    I think it would be cruel to separate them at this point. And they do look sooo cute together!

    And this would be my number 1 reason. I am retired, and there are very few days when my machine isn't in operation for several hours. If one of mine is on the blink and in the shop, there's another one. I even have a third very inexpensive one I carry around when we group sew. For me, this is a very practical reason to have more than one machine.

    Plus, I've seen all kinds of other good practical reasons here, too - piecing on one, other sewing on another; various stitches or setups being used alternately, etc ....

    Love my machines!!! And I know you do, too!!!

    I'm also surprised at how much the prices have increased for this machine, especially on eBay, where I have seen them actually sold (by checking the completed auctions) for around $1,000. I imagine it's because they were only produced in 2012, for Singer's anniversary, and supposedly there were a limited number of them made. The money factor is tempting (because I paid under $400 for the machine when I bought it), but I'm not going to let her go!

    I noticed on Amazon for a while that they priced at $2000.00 for the new ones ......and the last time I looked they were at $599.00. I bought mine and paid $199.00........omg, what a buy........and she's so pretty at that.
    Makes it even a better buy. Thanks for the input......I will begin to enjoy mine also......

    I THINK THEY ARE CUTER THEN CUTE. They'd have to drag me away kicking and screaming to get those two away from me. Hugs

    Frankly, I think splitting them up would be cruel. They look like twins. Fraternal, of course, not identical!

    If you are looking for enablers you have come to the right place. lol Selling the 160 would be like selling one of your children. Keep them both.

    you can always use a spare... you may end up showing someone how to sew and need one to share.
