My machines, my babies....


All my life, I've been an avid collector. As a kid, I collected dolls, stickers even comic books once.

Since I've been sewing though, my collecting habit has focused itself on vintage sewing machines. It's a small collection, but it's one I cherish immensely.

I've been pretty lucky to get all these machines at great prices. Most of them came from yard sales. The most expensive one cost me $ 45, which is pretty good for a vintage sewing machine. At least where I'm from.

Now that spring has arrived, and that summer is fast on it's way, I can't wait to hit up the yard sales again. I wonder what I'll stumble upon this year! Who knows, this year might be the one where I can find an inexpensive Singer Featherweight. I know, I know, dream on Diane...
