    You know I'm not getting any sewing done sitting here reading this thread! But keep the jokes and info coming.

    So far I've only got 2 tops made out of my flannel scraps and theres still one machine waiting attention.

    Tomorrow I'm going to a quilting/sewing bee that my church has twice a month. Its my first time going. I don't have much to bring them for show and tell right now but some of the ladies asked me if I would bring a machine or two to show, so I decided I would take the Wanzer HC, because its in working condition, if I can figure out how to sew on it. That way they can actually play on it a bit. (see my thread posted asking for help).

    I think I will take one of my clones along as well. If you were not a collector but sew, what machines do you think would be of interest? I don't think I will take my featherweight along. I'm sure being quilters that they've all seen or have one of those.

    I'm looking forward to 5 hours of child-free sewing time and getting to know some new ladies. I'm fairly certain I'm going to be the youngest one there, but thats nothing new. Rarely do I ever meet anyone my age who has the same interest in these machines as I do. I've decided I'm going to take a project to work on for myself, not one of my customer orders. I need to do something for me for a change.

No one that smokes that much would be on a bike, let alone on a Mountain riding a bike. I never did understand that one. Butt (pun) did you notice that it has a blue foot controller? Not pink. What would Rodney say?

    Ok between you and Miriam, everyone is probably laughing and thinking about those old Marlboro commercials! I bet that Marlboro machine was owned by a tall lanky cowboy! Ya think he mended his chaps with it? Of course, it has to have a blue foot controller! You wouldn't find a Marlboro man putting his foot on a pink controller!

    I hope you have a great, child-free day! I think you should consider taking something that is colorful and shiny. A 15 clone, perhaps? or a Singer with great decals? I would take either my Atlas(pink), or my Monarch 15 clone(also pink), or my Remington clone(blue). With any of those, I could drop my feed dogs.

    And after running a great seam, he'd sit back, and say "Ahhhh...", with great contentment in his voice .

    I was thinking about taking my baby blue Ambassador clone as well. Most of my really neat machines are in treadle cabinets so those will be for another time, and my other ones are not in cases, just orphan heads.

    Cool that you have the pink machines too. My heard also has a pink Monarch in a Monarch case and two pink Atlases, one in an Atlas case. They sew nicely too.

    Have a good time jennb. Sew yourself something fun and show off those vintage machines.

    I could not go back and edit. My bad on heard; I meant herd of sewing machines, which is out of hand. More like stampede.
