    Ohhhh, black witches! I like that.

    I actually need to get a move on with the quilting. If I clear a shelf of fabric.... I can have more room for a machine.

    Collector- too bad I had to quit from lack of space and MONEY. 6 sewing machines and two sergers are enough for our little place with all HD collections (guns)

    I call mine "The Collection" I want to be able to use each machine in rotation for the specialness of each one. I have well over 30 but only about 20 will remain in "The Collection" and of those only 8 -10 will be in the house. The others will be out in the studio. The rest will be rehomed.

    I am in control. NO insanity here.

    I consider my rescues. That way I get away with bringing home another . . . rescue.

    Laughing is, and will always be, the best form of therapy!

    When you love and laugh abundantly, you live a beautiful life!

    If you're too busy to laugh.....you're too busy!

    Mine is my herd. Thinning the herd? Shudders at the thought.
    Never met a scrap of fabric or vintage sewing machine I didn't like!
    Many a lost and lonely vintage machine has found a home with me, 26 and------ uh oh lost count, who is counting anyway!

    I like a "chorus of Singers". For other VSMs, how about a "gather"?

    Power Tools - I told DH they are my power tools that help make quilts and projects and provide therapy. About two years ago, I found a great treadle to put in my sewing room. DH immediately went to work on getting a belt for it so I could use it. By the time the belt came, I had cleaned the cabinet and set it up as a space to put my precuts and pretties. When DH said, "I thought you were going to sew on it???!!!" I replied, "And I thought you were going to use the Craftsman Router that is still in the unopened box for the last 36 years!" Nothing more to be said...

    around here, it's an "ambition" of machines. (or maybe an "over ambition...")

    Personally I think she's just jealous I have the time to commit. I bet someday she joins in.

    Well, there are 2 groups. The first, most desirable machines are all part of my, "Collection." The second group I call, "Davey Jones Locker," as in boat anchors.
