So, I decided early on that there was no way I was buying another SM. One of mine (seven) would surely fit into a carry-on bag for the flight to NoCal.

My new-to-me BL Xscape should be here Tuesday.

'Nuff said.

They are all different, with different personalities, aren't they?
Sort of like children or pets.

Um, wouldn't it have been easier to buy another carry on bag that is a tiny bit larger and still is the approved size? I saw some large ones when we went to Hawaii in May. Some carry on sizes are much smaller than others.

Listen. Three years ago I owned two sewing machines: an older, inexpensive Brother mechanical and a newer Janome DC. Both worked just fine. Still do. Then the embroidery bug bit. Then the serger lust started. And I really, truly did read posts about folks having four or eight machines and wondered, "What on earth for?" I simply couldn't imagine it. I mean, why?

I'm now humbled. And I still read the ads...

Hahaha! Before I joined PR I had 1 mechanical sewing machine. Now I have 2 fabulous computerized machines, 2 vintage mechanicals, 2 sergers, a coverstitch, and a Featherweight. And I still have a wandering eye!

I definitely caught my SMAD from PR, but I did have quite a fabric stash and handbag collection before that, so the predisposition was there.

Honestly, the Baby Lock Quest Plus I bought with the help of PR is plenty of machine for me. Then I got Bernina-curious, and the rest is SMAD history (4 vintage and 4 computerized Berninas, a few FWs, down to one Pfaff now...). But I enjoy the Berninas so much, they really add to my enjoyment in sewing. The 1030, 630, and 820 are my favorites. I'd love to have those 3 and the Quest Plus set up all the time. The Quest Plus is my Pfaff substitute. Seems totally Pfaffy to me, stitches and IDT so similar to the 7510 I had, only with the knee lift I'm hooked on.

Oh LearnToSew you will get it eventually. There is always another sewing machine to buy. It is so handy to have one threaded with topstitching thread and the other for the sewing and then there is the serger.......

We will get you sooner or later
