    I've been reading this newsletter for over a year and decided I'd better get involved.
    I have been sewing since I was 11 - 50 years! I mostly did clothes throughout my school years and work years but now mostly do quilting. I have a number of sewing machines--Singer 626 (first one I bought when I got my first job), Singer 403 (my Mom's), a Phaff 1179, a Viking Quilt Designer, a Viking 936 Serger, and the baby, my Singer 221. I've only been quilting since 1999 but enjoy it. One of the favorite things about quilting is the fabric shopping!
    My wish list includes a longarm some day. My skill level with quilting has to improve before I can even think of that!
    I enjoy reading others comments on this site--so helpful with tips and seeing their work.

    Hello, and welcome from St. Louis! Sounds like you have lots of choices to work with when you sew! :lol: I tend to take a favorite out and set it up, and forget to use the others. I keep my Featherweight for workshops and the other for home sewing. Haven't sewn on my treadle for years. Am tempted to take it out and play! :lol:

    Welcome from So. Seattle area! And let me add, I am always so happy to see quilters from the PNW...I don't get out much except to go to work in Edmonds, so I don't get to meet or know my quilting neighbors.

    Hello from Minnesota. I'm about the same age as you and have two Singers, a 328 I got from my parents when I was in high school and just got a new one, a 1732 that's got a self-threader, serger attachment and is supposed to handle rather thick work. I guess I should say "we just got" since DH is the only one of us that's used it so far. He said it worked fine sewing through several thicknesses of heavy pack strapping. It's price was pretty cheap too.
