It's time to let them go

 :( Well the big old fight has come to the final round and I am down on points... So I have decided it is time my collection moves on to people who may enjoy them whilst I am still able to do this.
This is just a tentative post and I know I have not been here for some time for obvious reasons but other than you good people I do not know who would appreciate them more.

I have a 221k, 2x 201k, 1 x 185k and my favourite 15k that need to find new loving homes. There are also tins of presser feet and various other related items that need to go also.

So if anyone is looking for a vintage machine that has been lovingly restored and is both mechanically and electrically in superb order then just drop me a PM.

Barny, I'm sorry to hear that you are not well. It's hard to come to the realization that we need to part with some of our beloved toys and tools, but I commend you for doing it on your terms. There is a bit of joy in knowing that they will continue to be loved and admired.

Take care.  :flower:

Thinking about you @Barnyard - take care.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Barny, I read this earlier and it brought a tear to my eye.  I hope you find good homes for all your babies and that they are loved as much as you have loved them.

Take good care of yourself.

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.

@Barnyard I am so sorry to hear this. Your machines have survived because of you and just as they are part of you, you will always be part of them. Take care!

Sorry to hear that Barney.  The machines are too far away for me, maybe just as well, but I'm sure you will find someone to love them as much as you do. :flower:
