When that happens, I call it a nightmare! I really don't like organizing, probably why I've put it off for so long. I've been hanging around on the "missions organization" subforum and have been trying to do a bit every day. And it's helping me to get more into the habit of organizing my stuff. Some day I may even tackle my clothes closet!

ok, I know this is slightly off topic ...but please tell me I am not the only one who 'sees' a vintage machine here.

and Cathy...what you do makes 10,000 piece jigsaw puzzles look like child's play.

Looks like quite the undertaking getting them all sorted out and organized. You have a truly amazing collection Cathy.

It will be an amazing collection once it's sorted. Right now it's more a collection of stuff.

How long have you been a collector of vintage? Watching your progression of getting organized has been one of the most interesting to follow. Show DH one of your earliest photos. He looked at me and said WOW multiple times. I did a few other things and he continued looking for quite awhile. He'd say; his grandmas had this one or that one or similar to etc. He was mesmerized. Then He says; 'God Bless your husband"!

I am so impressed and a little envious. I love sorting and organizing, plus I love those old attachments.

It must be something with our name. My name is Cathy too! I too have a large selection of feet for different machines.
My best machine is the 221. I love this machine. My selection of feet is not quite like yours, but close.

This all started when I got interested in the BOYE display case, and decided to collect one machine for each item in the case (I'm still missing one - WW#8). And after getting a few and learning about the attachments, I got fascinated by the differences between them - I also wanted one set of attachments for each machine I have. It's rare to find a set with everything in it, so often I'd end up with 2-3 boxes to get a complete set. And I also started collecting different sets that I found.

I've pretty much moved from the "acquiring" stage of my collecting, and now I'm on to the organizing and codifying stage. I'm working on documenting the differences and when I get it complete (which is going to take years) it will be available on the Victorian Sweat Shop site. BTW - that is not my site, just where I've decided to put information.

I would like to acquire a set of attachments for my FW, but the ones I've seen on auction sites seem to be beyond my budget -- since I've had a lot of doctor bills, and facing possible back surgery for the second time, I have some pretty slim play areas in my budget. I'm not complaining, though, I'm just being realistic, and I know there are millions of people who are having it much more difficult than I am!

Cathy, your collection of machines and attachments is amazing -- and your machine shed -- they're all marvelous!

I admire the organization you've achieved to date with your machines. I'm just not managing to do much -- my back problems have really put a kink in my activities and I sometimes feel like I'm pretty lazy, then I try to do something I love to do and which, subconsciously I know will sideline me for a few days -- I will learn, maybe someday! LOL!
