I am a fabric hoarder, have a "herd" of approximately 30 mechanical sewing machines that I have revived, or brought back from the dead, or found for a steal of a deal, that I just couldn't pass up! I wanted to find out what was the very best sewing machine, get all of the accessories for it, then sell the rest of them. Unfortunately, I'm hooked on most of them, so it is only financial necessity that gets me in gear enough to sell one on eBay once in a while! LOL!
Neurofibromatosis 2 (NF2) is winning the battle keeping me in pain, and stopping me from doing much of anything anymore, so I am having to get serious about selling most of my sewing machines, while I can still walk a little, and am not tied to a wheelchair.
Sewing and sewing machines are my hobby, besides reading cookbooks. I wish I learned as much about machines & sewing as I know now, before I had kids, I would have enjoyed sewing even more, and would have shared it with more people. Discovering all of these incredible machines, and their accessories, and the sewing books available through the internet, I am absolutely amazed how much sewing information is available, that would have made sewing so much faster & easier, and even more enjoyable!
