    Thank you! I have the five showing plus two antique portables out on shelves for display (other side of room but not showing in pic). I also have two treadle machines which I'm going to have to sell as I have no room for them. I use all five of my machines and are able to try many different techniques and projects!

    Thanks, Rose! It feels so good to finally be able to sew again! I mentioned to hubby that you were expecting him in PA soon but he said something about his hamster needing shampooing?

I also have a serger which is great for embellishment, doing edges on napkins etc. I enjoy my embellisher machine for making my own felt for flowers, appliques on sweatshirts etc. I enjoy a variety of sewing projects so a straight stitch machine wouldn't be enough for my hobby.
    Nice room and collection of machines! I wish that HV hadn't stopped making the Mega Quilter, its fabulous for piecing and quilting. I work for HViking and get to use a variety of machines at the store.

    Thank you! I bought the thread racks at our local quilting store. I honestly can't remember what I paid as it's been a few years now. They are made of maple so very hard and durable. I really like them as they lay so flat against the wall and hold a lot of thread.

    Thanks so much! My husband designed the cutting table on his computer using a program called Visio. He did the same when trying to figure out how to make drawers that would fit. We also sat the machines on the floor to see how much room we could use for the countertops. Basically, lots of measuring!
