    Oh I just love all of these. Currently I wish my machine would give me a couple suggestions for how to quilt the quilts I'm working on. With this quilt you could do this this or that. With that other quilt you could...

    i hate changing thread so wish you could have all your thread somehow connected in the bobbin and up top so whenever you wanted a different color you just press a button and it sews in that color..and a stop you are doing something stupid flashing light and siren to prevent you sewing things together wrong then having to reverse sew!

    I think this could be possible if you switched to the treadle machine! :D

    I want my machine to be able to sew faster so I can complete all the quilts that I have dreamed of making!

    I wish my machine would talk to me....like Kitt talks to Michael in Knightrider. I imagine it would have a slightly camp voice and be quite sarcastic, but in a friendly, teasing way.

    I wish my machine would produce a good looking man to massage my shoulders when they hurt from being hunched over my machine too long.

    Bobbin never runs out of thred.
    Never have to change the needle.

    I wish it had a button to push to fix dinner or lunch so DH would be happy and "quiet" :wink:

    I wish it had an "undo" button also and a warning alert when I'm about to do something very stupid. :roll:

    If mine told me when I was doing something stupid it would be a strobe light or a constant noise. (hopefully LOL)

    I wish my machine would magically turn into a "long arm" and automatically quilt all of the tops I made..........otherwise I'm pretty happy with mine. It's an antique (belonged to my mom) and makes me think of her every time I use it.......(although I have to agree making meals would be real bonus)

    i wish my machine would do my laundry.
    press everything as i go.
    make all the little pieces fit.
    make all the colors match.
    make there be enough yardage for the project.

    I wish it would warn me when the pieces are NOT right-sides-together.
    I wish it had a thread-removal feature so I wouldn't have to use the seam ripper.
    I wish it would hand-stitch the binding on, mitered corners and all.
    I wish it would curse so I don't have to.

    Magically keep the cats off of whatever I am attempting to work on at the moment.

    Turn on the television so that I do not miss Law and Order.

    Audition my fabric so I do not have to think about what looks good next to what else.
