Sewing machines multiply like rabbits!
I just won another sewing machine on eBay. I wonder how much longer before the floor falls in??
For years (decades) I’ve had a White 1710 (big metal workhorse, named Fred) and a Janome MyLock 534D serger (of course, Mrs. Fred). But in the last month I somehow have bought:
1. A 1908 New Home treadle (named Ralph) and cabinet from the Goodwill
2. A Singer 9110 (1990s-era workhorse to supplement the White), yet to be named, also from said Goodwill
3. A Singer Slant-o-matic Rocketeer today on eBay (for no other reason than it looks like the Starship Enterprise, but you KNOW I’ll love it like the Dickens and use it all the time too, and to be named Spock). Somehow no one else was watching and I got it for a song.
My hubby is a patient man, but a lot of it is that I also say nothing to him about the 2 tons of cured hardwood in his workshop that we’ve moved across North America TWICE. We’re loons, yes?
So, dear Gatherers, make me feel better – how many machines do YOU have?
