    The Herd

    I finally put my "collection" together. This is a built-in in my dining room.

    From top to bottom:
    My grandmother's 206k
    A Necchi-Alco I got at a pawn shop for $15. It is locked up and I don't care enough about it to try to fix it. She was actually too tall to put in the shelves, so I had to take her top off! However, now that I'm looking at them, I see that she would fit on the top shelf above 206.
    A $30 Atlas that I can't get the stitch length to change.
    From a Treddle machine that was trashed. I haven't even wiped her off, I just pulled her out of the garage and put her on the shelf. So I'll soon enough have one of those iron stands with a table top because everything else is ruined on it.

    Ok, file too big. Give me a minute to fix it!!

    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    They all look very happy there.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Thank you all. It really brightens these ugly, rainy days to see my beautiful machines out of the closet!
