    My neighbor heard that I was interested in old sewing machines. She said her aunt had one did not know what kind. Later she called and said that it was "just an old singer table top model". I told her to find out more, I'm hoping it is an old feather weight and she doesn't want too much. My husband said you have 2 sewing machines now why do you need another one? Bless his heart he just doesn't understand.

    LOL..had to laugh..when we moved to our Condo..my hubby(who has always supported my quilting) helped the day the sewing room was being loaded..he said you have enough fabric to make 50 quilts and why do you have 3 sewing machines..I said there are 6 and that's my stash !!! The look on his face was priceless !!

    They just don't get it. But most of them have more than one tool or golf club or camera or whatever. Hope it's a FW.

    Men are like boys; you have to get on thier level. I tell mine why do you need another gun each year; you can only shoot one at a time. He shuts up and realizes he's fighting a losing battle.

    Tell him it's for the same reason that he has more than one wrench or more than one screwdriver. They all do different things and each works best to do its own thing.....

    I have 3 machines right now... And I used that argument about the right tool... I can't tell you how many times my husband has quoted..."See how well the job goes when you have the right tools?"

    Man - I love throwing that back at him. :)

    That's what I was going to say. Tell him to just think of it as another tool, or whatever it is that he 'collects'!

    Best thing to do is not have a husband. I have a live in boyfriend for 28yrs. No strings attached. We both do what ever we want. So I have 11+ sewing machines.

    I hope it is a featherweight too. Please let us know and post pics. As for Husbands---thanks to everyone for the responses---I never would have thought of some of them, but they are so very true. Mine is golf clubs, and video games.
    I especially like the "right tool" Thanks ladies. Hey Jim, you are different, you are one of us remember?
