    Fun! My sons enjoy the fact that their first sewing machine, which they share, is a Brother. "Betty" is so appropriate for a machine made in 1949.

    How cute, my dd always wants to name mine. I have a JUKI mid-arm on a grace frame so she calls that one Gracie with my Brother being called all kinds of different names. She said she can't decide so she will keep trying until something sticks.
