    Fantastic collection and to think that all, but one works! If I only lived closer.......ahh, what a wonderful time we could have except for my drooling!

    I am drooling and trying to type at the same time. What a lovely collection of toys you have. They look beautiful. Congrats.

    You may not want to answer this, but what is the estimated value of your machine collection? I counted over 30 machines.

    I really don't know the actual value-----I have kept track of what I paid----but have had some really good luck in finding them at low cost------the featherweights, especially the red one, were the most expensive......Actually, I have 46 vintage machines all together......I didn't get them all in a picture.....they are all over my condo----every side table, practically, is a sewing machine cabinet....I am a widow and retired and my children live in Des Moines and Wichita so this is what I do for excitement in my life......and the kids support me in it and my quilting.....I am so blessed to have their support and am having great fun!
    this is how

    I'm going to print this off so my kids will quit fussing at me! I ONLY have 15....I told my DDIL that I had just gotten another (a CH-15) and she wanted to know where I was going to put it! Silly girl, everyone knows that's what floor space, the hearth, the book cases and table tops are for! I figure I can buy at least ten more before I run out of room...LOL and enjoying my "stable"!

    Wow, I thought I had a lot of machines. In all fairness some of mine are in cabinets and are treadles. Then again some aren't. Wonderful collection. Enjoyed looking at yours.

    You live in a condo? No attached converted 3 car garage?
    Great job with the displays.

    Beautiful displays, thank you for sharing.
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye
