    I named him!

    My first male machine! I named him "Tank"! So darn heavy, he came by the name honestly! Does anyone name their machines after a male or are they are girl names?

    I have:
    big mama
    Annabelle
    Esther & OPal
    Matilda
    Sylvie
    Sweet Pea
    and my latest "Tank" a male!

    I'll bet the girls were happy to see Tank his being a heavyweight and all.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Oh, the girls won't get to see him. He can't make it upstairs where the girls are, maybe that is for the best!

    My Mother says I am nuts but there is :
    Eloise, the Elna Pro Quilter
    Charlie, the School model Singer
    Janome, of course a Janome
    Sassy Singer, 404 Slantomatic
    Plain Jane, ancient Kenmore
    Indee, 31-15 Singer Industrial Machine
    Grandma, my first Singer Futura rightfully named for it was bought with inheritance from Grandma
    BAbyBoy, the Baby Lock Serger
    and there are a few more which are not named and have not came up with a name for the newest Singer, not sure the model..

    I've been known to call one of mine sonofa(bleep) ..... but that doesn't count does it?
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Now that is truly an act of Love. Mr Ed is one lucky machine. It is fun to hear about some male sewing machines and they story.

    I call mine 301A, 1630, 55, MO634DV, but that may be an R2D2, C3PO thing....really liked Star Wars and (sigh) Hans Solo.

    I named my 328 Frank, short for Frankenstein, because that is what he looks like next to my FW's and 201! To date, Frank is my only male machine.
