    Great job on the stash management - I hardly noticed the fabric for all the beautiful machines. And I was worried about buying a second Bernina! Thanks for sharing.

    I am in awe of your courage to do this... I have downsized bit of my stash , but never have had the strenght to make the "sweeping" changes that you have. My hats off to you.
    By the way all those vintage machines are just wonderful.

    Wow! Those are great! I love my daughter, but I will be glad when she gets settled in her job and gets her own apartment. Then...I can display my machines. Oh, and I'm up for a play date. LOL

    Thanks for sharing your collection with us. It's amazing that they all work except one. Do you use them on a regular basis? It would be fun to be in a room of vintage machines that several people were operating at once. Too bad we all don't live closer and then we could play and learn from you how to use all the attachments. I have a treadle, a fw and a hand crank besides newer machines.

    Wow! Each "baby" is beautiful in it's own right and I can see why you started collecting. I just found a circa 1956 Featherweight at a local antique fair and was sooooooo excited to find it worked and had many spare bobbins, 3 extra feet and the original manual. Don't know if I got a deal or not, but I was happy. I will use it for piecing. Thanks for sharing.

    Love that red baby on the top shelf of Featherweights! I can tell you were in heaven all week rearranging things!

    I like to make lists. I also like to leave them laying on my sewing table and then guess what's on the list while at the fabric store. Fun game.

    OOOOOO!!! I love your collection!! I wish I had all the room you have. Mine are stashed under shelves and under my quilt frame and behind my work table. I only have a few out in plain sight. My DH doesn't really want them all over the house, so I have to kinda restrict them to the sewing room. Yours look great!!

    I should show this to my family. They have fits that I have two sergers and two Viking sewing mchines. One serger and one Viking were given to me. They all have different features and I couldn't llet any of them go.

    They look so pretty, I like the way you have them displayed. Maybe I will borrow the idea.
