    Welcome Cil from Wisconsin. I just love your collection. Can't wait to see the others you mentioned.

    MimiBug23, paint your 66 anywhichway you want. You can tell anyone who asks that it is a 66 in disguise!

    Love the machines... but: do you need a special license or certification to sew on them because they look like the cockpit of a 747...lol.

    Welcome I know of what you speak. The 12 step thing did not work for me either.
    You will get what you expect to get.

    Welcome, MIM. As for myself, I am an enabler as well as a fellow addict.

    My name is Marty. I live in Charleston SC. I also love sewing machines. I have six and am going this weekend to get an old one from a friend in Kentuckey. I am now retired after 37 years of nursing....I am trying to make up for all the time I lost sewing when I worked.....I love all your machines..Thanks for sharing..

    DH says that after I retired, I turned into Fred Sanford. What he sees as Sanfordish, I see as beauty! Cil, I have that same Morse machine. My son says it looks like the result of an affair between a Juke box and a 57 Chevy. In fact, her name is Chevrolet! A friend's DH was complaining about her dolls, and mine chimed in with "at least they don't take up as much room as sewing machines!!!! That's ok, though. I know I'm addicted and I don't want to be cured. I've got a Morse, 2 vintage Kenmores, 2 vintage Singers, a Singer 27, a 66, a 15, and 2 new Janomes and I'm on the lookout daily for more! You can't ever have too many sewing machines!

    I will have to tell my DH about being Sanfordish- I love that term! I have one shelf that has 9 machines on it, and he is anxiously asking what happens when it is "full".
    he has asked me a couple of times what the focus of my collection is- all versions of one model, progression of the same brand, etc.
    He doesn't seem to understand my answer- which is 'whichever ones I fall in love with'.
