    how many machines can one persone have..or two people in my case, since dh now sews with me.
    this is a kenmore model 1731 that he could not resist.
    look at all the thread.. must be a few hundred and bobbins galore ! also buttons and manuels and attachments.. I love the cabinet.. more like a desk with both ends flipping open for space.. my dining room now looks like a sweat shop.. old singers and quilts everywhere !!!

    Well, I think it's a lovely machine! and IMHO, you can never have too many machines. <- Says the girl who just bought her 8th, and has her eye on a 9th which will be the final one for now.

    You can never have too many--says the lady with about 15 Featherweights and about a dozen others. Yes, I am a collector and they are all in excellent working order.

    Six here if you count the serger. I like the 'sweat shop' remark. Oh, and an empty cabinet that was 'only a $1'. Like they don't take up space if they don't cost much. Still a couple more I'd like if they jump'd into my car.
