    Do you name your machines?

    Named my latest machine Elvis - it's a blue Japanese Sovereign vintage - with a crown, for the King! Oh and the blue color? Well that's easy - Blue Suede Shoes of course!

    Am I the only crazy one? Do you name your machines?

    this is my first thread. I love this board,thank you all so much! IName:  image.jpg

    All my machines have names. My Juki is "Big Boy". My Pfaff is Baby and my featherweight is Suzie.

    Quilting is my therapy

    Like your name for your Featherweight littlehud that's my name too! My Featherweight is named Martin. Found him in a thrift store on Martin Luther King day for $27.00 dollars. One of the luckiest days of my life!

    My black FW is Maggie May, have not named my white one (although Margaret or Memere after my Mom has come to mind) or any of my other machines. My car is Rosie (the roadster). We used to have a Previa mini van and it was the Mothership, one car I called Bertha.

    I think that's the perfect name for your machine. Would love to have a great looking Japanese machine like yours but I don't know where I'd put it.

    I have two machines, or three if you count the one I loaned to DD. only one , my FW, has a name. She's named after her original owner I call her my Little Ray of Sunshine.
