  230. I have an old Bernina sold by a school Home Ec department. The thing I love most about it is how dependable it is!

  231. When my decades old Viking began to sew all by itself while I was on the other side of the room, it was time for a new machine. (By the way, it began to smoke after I unplugged it.) I have had my Janome 3160 QDC for about 4 years now, and I am totally happy with it. My sewing began in Jr. High on a Singer. How many of us started that way?

  232. I don’t have instagram, facebook or twitter–does that mean I can’t enter? I have and old Kenmore, a Singer featherweight and a brand new Bernina 330 and I love them all! Wish I could sew on them all at once (-:

  249. I sew on a Brother sewing machine. I am new at quilting and have enjoyed the journey of learning.

  250. niomi- i do use the roundbrush but what gives the ends that &q;oiufltp" look is the velcro rollers. Since you roll your hair into them, they help create that shape at the ends :)glad you like the new photo format 🙂 I am also going to work on setting up a tripod and might get a remote for my camera too 🙂 My goal has always been to improve the quality of the photos…just gotta figure it all out 🙂

  251. I started on a treadle Singer, learned hand stitching by sitting under the quilt to return the needle to the topside. I didn’t return for 50 years. Now I graduated last year to a Husqvarna Viking. I sew everyday and I love to give my quilts away.

  252. I have a pretty basic Singer that works great, but I would love to get a machine that has more features for quilting.

  253. I sew on a Janome xl602 and what I love most is that it’s reliable, the machine I had before was a nightmare.
