    and the Firemen are in danger for their lives, but one gentle soul tells you he'll run in and drag out one sewing machine and one quilt ONLY. All others will be completely destroyed. What machine and quilt do you tell him to save?

    None of them. They are things..... I would want him to be safe with all of the other firemen.

    I'd have him save a cat. :shock: Since I have 7, there's only so many of them I can grab as I go out the door myself.

    As for machines... I'm not attached to them. I can't afford to replace them either... but that's another story. :-P

    If he is safe going back in I would have him get the last quilt my Mom made before she died. I wouldn't worry about machines.

    I'll play...I would have him save my non-working, in pieces brother sewing machine from wal-mart that my husband gave me about 13 years ago. The quilt would be.........the blue and yellow I made for our bed.

    I know Candace doesn't mean for any fireman to even be hurt, and I'm assuming she isn't asking what else I'd save (my grandma's sewing cabinet and notions, my Flopsy bunny doll she made clothes for, mementos of my late brother) so I'll say my Centennial featherweight. I think it's the least replaceable of my machines, except maybe my new-old Bernina 930, and I'd worry the fireman would get a hernia trying to drag that one out.

    My featherweight and a quilt I made for my Dad. It's a scrappy flying geese with bright colors and a black background.

    I would never ask anyone to put their lives in danger to save anything in my house. All those things can be replaced, a person's life cannot!

    OK, no one is going to get hurt. If I could have one machine and one quilt magically appear at my side (see no one is in danger) it would be my Pfaff and my bargello that I sleep with every night.

    Well I only have one machine, so I guess it'd be my singer. Although I don't think he could get it out easily since it's attached the cabinet (one of those folds down inside thingies) and I haven't the slightest clue how to get it off!

    Quilt wise, I think I would save the Mario wall hanging I made for DH for Christmas this year. It took quite a bit, he loves it and everything else I have that is quilted is a few WIPs and such.

    I would have to tell him to forget the sewing machines grab my laptop and the usb sticks... All my quilts are on those usb sticks. and my pictures are too. the sewing machine would have to be replaced.

    If my house caught on fire and the fireman said he can save two things for me I would have him FIRST save the picture of my late sister and her family its the only one I have. And I would have him save my laptop that way I could keep in contact with everyone on this board. I also have insurance so I could get a new machine and new fabric. :)

    Nope! You can only save a sewing machine and a quilt. Those are the rules of the game! :> You must choose or you save nothing!

    I wouldn't worry about the machine, but the full-size scrap quilt with 9 Y-seams per block - yeah, please save that. Because I'd never attempt it again.

    Oh darn okay here we go Save my old Brother sewing machine. He's hiding out underneath my computer desk right now. Guess he deserves it hes given me lots of pleasure like no man can. And my late mother in laws kingsized Snowball quilt that I posted a picture of the top earlier its in the tote on the cutting table in my sewing room.

    I would want my Janome 9000 and the quilt on our bed that I made for my DH. And a big hug from the hunk that rescued them.
