    I have an old New Home that I use, a Brother ce4000, a Featherweight, a cheapy Singer, a White, and a MegaQuilter. It just depend on what's threaded with what color and what I want to do. The New Home only does straight and zigzag, the MQ and FW only straight.

    I piece with my Elna Quilter's Dream and do straight line quilting with it. If I am doing free motion quilting I use my Pfaff Grand Quilter. Sherry

    I have loved my Pfaff 7550 for many years. Recently tho, I saw a demo of the Husqvarna/Viking Sapphire. I was very very impressed and am enamored of it. To bad it's soooo expensive.!

    I piece with my Brother CS6000i. I quilt with my Singer Curvy because once I got the walking foot finally on, I decided I am never taking it off.

    I have a Juki98Q that I just love. It will sew through just about anything you put under it.

    I do most of my piecing on my Janome Gem Platinum. I use it mostly because I do a lot of piecing while we are on the road in the motorhome. But, unless I am in a hurry, I quilt on my Pfaff Creative Vision. It is much larger and has the built in even feed foot. Also, I have lots of patterns stored on the computer to use for quilting.

    I've been using a Viking Rose machine since 1996. It was my retirement gift from my sister. I have a singer machine that is probably older than me @66 & it works fine for general sewing.

    I use my Pfaff 7570 My Pfaff 2056, and for away from home classes I use my little Pfaff Hobbymatic 947. I used to use my Pfaff 1229 alot but traded it to my sister for a laptop. and because she did not have a machine that had IDT I also have a Pfaff coverlock 4862 that I am starting to use.

    I piece on the Singer I learned to sew on at the age of 7 yrs. Use an old Nelco Zig-Zag for quilting. Still do a lot of quilting by hand. Anxious to get Grandmother's Singer Treadle cleaned up. Hope I can work it.
