    I was reading the thread on the Tin Lizzie and it caused me to wonder how many name their machines?

    I really don't have names for my small machines but I did name my Gammill. Her name is Maxine since she did maximum damage to my checking account and well as available space in my studio.

    Yep, I sure do. We had a thread just a short time ago about naming them. Go to search and you will see how funny we quilters are...

    The only machine of mine that has been named is my Featherweight. I call her Agatha "Aggie" Faye.

    I sure do! I have a White that I call "Betty" and a Singer named "Sally". Those are the ones I use all the time.

    I also have a vintage Singer 66 that I call 'Granny' and a serger called 'Flash' (since she is so fast!)

    My Bernina is named Bernice....after that crazy gal from Designing Women. My favorite episode is when the girls give her a Christmas Tree skirt for Christmas and she comes in wearing it as a real skirt.

    Anyway long story...even longer. Yes I do, and I LOVE Bernice! :)

    I had a friend that asked why I named my machine Freya. I told her it's because she's a Viking of course. :)

    I named my Brother 900D after the wonderful guy who sold me it and services it...Bert. Because they are both relaibale and consistant:)
    And I named my 4000D Daisy... first because she was as pretty as a daisy...and afterwards she lived up to the name by playing 'love you...love you not...' everytime I wanted to sew with her...LOL! She has since gone in for a tune up and I am certain Bert will send her back with a better attitude.
