    I have to many sewing machines

    Well it is true. At last count I had 13. Well since then I have given 3 away and bought more. I once heard it is bad luck to count them. Well I am going to a retreat and wanted to take my FW but wanted a zig zag feature. But didn't wanted a heavy machine. So what was I to do. The auction had a fold out sewing singer tool caddy and a 301A in the original case and all the feet for $120.00. The weight was lighter than I expected. There was one like it on ebay for $200. So I guess it will be okay.

    Did have 12 machines but gave a lightweight Janome to my 7 yr. nephew because he wanted to learn to sew by making a camo vest! So now I have 11! But who's counting, eh? Other than that, I seem to have a hard time letting any of them go! Love them all and one doesn't have a motor (Singer Spartan) and one a green Singer and is pretty beaten up but sews beautifully...

    You certainly have started a collection! At the present time, I have 5 sewing machines, 3 of them Singers. The others are Janome and Kenmore. Then there's the embroidery machine (a Brother) I have stored in it's carrying case because the newest Singer also does embroidery. And I still claim the Brother CS-770 I left at mom's in exchange for my grandmothers Singer 413. I will get it back when she no longer needs it.

    Happy Quilting!

    I sew understand your dilema. I have 3 sergers, 3 pfaff 130's, Bernina 830 record, Elna Air electronic, another Elna that came with a cabinet, brother 2500D, 15" Bailey, oh and my pfaff 130-115 treadle, but what do I eliminate?
    I can't bear to part with any of them, except the Elna that I don't care for. It isn't a popular model so it wouldn't go for much.

    As we are sharing the love of the collection.....I do have a problem. My space in my sewing room is limited. Not complaining mind you. I do love my space. But I don't love that I can only have two machines out at once. I have four machines that sit in there cases because of lack of room to set them up. This makes me feel bad. I want to use them all on a regular basis. I see others I would love to bring home, but nope...no room. Ok, so the day will come when every bedroom doesn't have a occupant in it. Then my friends the machines are comming out.....ahhhhh, kinda felt good thinking about it.

    Do I understand you to say that you want a machine w zz feature to take to the retreat? If so, a Singer 301 is a straight stitch only machine. It's a great little machine, nice and light to take to classes, etc. but won't zz.
