    Sewing machine aholics anonymous

    Is there a group out there that can help. I just bought another sewing machine.:roll eyes: I can not stop.
    This is a viking 6430. I am up to 8 I think. I have got to quit. I have a necci that I bought new about 15 years ago that led to a new singer 2 years ago and has gone downhill ever since. Also have a Domestic rotary, a Kenmore rotary, a Brother, another old Singer, a Phaff and the viking. I think another is lurking under my cutting table.

    Only 8 in 15 years? Doesn't sound like a problem to me. We're up something like 35 since early August. That's a problem! Major work on the van is going to put a dent into our habit for a while - not to mention lack of space for setting up/displaying the ones we have. That's good, though, as it will give me time to start cleaning/repairing machines and to make display bases for them.

    Eight isn't too bad, I'm up to 11, but we're not in the minority. LOL

    My name is Mary and I am a sewing machine junkie. I like it and don't want to change. Does that kick me out of Sewing Machine aholics anonymous?

    I love all my machines, think there is about nine now. Have cut back due to lack of space. I cannot display them on their perspective tables due to lack of space which saddens be beyond belief. But I will muddle on, resisted two today at St. Vincent. I love your avitar, Queen. Might like to attempt that quilt top some day.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    I'm always a bit embarassed when my 11 year old daughter proudly proclaims that her mother has 16 sewing machines. (It might be a few more than that now...and I really only got started this summer.) I just love finding out about their history and what makes them tick

    I think I may have to join. My interest in vintage machines has only really got going in the last two weeks and in that time I have acquired two treadles, two handcranks and an electric which brings my total number of sewing machines to 9.

    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I have my one Singer 99 "Grace" that I just stumbled upon while at Goodwill two months ago. I will buy more but only if I happen to come across them. I am not planning on hunting any down. But if a vintage machine crosses my path and I like it I would purchase it.

    Yeah, me too. Almost. It may get worse though when the house is filled, the garage is filled and the overflow has filled daughter's house. Uh oh, I think that "intervention time" is getting close!
