    I think they are adorable together and it would be criminal to separate them.

    I think it's important to keep a "spare" machine. You never know when you might need an extra. We live 50 miles from one repairman and 100 miles from the other so if one needs service I still have (several) extras I can use until I get the serviced one back. It's saved my hide more than once!

    I agree about the 160 and being so darned cute. I bought one during Sandy (the storm) while at my son's home who had power....ordered from Amazon and thought it was a great price.....it arrived through the storm in just two days.
    Haven't used it as yet, just sit and look at it.......I am a snow bird and was thinking of leaving it in Florida so I won't have to cart my biggie along with me each year.
    I can't believe this.....it is selling on Amazon now for $400. more than what I paid for it.......she's a beauty......one of these days I will get around to making her hummmmmmm

    Tell me, owners of the 160.....is she really as great as she is pretty???????

    I have 3 machines, so I think it's a no-brainer for you to keep both!

    I think they both look great together. HSN does have wonderful prices on the machines.

    This one's a response to mjsylvstr - I can only vouch for myself, but yes, my 160 is wonderful! Haven't had one problem with it yet, and the ease of use factor is just fantastic. These are actually the first two machines I've ever owned that have a needle threader which works ALL the time!

    I'm also surprised at how much the prices have increased for this machine, especially on eBay, where I have seen them actually sold (by checking the completed auctions) for around $1,000. I imagine it's because they were only produced in 2012, for Singer's anniversary, and supposedly there were a limited number of them made. The money factor is tempting (because I paid under $400 for the machine when I bought it), but I'm not going to let her go!

    Consider yourself enabled. I have a high-end embroidery machine, a mid-range & an old Kenmore. The high-end embroidery machine stays in my sewing table; the mid-range goes to classes & the Kenmore is just a keeper because it is always reliable if the mid-range has to go to the hospital - which is where it is now to get her scissor mechanism replaced. I also have my mom's & grandmother's cabinet Kenmores just for nostalgia.

    Have you ever met a man who has only one saw, one hammer, one wrench... Keep them both. Invite someone over for a sewing party and share one.

    I think the "girls" need to stay together so they won't get lonely. LOL. I have Janome 4000, a Kenmore, which has similar embroidery stitches, etc., although they both need to go to the shop for a tune-up. My poor Janome has been quilting and sewing a lot the last 6 months and has an unusual noise that needs to get looked at. The Kenmore was free, however, I wish I had checked it out before we moved 2 years ago = it sews great, then it stops and the thread is all knotted, not sure what the problem is. Then I have a small Brother - also free that I have been using lately and thankfully it works pretty well, even when quilting. I will stick with the 3 machines, especially since I had 6 before we moved, but they went to good homes.
