Default Hello from Atlanta, GA

Hello, my name is Kat, and I am new here. I have been collecting machines for years, but always took them in for servicing. I am now starting to do my own servicing which lead me here. I have 12 vintage machines, 2 Industrial machines, and 1 Chinese patcher. (Think singer 29K, but rattier ) I started restoring a few but had to put on the brakes because I was clearly mucking things up, so I decided to come here and learn a thing or two from you great people. This last week I have been doing nothing but reading the boards, and it has helped me tremendously.

Thanks for having me.

Welcome aboard! I spent a number of years refurbishing vintage machines for a charity and used them myself as well. Just this past fall a friend gave me a lovely modern machine -- have to admit I love the self threader!

This is a fun place full of nice people who take the time to answer questions and share their knowledge. Hope you enjoy your time here and with the machines.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

Hi and welcome from North Carolina! Do you quilt on those machines too? Or, do you enjoy collecting and working on them?

Welcome from a fellow collector in South Dakota. Both my adult kids live in the Atlanta metro area, so I've gotten quite a few machines from that location.
