Picture of Vintage Sewing Machines/Or My house the Museum

Last week I shared pictures of the projects everyone brought.  Today I will show you how I set up my sewing room and living room in anticipation of talking about my machines.  I will share information about the machines in several posts, this is just an overview.
The first pictures are of my sewing room.

Counting my two toy sewing machines and one electric not shown, I have 16 sewing machines.  I'll give more information about the machines in later posts.

How many sewing machines do you have?

I would be very scared if I counted. 301s are my favorite and I have, um, some. I just missed a pink Brother on ebay that I thought was very cool.

Wow, I think that I counted about 12 in your photos. I have a few, a new Janome,(I use this one exclusively.) an old White treadle, an old Singer treadle, and a child's Singer Sew Handy.

I have well over 60 machines. I really need to downsize, so that I can get to more of my machines, and use more of them. I only sew on a few of them. I still love your Featherweight table. Sew pretty!

LOL! I have three machines; my original Kenmore, my Janome, and a Bernina. But considering I live fulltime in an RV, three is pretty extraordinary! I wouldn't say museum...well, maybe a highly functioning museum?! Hahaha! They're beautiful machines! :)

Look at all those machines! I had only one over 30 years, and suddenly added two more vintage machines to my collection last year. I have no idea where I'd put any more!

Oh what beauties, that first one with all it's decals, gorgeous! So glad I visited your blog and got some sewing machine eye candy:)
