I have about 7 machines now and if I could keep only one, it would break my heart, but i would keep only the Bernina 180. Its the most versatile machine I own. I sincerely hope I never to make that decision because I don't know how I would let my mom's 301, the FW's and grandma's treadle go.

Hydra - off - Mop.... that means you never wash your hair?

I currently have four machines. Only two are mine. I have a friend who constantly brings me "machine rejects" that she finds wherever! I look them over, package them up, and donate them. She'll occasionally ask me if I use them, but I always tell her I'm partial to my machines. I'd find a way to keep both of mine!

Why choose? I'd better go put them all in the car, just in case I have to get away fast.

I have 4 machines. One will go to a daughter since I have finally learned how to use the free motion feature of my Pfaff. The other two are vintage Singers. One a featherweight and the other a treadle that just needs a new belt.

Choosing just one would be difficult because they each serve different purposes. I will answer the question after I learn how to use the treadle.

I suppose it would be the Janome 6500P as it has all the different stitches, although I really only use straight and blanket stitch, and once in a while a zig zag. But my Janome 1600 is my quilting machine....and I have an older model Janome that I still love and my Singer 99K. On second thought I don't want to even think about giving up any of them...LOL

Of my 4, I would probably grab the 1972 Sears Kenmore. My Pfaff 2044 is tired and showing some quirks and once the motherboard goes it's toast, I've never really bonded with the Singer 15-91, my 201-1 is great, the bobbin winder on the Sears is awesome, the machine has done everything I've asked.

Macy baby, you could open a museum or shop! Wow! How many machines is that? Do you cycle through using them to keep them in working order?
