Last Sunday, my hubby and I bought a Vintage Singer Sewing Machine Model 15-91.  Include all accessories and cabinet.  The pics are taken before we cleaned up the machine.  After we oiled and cleaned it, the machine works great, but I still need to learn how to control the foot pedal better.  So far I love it!

Here are a few of my machines... I have too many and I keep getting more!

First, my newest machine. An industrial Consew 104 chainstitch embroidery machine


Next, a 50's or 60's  Universal sewing machine that a friend found at a garage sale and gave me. Works great!



And here's my cute little Baby Lock serger. It's really small but is a real workhorse. I think this one is from the 80's.

I got this 3 years ago as a christmas gift, and didn't think I'd ever use it. I tryed to take it back, and couldn't so I learned how to sew.


OMG. I have this exact same machine! Plus, I am soon to be the proud owner of my very first SERGER!

Here's my collection so far...

My "main" machine, a Singer 500c my hubby bought almost 3 years ago for me


This is the serger I got last year, a Singer Ultralock


This is the old Singer the hubby found in an apartment he was trashing out last spring-ish.  I had the date written down, but can't find it now.  It's my "someday" project.  I'll need to get several parts for it, and do a LOT of cleaning on it.  But...it may be worth it.  I really haven't looked too closely at it yet.  I use the cabinet to set my other machines on when in use.


This is the new baby.  It's a Singer 328k that I got off Ebay from a nice lady in the next city.  She let me pick it up, so I had decided to try and win it.  It's in great condition, nothing missing except the manual.  The case is n't even cracked, lol.  And it runs like a dream through canvas, which is what I wanted...it's the new corset machine.  I got tired of changing the tension on my 500c everytime I wanted to sew something lighter than 6 layers of canvas/duck/ect.

Well, I don't have a sewing machine currently, but I'm wishing for a sewing machine for Christmas and I wanted an opinion or two about this baby.

It's a Kenmore, and I've heard from various websites that Singers aren't as good as they used to be.

Here are the machines I have:

Brother pe-150 embroider machine:


Brother es-2000:


Singer 4562:


I also have a white s34 speedylock and a 1950's sew gem. I will upload pics of these later. The 1950's sew gem, I got for free and it still works.
I could have gotten a 192? singer with table a couple months ago, but I didn't have the money. Cry

I've had my machine since I was 13 or so. I still think it's the most beautiful thing I've ever gotten to work with.



Bernina 730 Record, and completely indestructible. No light plastics, no stupid computerisation, just a mechanical machine that has never failed me.

PLUS, it's got a knee switch, which I love far more than you could ever believe. If I ever got a new machine, I'd want one with the knee switch.

Now, I just need to complete the presser foot collection. Any hints for getting accessories for machines that are 43 years old?
