Welcome to the QB from SE Michigan. You came to the right place for vintage sewing machines. I have my share but only a few in comparison. I sew with them all the time. For me quilting and vintage machines go hand in hand. Read away and jump right in when you are ready. There is a lot of fun and knowledgeable folks here. We would love your input. Again welcome to the QB!

Welcome from Southern Indiana! Aren't sewing machines funny? They seem to enjoy congregating in one's home...I'm never sure how they manage it! I am housing about a dozen, and I don't even collect them!

Hello Rooster! I was given a modern machine a year or two ago, but prior to that I've mostly been sewing on a machine older than I am (I just turned 60) for the last 30 years.

I know people are really into their Singers (and I love my 301), but I really like the post-war Japanese machines, like my own Remington or Morse is another brand that often has some design sense to it where zig-zag is high tech.

I agree 20 machines is a great start ;-) I love the vintage ones too, hugs from the Sunset Coast!

Welcome to the Quilting Forum from Central Florida. I have a Singer 340 from 1955 and a Kenmore from 1972 and I love them both. The Singer is great for piecing and I use it a lot. I also have a Janome 15000 that i use most of the time for embroidery.
