My machines are on my husband's site...so here is a link to my sewing machines.  I don't know an easy way to post them here.

My baby: aka LA Blue Girl. (YES it is from the uh... "anime" and yes it's a very long story why I call my machine that >_>) I love her to death and like many other posters I am often saying "C'mon baby, you can do it!"  Grin

I gotta show mine!
I love her, even though she has only been with me since Friday.
She really needs a name.. as for now it's DC3050




Only thing is..it's so nice that I can't get my Mom away from it long anough to use it much.
And I just gave Mom my hardly used Brother, because she wanted to do fancy stitches.

Edit: I named mine "Fred". It's a girl ...but still..her name is "Fred"

I recently got the same machine.  I love it!  I thought it was a great machine for me to learn on and so far i've been right.  I named mine Emma.

Here's mine:



(Sorry about the rag-cat sitting on the machine, but this seems to be the only decent photo I have of my machine.)

It's an old Brother from the early 90's. I got it as a Christmas present when I was about 12 or so and I've have been using & abusing it ever since.
I have a love/hate relationship with my machine, some times when it's acting up and showing it's age I'd love to just defenestrate it and get a new one, but then when everything goes well I fall in love with it all over again. I do know the thing is in for some heavy duty maintenance soon, it's not been serviced since I got it (besides me adding some more oil now and then) the poor thing.

I have a Singer Featherweight sewing machine.  My great-aunt bought it originally and never used it, so she gave it to my Mom, who gave it to me.  Every time I take it in for a tune-up, the repairmen try to buy it from me.  I love it to pieces, and I wouldn't part with it for anything.



Here's a close-up of the art-deco faceplate.  Not all the Featherweights had these:


This machine is 60 years old.  It left the factory in September 1946. 

Did you know you could find out the birthday of Singer sewing machines?  Call 1-800-4-SINGER, and give them the serial number, and they can tell you when it left the factory.  They will give you an exact date, but I've read that the numbers were released in groups, so I don't really pay attention to the exact date.  But I think the month and year are accurate.

That Featherweight is in BEAUTIFUL condition.  I can only imagine what that thing would go for if you were selling.  May I be written into your will?  Wink

Random sewing machine question:  MyMendingsItch, Nymeria, diosaperdida, I notice your machines have the reverse button near the needle.  How convienent is that?  The newer ones seem to be doing it that way, but all the older ones that I have used have it on the right side, which seems way more convienent.  It seems like having it on the left would be a hassle/cumbersome...or maybe I'm just uncoordinated.

diosaperdida, how do you like that machine?  I'm not really keen on the newer computerized machines (gimme and old metal Singer, anyday!), but that one is growing on me the more I look at it.

Thanks!  It's funny that you say that -- my sewing machine is one of only 3 items with specific dispositions in my will.

Nope, sorry.  But the person who is getting it loves as you would... that's probably not much consulation though.
