No problem, just move to Hong Kong over the summer.  0_0
Seriously, I'm doing a 'sew your own clothes' summer camp at school. Would be a shame to let all those resources we have there laying dormant during the break.

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Thank you everbody for the welcome  :toast:

B15erk, here is my Singer 338K (Isabella) waving at the beauty in your profile picture  :D


I'm more than happy to post projects, is there any specific area, or should I do that in project related threads?

Manuela I have quite a few Singers, and they are without doubt excellent sewing machines.  I'm talking here about the pre-computerised ones of course. ;)  I have a Singer 328k which is very similar to the one in your pic.

The 611g was the last one I bought, and I'm still fascinated by her!

Meet my little champ Bella a Singer 222K, she is quilting 4 yards of perforated denim onto 4 yards of lace here....

Bella, my cute little Featherweight, lives now in Thailand and quilts like a champ

My boss thought she does me a favour when she gave me a computerised Bernina for personal use at work. I just can't get on with that machine, give me mechanical one - preferably a vintage Singer - any time.
I still have to see buttonholes that are as beautiful or better than the ones my Singer buttonholers makes...

I love your little 222k!  It's one I haven't got, but would dearly love.  I have machine envy!!

I have a computerised machine, a Pfaff 1475cd from new (so 30+ yrs old).  The rest of my machines are oldies, rescues, donations or bargains, and I love them.
