    If your machine was a dog?

    If your sewing machine were a dog, what breed would it be? Our little sewing group had a fun time thinking about this. One was a Lab because it waited patiently for the next retreat, one a Chihuahua because it constantly jumped and skipped stitched, the speedy Juki was a Greyhound, and another (high-end name brand machine) an elegant Poodle. Hope you have fun thinking about this too.

    It would be a Westie (West Highland terrier). It is always ready to go on any adventure. All I have to to is turn it on and petal to the metal. No major problems with it. Fortunately, there is NO poop to pick up! Love it.

    mine would be a Puli, it has threads hanging around it and off of it all the time i'm sewing.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Well my old treadle would be a Saint Bernard because it's big, noisy but always faithful to sew through stuff my modern machine doesn't like. My Berninas would be Labradoodles ( sp) smart, energetic and sweet natured ( most of the time) with an occasional snarl.

    Definitely a lab, a chocolate one, because it's strong, enduring, easy to get along with, accepts change easily, willing to play any time, willing to travel anywhere, friendly to others, not finicky but knows what good for it, just my dear sweet friend.

    My bernina would be a bishion frieze, local ready to please at any time but quiet when needed. My janome would be a Labrador waiting patiently for a challenge.

    Mine would probably be a mutt as I love scrappies and often make "whatever" pops into my head.

    Ha, ha Jan. My Bernina 1260 would be a Golden Retriever for the same reason. Love it, and them.

    Although my favorite breed is the Rottweiler, I would have to say that my machine would be either a Sussex Spaniel, or a Clumber Spaniel. Slow, steady and not easily riled.

    (this was a fun question, by the way)

    I wonder what kind of car my machine would be.....

    Mine would be a Westie as well.

    Yes, my Husqvarna Epic would definitely be a Golden (after my Abby & Jessie who has gone over the Rainbow Bridge) & my Juki would be a sheltie (fast & agile like my sheltie, Lady). Love them dearly as I do my machines.

    I have to go with a greyhound. Sweet, gentle and 40 MPH couch potatoes.

    At one time I'd have said a collie, they are loyal to a fault and dependable. Now that I have had an American Eskimo for several years and an Akita (that just died at age 14 1/2) those would both be on the list. My American Eskimo is by my side constantly and I couldn't have asked for a better companion as my Akita was. Loyal, dependable are great features in a machine.

    Big, stubborn, quirky, battle-scarred junkyard dog....rescued of course...cheap because no-one wanted him. His name's Jasper. Now my loyal companion.
