    Herd? Stable? Flock? Murder? School?

    What is the proper term for our, er, collections?

    -Cecilia. Tinkering more than stitching, really.

    I would love to use murder but alas, not all of my machines are black.

    I tend to call it "the horde".

    If I drag many more home there'll be a murder here too. Mostly though I think herd is appropriate.
    Getting rid of machines is "Thinning the herd".
    Miriam after your last buy I think mountain might apply in your case.

    Yes well I need to make a post about how you know when to junk out a machine... I'm getting really good at it. That will thin the herd, too.

    mine is Precious! Ok- so I've been watching Lord of the Rings again - but seriously, it borders on some sort of obsession, don't you think?
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments
