    I have 4 sewing machines and a serger. Went to a church rummage sale and bought a vintage White machine, with all the attachments in the original tin (most of them still wrapped in cellophane), the manual still had the warrantee cards in it and I KNOW that machine had maybe been used once. It cost me a whole $3.00!!! I gave it to a friend who wanted to learn to quilt but couldn't afford to buy a machine. I really wanted to keep it, but, I figured I could pay it forward a little and I could use the good Karma.

    SM hoarders, there is a good looking Singer Rocket or Rocketeer on ebay right now. $189 bid or $229 buy it now. I think that is a really good price.

    I have too many machines, too. The problem is that when you have them it is hard to get rid of them. They each seem to have their purpose, but they all take up space and have to be maintained!!

    Oh, I have the same problem and shame on me, because I haven't even learned what I need on my sigerxl 1000. Use my old pfaff for everything. But it is still fun to look.

    I use my serger seldom, because I cant seem to coordinate how to sew a flat lock seam, or a curve,, so for me it only works when I need a neat seam finish that has to be trimmed, although it is easier than zig zagging an edge, :-)

    I have a whole pile of machines, and the last two weeks I have needed three! The Featherweight was having problems with the thread catching in the bobbin area so it went out of town to be repaired. Then my Pfaff threw a tension fit and usually I can get it corrected, but not this time, so when I go after the Featherweight I will take the Pfaff for repair. Now I am sewing on my Babylock machine and so far it is hanging together! It's okay to have several backups!

    Maybe thats why we have so many machines. Twice I have been left without my machine. Well, I then got a backup and then another and now I'm okay, if ones gets sick or dies.
