    My 6th grade sewing teacher would tell us that sewing with a machine is a lot like driving a car. There's the gas pedal, you steer with your hands, etc... She even made us take a test to get our "driver's" (sewing) license before we were allowed to make projects on the machines.

    So now I'm wondering if my sewing machine were a car, what kind of car would it be? Something fancy and fast? Something big and strong? A muscle car? Something cutting edge or a classic?

    Well, my Singer Diana I believe is from 1973. She still runs great without question, but is not fancy at all. It's just dependable and simple. One of those cars that get you from point A to point B.

    So, what kind of machine do you drive?

    To celebrate my last child graduation from college I bought a Cadallic (much cheaper then college) for myself. I don't want to drive anything else from now on except a nice luxury car but my machines are vintage Singers and a compact lightweight Janome for travel so I guess they would be Model A's and a Volkswagen.

    I drive a 2011 GMC pickup with all the frills you can get. Drives like a cadillac but I drive a singer 66-1 treadle for working on quilts. The machine was made in 1916. Glenn

    I've got an old reliable VW Bug (198X Kenmore), a Land Rover (H-Viking - they go through everything!), and a sexy but finicky Italian sports car (Janome MC6500).

    Pat says the Babylock would be a luxury sedan like a Lexus. The Pfaff is more like an older Audi.
