    I always said this one is my favorite machine ever.....

    I have always sworn that the singer 15 is my favorite machine ever, so much so in fact I have two. Just love them. However, been sewing on my little green Lucy, I just bought last month,she is a little 99k and oh what a beauty. she is my favorite now. so My dh asked me if I sew on the 301's that i bought last year? gee, haven't really touched them,so I got one out and wow I can't stop sewing.! this is my favorite! Now, they are all my favorite!!!! Just love the vintage machines!

    That is funny, but I know exactly how you feel! I love best which ever machine I am using at the time I am using it! Right now I am using a Pfaff 360 for FM thread play work! I love that machine! I also love my 301's, FW's, 15's, all my vintage Pfaffs, my Davis Vertical Feeds, my Two Spools, my Japanese clones, my 66's, my Wheeler & Wilsons, my Wilcox and Gibbs - it doesn't matter! It is the same with my horses - whichever horse I am riding/playing with is my favorite at that moment in time! Too funny!

    Yep, you understand it. It is fun, so relaxing! I am so addicted. I have an old treadle too and I keep telling myself I don't want a featherweight. I think if the right one came my way I might be tempted and then I would have another favorite! A tangle web I tell ya.

    I can't pick a favorite. How can anyone pick a favorite? It's like asking me which of my kids is my favorite. They are all different and I love them for their individual uniqueness..... All the machines are unique in their own way, too. They are all my favorite!!

    Oh my, do I understand! I am just bonkers over FWs and then I sew on one of my others-----so many machines, so little time.

    My current favorite is the Pfaff 60 treadle straight stitch, its a lovely machine. So quiet and smooth running. Next year it might be the Singers 15-90,201,237 or 66-1. I also have Singers 221 and 301, all are lovely machines that sew great.
    For sewing folded corners on quilt blocks I prefer a straight stitch machine with the original foot(I'm doing those now).
    I've got several different brands of machines all of them have their quirks and different uses. I have a newer Viking with all the bells and whistles, I'd rather use one of the vintage machines. She sulks when I neglect her.

    I have had Helen (named after grandmother who bought it new, 201-3, then got the white Rotary and now I am hooked on vintage machines, but have NO room for any more, but I can look!! Addicting for sure. And reading the manual as I was printing if off for the 1911 White, it is amazing what they could do with these old machines.

    Isn't it all great, I never knew when I started this quilting thing where it would it lead.it is so much fun with all the machines. All are my favorites! Not everyone understands that! But we do!

    I don't have anymore room either for anymore machines, however maybe I could make room for a FW .

    Same here, I never knew when I took up quilting that it would lead me to this quilting board and all the knowledge and inspiration , then on to the "vintage machine" postings. I had never heard of a featherweight or seen one until I saw them here. Now I have 2 Featherweights, one 99 and then got a Singer redeye 66, and lastly have a 15-91. Two have the bentwood cases, one is in it's original cabinet, and the featherweights came in their cases. I also have my "fancier" computer Janome and embroidery machines, but I love, love, love sewing on the vintage ones. So I totally relate ...plan to keep on loving it all too.
    with a passion for quilting and vintage machines..Singers: 99, 4 featherweights, Redeye 66, Lotus 66, Phoenix 27, 15-91, 301A

    Love my Featherweight, really like the 99's but my go-to machine is my 401. I use that the most.
