Laura thought we should name our machines. After all, they are just like family. Each one has it's own personality, it's own unique purr when it sews. I use my 221 for most of my sewing. I own an Elna fancy smancy machine and I use it for lots of fancy work, but when I am piecing quilts or sewing curtains, etc, I use "Nellie Belle." Why did I name her Nellie Belle? That was my grandma's name. Laura said we should use our grandma's names. Liz has one she affectionately calls Marcie Mae after MY mom.
This is Sydney's "white" Featherweight. Some people call it a "green" featherweight as it has a greenish tinge (some have a taupe tinge). Mr. Scottie Dog found this for Sydney when she was born. She's four now and pretty soon will begin to learn to sew on it. She pretends to sew. Sydney's machine is named BrendaLou after HER grandma.
Have YOU named your sewing machine? After all, she can be you best friend. She patiently waits for you to find time for her, she lights up when you want to spend time with her. She keeps on purring even when you swear at her (the problem is most often with YOU, not HER!). Leave me a comment and tell me what you have named your sewing machine. On Sunday night I'll randomly pick a winner for a homemade giveaway!
