    That is a very good question. I do not know which one. Food for thought.

    Needless to say, I would first grab purse, dog, file box, and photo albums. HOWEVER, since you asked which machine I would grab, I'm going to assume all other precious items had already been rescued.

    I would grab my Janome because my old Kenmore has served me well BUT I no longer use it. Plus, my Kenmore is very sturdy and might even possibly survive that fire! My Brother was less expensive and would be more easily replaced, if needed. My other Brother (embroidery) is sweet but I could easily live without it. Yep, I'd go with my trusty Janome, which so far, has never failed me.

    Thank you Nessie for reminding us that the original question was which machine you would grab. It was assumed all other items had already been rescued.

    My featherweight. Small and light weight so it would be easiest to grab and go.

    This brought a smile to my face this morning - my kids used to make fun of me and tell people that if there was a fire in the night I would be saving my sewing machines and fabric and might as an after thought yell for them to get up, and I would always tell them that I wouldn't either I would yell for them to get up and help me

    Definitely my Babylock Destiny, but it would kill me to have to leave the others.

    The Elna 62C that has so many memories, though she doesn't quilt. I can replace the vintage machines that do quilt so well, a Singer 301 (2) and a MW 15 clone. All the others are not in use.

    My Brother Innov-Is 1500D it is my newest, and best machine I own
    (besides the Innov-Is 1000) both are combo machines.

    yup. just the featherweights, and the all silk, victorian funeral crazy quilt. of course, the dogs and cat would be in dh's car already, and i would drive my mustang with the top down, in case it's the last time i get to drive her.

    My bernina would go in the car after the dogs and cats, then purse clothes photo album. Rest would depend on reason leaving and for how long.
    Finished is better than a UFO
