Default If Your Machine Could Talk

What would she say?

Mine would say an owner that takes me along on new adventures (ie. sewing classes). We get lots of practice and make silly mistakes. She takes real good care on my bobbin case with a drop of oil and keeps my needles sharp. She doesn't ask me to fun at full speed with embroidery. In exchange, I try not to break threads or needles. She visits with me every day!

So what does your machine say? LOL!

Right now, mine would be complaining because it isn't getting any exercise. Her name is Caro and I think Caro is really lonesome these days and probably missing me. I miss her too but have to deal with others for now.

I'm glad mine can't talk - I'd go deaf listening to them all.

But I'm pretty sure my Juki would say "ha, ha, Mom loves me best!"

It would be really interesting if our machines could tell us the distance they have stitched.

Some machines must have quilted miles!

Mine would say "Mommy, you need to clean the bobbin case more often", and maybe a few other things.

Mine would say slow down and give me a day or two off, once in a while.

My three that are set up in the family room would sing a pretty song. Miss Elna takes care of all household sewing, the 301, AnnieRose, is the FMQ queen. The 15 clone with shamrocks stitches very straight so she's good at piecing. So they would sing a nice harmonious song. Right now AnnieRose is piecing because she's quieter. Maybe she's saying Nah, nah, nah, nah to the pretty black machine.
