    Well, I have a small herd,[15] but a sister thinks I've had one too many strokes. She thinks it cleared out my head. She will say what in the ............are you going to do with those machines. I didn't know I had to do anything with them, but look and oil and clean and touchy, feely. I love them.

    I'm done worrying what my family thinks - With the way the new health care is likely to take away our assets if we run up a big bill, they will at least inherit some kind of asset... just saying... I doubt if the gvt wants sewing machines, houses and land yes... machines I highly doubt it. Just keep them from rusting.

    Lots of the machines are Singers, no? How about a chorus?
    Courtesy is not optional.

    Maybe this will help. There were literally millions of sewing machines produced. Compared to that even out largest ummm collections, herds, murders, mountains, choruses, whatever are really quite small. We can collect as many as we want and not feel guilty.

    My sister is convinced I am out of my mind. Whatever. She hates quilts too, so we try not to discuss my hobbies.
