    haha would you believe out of all these machines I have, I don't have a red eye OR a sphinx?!

    What I do have, is about 7 301 machines, among lots of other random stuff. I'm going to see if I can sell them on Craigslist or Ebay...or barter them for other stuff.I have my eye on a commercial embroidery machine and I'm hoping I can sell enough to pay for most of that.

    Okay, I am going to play also. My sister asked me how many I have, hmmm, that would be 11?

    1 Husqvarna Viking Emma (first machine, not computerized)
    1 Husqvarna Viking Designer SE
    3 Singer Featherweights (1950, 1953 and 1964)
    1 Singer 301A Long Bed
    1 Singer 15-90 (my grandmother's)
    1 Good Housekeeper recent purchased at a Share House for $25
    1 Husqvarna Serger
    1 APQS Millennium Long Arm
    1 Newly acquired Singer 66 Treadle Head (won on eBay Sunday night, YAY ME!!!!) Of course, I still need a cabinet for it.

    Not sure how many more I will buy. I would kind of like one of those pretty Blue Morse sewing machines to add to my collection and maybe a Pink Atlas too. Oh and a candy apple red repainted Singer FW would be nice also. LOL

    I don't want to know how many - I just want to know where to put the next one
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
