    how did it happen?

    I started out with a JC Penney sewing machine. Now I have a Featherweight, a Kenmore and I just picked up a White model 568 for 5 dollars and a little plastic singer sewing machine for kids. Oh and the old Singer my brother gave me with a cool sewing cabinet that currently holds the White.
    I don't want to part with any of them. I'm sick, I've caught the sickness.

    Well, hate to tell you, but, there's no cure. No medicine to fix it. Just gets worse. The only thing that helps is more sewing machines.

    I may give the White to my daughter after a thorough going over by my repair guy. But I want to play with it first. The Kenmore is a 158.850 and I got the cams on ebay.
    Does anyone know of a good place online for fabric? I like Fabricguru.com but would love to know who everyone uses.

    So many good ones, Missouri Star, Connecting Threads, Fabric.com, Marshall Dry good among others. I have a treadle singer, a white rotary treadle both in nice cabinets, A singer with cams, model slips my mind, with cabinet and knee lever, Helen my Grandmothers 201, a smaller singer much like that 91-??, a Kenmore 1521 I bought new in 1970's, Kenmore 19000, a brother SQ9000 and a babylock serger 3 thread and a Janome 4 thread. I quit because I had no room for more, and can't use some I have because of lack of room.
    Too old to build a room too, so I get green when I see nice sewing rooms.
    But love to see others spaces.

    I really wish there was a point and laugh button. You have the same problem as the rest of us here.
    If you're after fabrics other than quilting cottons Mood Fabrics is fun.

    I agree with everyone. There is no cure.. So welcome and embrace the illness... I try and contain myself but sometimes I cannot resist the lure of the decals and sleek lines of the vintage machines....
    You are the youngest today as you will be for the rest of your life... do something fun!
