parts. Sometimes the folks selling them are dealers.

I wrote to sewingdoc on Ebay. He has an ebay store that sells and locates parts for vinatge machines. I will let you know what he says when he writes back.

Here is a link to his ebay store...

Hope this helps.

An Omni Stitch machine isn't really a sewing machine. It's an embellishing machine (free motion) and I don't think it has a bobbin. Here's a pick of what it can do. Click here.

Here's a beautiful example of what can be done with an Omni Stitch. Click on the little picture to enlarge-wow!:
Omni Stitch scene

I remember about ten years ago seeing these advertised in sewing magazines. It is a free motion embroidery/couching machine that you can use ribbons, cords, etc. that will sew out looking scrunched.

I think the Yahoo group posted earlier would be a great resource on it.

Wow, that looks cool. I wonder if it is anything like the BL Embellisher? It kind of looks like it.

Much better pic than mine. Yarn is used in these machines, and almost looks like the needle punching that's done by hand in a hoop.

They stopped making the Omni Stitch quite a few years ago. Don't know why....................probably low sales.

Umm...who made this machine anyway? The guy I asked about finding the parts said that Fina would have to go through a dealer for the parts, so who would have sold them?

The company was called Glennen and I don't think parts are readily available. I guess the "Omni Stitch yahoo group" would be the people to ask. You can't get in to these yahoo groups unless you register, though. Not a problem, but I personally think it's annoying. The least they could do would be to let you read some of the posts first, just to see if you want to register. Guess that's where they get their statistics, though. again

Thanks a lot for your answers! Now I'm a little bit smarter . Anyway, I think it might not be a good idea to buy this machine if it's so difficult to get accessories . I spoke to person who sells the machine and he said that there is not even pedal with it...
