Is there such a thing as "too many machines"??

What a GREAT exercise! Thanks to everyone who wrote in. It was great fun seeing the kinds of machines that everyone has;  it was actually great to see that there are many of us out there who have multiple (to say the least) machines.

The truth as far as my count is concerned??  I only have 9!! Believe me, if you read some of the responses, you'll see that my total is small in comparison.

Anyway, who wins?
Can you believe we have a TIE???

The winning number is 17!!  Personally I have room for only two up at a time. I don't know how you could have more than that set up; I really wish I could.

So, the winners are QUILTFOOL and JO.

Would you please send me your addresses so I can send you out a couple of fqs!  I mean, it's the least I can do. 

In the meantime, I'm heading off for Wisconsin early tomorrow for some serious retreat time with my dear friends there.  We are going to the quilt show in Chicago on Saturday.  So I will probably be posting from Debbie's or Pat's showing their fabulous creations, as always.

Love to you all,


  1. Darn...I will be at the shop on Saturday. If you get done early enough or go late enough stop by Quilter's Destination in Arlington Heights. I'd love tosay Hi.

  2. I actually know people who have more machines than that! LOL

  3. I have three of my four set up all the time, but I usually only use two of them.
    Congrats to the winners.
    How many does Bonnie have now?

  4. I didn't see the original post to enter , but I only have 3 machines: my Bernina 150 Quilter's Edition, my 1955 Singer Featherweight, and my Singer treadle circa 1911. I use them all, but my Bernina is set up in my sewing table, so it gets used the most.

  5. Thank you Randy! Wonderful post, it was fun to read about everyone's machines
