my name is Cil, and I live in coastal Virginia. I tried a 12-step program for sewing machine addiction and washed out, so I have decided it is time to just live with my problem. That means no more lurking, time to come out to the group.
I had my granny's 201-2 restored, and fell in love. So I started saving machines when I found them. First was a curbside find, a badged Capri in gold and white. Then my auntie gave me her hot pink FW, and my dh bought me a purple 222. New addiction- repainting machines that are unsalvagable.
I now also have: Singer 301, 503, red-eye 66(which will be my first total decal restoration/repaint), Morse fotomatic III and IV, pink Atlas machine, pink Remington machine, and 3 parts machines.
