    No collecting

    Okay... I have made up my mind. I am not going to increase my small collection. (mostly because i lack the room). I think what I have is enough. A total of 8. Most are modern and very useful for what I do. I can keep up by viewing what others have collected and be a virtual collector. I will take my limited fortune(ha) a purchase fabric for my first love (quilting).

    Yea, I put my foot down on collecting machines too, right on a sewing machine peddle all the time. One treadle, two FW, two sergers, a 301A, a Janome, one spartan and two 185's, and red eye and two couple odd ball machines not sure what they are yet. We won't speak of the pretty PINK Montegomery Ward machine I bought couple days ago for $3.99. Nope, I ain't collecting either. You neither Charlee, right? Wink, wink! You best stay out of resale stores and away from yardsales CC.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    Good luck with that. Don't you realize you're an addict! No one tells you how addicting quilting is when you start.

    I never thought of myself as a collector, even though I have about 20 machines, from treadles, featherweights, to one fairly new embroidery/sewing machine. And I can't help looking at garage sales, thrift stores, craigslist, and ebay. It must be contagious, because now my sister's herd of machines has started growing.

    Is there a 12-step program for sewing-machine-aholics?

    There is a 12-step program for addicts, and I'm afraid you're right in the middle of it...we meet more than once a week, though...
