Do You Name Your Sewing Machine??

Wednesday, May 12, 2010
Do you name your sewing machine?  I do!   Sometimes I name them after the person I got them from, sometimes the place.  I currently am sewing on "Chuckee"--I got him from a man named Chuck.  I also have "LouAnn" and "Becka" and "Clara".  There is a machine named "Red Cloud".   I have a Red Eye treadle in my living room called "Topeka".  "Tom Cruise" is downstairs.

Do I have a favorite?  Not really, I tend to rotate them around to be used.  "LouAnn" is a speed demon, "Chuckee" is dependable.  "Becka" is a sentimental favorite, "Red Cloud" gets petted as I wonder what all she's sewn.  All these machines are older than I am.  I wonder where they've been in their, their owners.  Don't you wish they could talk??

Absolutely they all deserve a name!! I think that any piece of technology that a person uses as much as we use out machines should have a name!

I had Bubba the Brother and when he got the boot, I got JJ the Janome. Her name is short for Jill's Janome and yes, she is female. A lot less tempermental than Bubba, too! lol

I named my longarm after my Granddad, Willie. I always look forward to playing with Willie!
