    Got a name for your machine?

    If so please share with me. I got a Janome 6600 today and 'she' needs a name. I have no idea what to call 'her'.
    Thanks for the suggestions.

    My 6600's name is Janani! It means "mother", which is appropriate because she helps me birth so many projects.

    I also have a pretty little Featherweight named Miss Anise.

    Use her for awhile and see if a name becomes apparent--maybe a link to the name of the first quilt you make on her?

    My Slinger 401 Slant-O-Matic is Agnes after my deaf Grandmother. My Bernina is Bernice and you can probably guess why.

    I have named a couple of my machines but not my Janome 6600. I have to get busy on that.

    I have a Singer 66 treadle that I named "Smitty" after my mother-in-law. Her husband used to call her that because her maiden name was Smith. My husband told me she used to sit at her sewing machine and sew for his brothers and sisters. All 6 total.

    I also have a Featherweight which I call "Priscilla" because the machine is so Prissy looking. I love it!

    Good luck in finding a name for your precious machine.

    Give her time to adjust to her new surroundings, she will let you know her name, you will know it when you hear it.

    My featherweights have names as do my toy sewing machines, the latest being called Adele. My Janome 10000 is named Lightning (storm related). The husky 875Q is called various names not to be used in public.

    I've named only two of mine.
    The Singer 401A is "Workhorse" because it has been such a close, faithful companion for so many years.

    My Featherweight is "Violet". Just a pretty name for a pretty girl.

    All of mine have the same name: Money Pit.
    If I'm not buying fabric to feed them, I'm buying feet or other must haves they require. Let's not even mention when one has to go to the Doctor.
