    Wink Hubby got me 3 new (old) sewing machines for my b-day!

    My birthday is tomorrow and hubby came home with 3 new (old) sewing machines for me! I'll take pictures and post them tomorrow! Here's what they are:

    A Montgomery Ward in a Samsonite case with a book and attachments

    A Kenmore in a case With a book and attachments

    A Standard Deluxe in a case

    I am so spoiled I think we have like 30 machines now and only 4 are Newer the rest are vintage machines!

    My hubby loves me so much and supports my sewing machine hoarding habit! hee hee
    I'm excited in case you couldn't tell! hahahahaha
    Sew, sew, it's the threads that keep love together :>} I love sunbonnet sue,old-fashioned things like 1950's or older housewife things, and like hankies,tea towels and aprons . Thanks to some lovely members on here I now have lots of aprons in my collection !!

    You can never have enough sewing machines. I'm getting there. I have three that are in cabinets (old) and three others. I really need to update and get a new one. You got some great gifts for your birthday!

    Oh, I'm so excited for you. My hubby encourages me to get the sewing items I see at garage, estate, and auction sales but he doesn't just go out and get any for me. You're pretty spoiled..... but I'm sure, worth it, right? I can hardly wait to see your new jems.

    These are such an awesome gift! What fun to restore!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Is the Standard a 3/4 machine, it looks smaller? Very nice collections, love the vintage machines!

    Right now they are in the bedroom on a shelf above the closet, in every corner of all the other rooms and also at our upholstery shop! he hee When we get a chance we're building living quarters in part of our shop building and when we get to it and get it like we want they will be on shelves on one big wall in our living room for me to look at and rub and polish! Hubby will get them all in running condition , which most are and oiled for me, he said. hee hee
