    Let's Dream about Machines

    If you could get THREE new machines, what would they be? Let's dream here, don't even think about the price tags, just share what you would want. One for piecing? One for embroidery? One for FMQ? One for garments? What's your dream?

    I'd just get one machine and convert half of my garage into a long arm studio. And I'd get an A-1 long arm.

    I'd love a long arm and a building to put it in.

    If you are talking dream, well a long arm system, with all the bells and whistles, extensive training available at a retreat in Hawaii, and the attic over the garage refinished with heat and air, for my sewing studio. And a featherweight born in 1947.

    This is my dream. It's a Brother Dream Weaver XE VM and does sewing, quilting and embroidery in one. It has a 7"x12" embroidery area. I actually like FMQ so I don't want a long arm.

    I would love a new Bernina (mine is over 20 years old)...a mid-arm machine for quilting...wouldn't have room for a long arm...but if I did, one of those would be nice too!

    I'd just like to have one large sewing studio where machine, ironing board, cutting board would be shared with LOTS of organized storage for my stash. Of course if it were large enough for a long arm, that would be wonderful. I can dream, can't I?

    I'm perfectly happy with my Bernina 440QE, but it is 6+years old, so maybe I would get whatever is newest in the Bernina line.

    I'm also very happy with my 26" Innova, but if I can dream then I would get another Innova (maybe 30"?) with lightning stitch and AutoPilot and some of the others bells and whistles that I didn't get the first time around.

    For vintage machines, I would like a black Singer 301 with the long bed.

    It's fun to dream. I don't need any of those things.

    I want that new quilting machine you sit to use Sweet Sixteen? If I can't have that, then I want the Brother Dream Weaver for quilting and the stand alone Dream Weaver for embroidery. I also want to win the lottery, and weigh 150 pounds...

    Dreaming...... There's a machine that does a stitch that looks like hand quilting called "Sashiko II" by Babylock. Does anyone have this machine? What do you think of it?
    #2 desire is Bernina 710 or 750/QE
    #3 desire is 8 thread serger

    Well, I'd get either the HQ SweetSixteen or the Babylock Tiara and use any leftover money to pay off hubby's medical bills. Heart transplants are kind of expensive.

    I'd love to have the Pfaff Creative Sensation. That thing is an embroiderers dream. I'd also like to have the Ellisimo Gold because it has the little camera over the embroidery bed. How cool is that? I'm loving my new Pfaff PowerQuilter P3 long arm, but I do wish I had an additional take up bar, or dead bar as they're sometimes called. I do not like having to adjust the bar as I roll the quilt.

    I'm quite fortunate to have 2 lovely sewing rooms, but as long as I'm dreaming, I'd like to have a whole big studio so I could combine everything into one gigantic room. I already have a place picked out in the back yard. I'm a dreamer at heart.

    I'm with you Tartan for my first pick. Second pick is a Brother Quattro, and I guess I own my third already - Pfaff Quilt Expression 4.0.

    Hmmm maybe an embroidery machine but then I wouldn't have all the fun I am having swapping and buying blocks from Robert.

    I would get the Baby Lock Ellissimo Gold, Janome Horizon, and the top of the line Innova. Of course I would also need a larger sewing room in which to display it all. My sewing room would have large windows and French doors overlooking a beautiful garden. It would include oak sewing cabinets and a large cutting table. Thanks for the dream.

    In a perfect world I would have a 30 needle embroidery machine that could do about 48 inches x48inches and then I could do tapestries.

    The only way I'll drop 10 pounds is to go shopping in England. - Maxine-
