    I just recently acquired a 1903 Singer 127 that was free from an Estate Sale. Sent it to my repair man for servicing and just got it back yesterday. What a beauty. Also I recently bought a Singer 201 Centennial on Craig's List for $10. A short time later I went to another estate sale looking for the blonde Singer sewing cabinet that was listed and, what a surprise, it had a 15-91 Singer inside, both items for $65. This got me to thinking, I wonder how many machines do my quilting friends have. I have a total of 11, One Universal, my first sewing machine that is nearly 40 years old, a Brother CS6000i, 2 Singer 201's, a Janome Mini Sew, A 1903 Singer 127, 2 Singer Featherweights. a Singer 15-91, a Singer 301A and a Singer 66 Treadle that was given to me by my MIL. My repairman says I have a nice collection.

    I didn't think "need" was a word in our vocabulary

    LOL! There ya go - that's the right answer! ;)

    If you had a hundred thimbles, no one would ask how many of them you "needed." :mrgreen:

    I stopped counting after 30. I don't want to know how many I have. Right now I am using 8 of them on a regular basis.

    As many as you can afford and have room for! That should give you enough scope, LOL.

    Then when you have found a treadle you don't have room for, could I have it please?
