How delightful to have a whole day dedicated to sewing machines! Some of the CT crew got in on the fun, scroll on to see their machines “in the wild”.

    I love the smoke from speed sewing. Wish I could get myself in the mood to sew at any speed. I have and old Singer and a Pfaff. Just recently purchased a simple Singer and a simple Brother so I can teach the young girls in our church to sew. Can’t trust them yet with my “good” Pfaff!

    My favorite sewing machine is. Rosie. She is an Elna. Quiler’s Dream mahine. I also have “baby Janis”‘a sweet Featherweight. When machines have special names they show their personalities.
