    I'm trying to think of a name for mine and I'm thinking about naming her "Florance Ida Katherine" after my mother.

    And does anyone refer to their sewing machine as a "he" ?
    LOL..My thoughts exactly!! I have 3 non-working older machines and my new one that I don't jive with too well, so naming is not a good idea here!

    :oops:

    My main machine is named Aurelia,after my great grandmother who was an excellent seamstress and quilter.I in herited her genes ,I think,as no one else in my family can even sew on a button.My oldest daughter has "The Needle" that she keeps around as she has three boys and must deal with splinters.It has never passed through a piece of fabric or a button.

    Never named my machines until I purchased my Bernina Series 8 830 machine. I call her Bertha or Big Bertha because of the size.

    My Bernina is "Bernie"
    My Janome is "Jenny"
    My Featherweight is "Flossie"
    My Gammills are "Gammie and Gabbie"
    Two Singers are "Sylvia and Sylvester" (just gave these away)

    I know....I'm not as creative with these names. I started naming them when I heard a news report that said people who name their cars take better care of them. Figured it would apply to the sewing machines, too.

    Now....to name the rest.....LOL

    The only one I've named is my Singer 66 and it's Lucille - after my granny who was my sewing mentor and other mother.

    My Janome is Janette, for obvious reasons; and my fw is Velma Genevive (Genny) after my grandmother who was a quilter and my inspiration.
