  1. Michele T says:

    I only have one sewing machine and I’d love to have a spare… I think I’d go crazy if it broke down! We live about 4 hours away from the city to have it fixed or serviced.

  2. Sharon Ezzo says:

    I currently have 4 machines: Pfaff Embroidery, Janome Sewing, Viking/Husqvarna Serger, still have my 1st Kenmore sewing machine, which I use for travel, and now I’m waiting on a Janome Coverstitch which I just ordered last week… so excited it should be here Tuesday!! .

  3. Julia Jones says:

    I have 5, a sewing machine, a back up sewing machine, a serger, a old singer machine and a brand new embroidery machine Santa brought me 😉

  4. Tamar Pfeiffer says:

    I have three machines. One that was a wedding present from my grandma. One that is handed down from my husband’s grandma (my daughter uses that one). And a serger.

  5. Robyn Taylor says:

    I have two sewing machines. I had to have my Viking in for service and was in the middle of a major project that couldn’t be delayed, so I got the Brother quilting sewing machine at Costco. I don’t like it nearly as much, but it is a decent machine, and I decided to keep the Viking to sew with cotton thread only (since I have all the bobbins with cotton thread) and the Brother to sew with synthetic thread only, since my couple of bobbins have synth. thread on them right now.

  6. Amanda Cox says:

    I have 3 machines. A sewing/embroidery machine, serger, and coverstitch. I’m looking into industrial for bag making.

  7. Margaret Aldich says:

    I am a lover of machines, old and new, 9 sewing machine includes 3 very old ones.
    I just love my sergers, Judi and babylock Triumph.

  8. Donna E. says:

    I have 4 machines in the house: 1960-70 Singer that was my mom’s, my 1985 Kenmore 12 stitch, and a Brother sewing machine. As well as, a Brother 1034D serger.

  9. Megon Kraftenberg says:

    I have a simple sewing machine, a quality sewing machine, a serger, and I just got a coverstitch for Christmas.

  10. Joanne Roots-Rochon says:

    I have a Babylock, 2 Kenmores, a vintage Singer, 2 older Singer sergers, a Pfaff 3.0 coverstitch and a Brother Innovis embroidery machine.

  11. Amy Smith says:

    I downsized a little so now I have a vintage treadle Howe, vintage singer, Viking plain sewing machine, 2 Viking Embrodiery machines, Viking Mega quilter and a singer serger. My kids think I should downsize more.

  14. Leigh2e says:

    two. A Brother Pacesetter from 2003 that is the best machine. The thing has traveled the US and has never given me any trouble. And I just got a cheap brother serger so that I could start learning to serge. I’ll get a better one at some point, but this is perfect for now.

  15. Haley says:

    Very fortunate to have 3 machines. I have my very first basic machine from 2003, a serger my grandma gifted to me, and a coverstitch I got with insurance monies after a deer totaled my car. It took a while to build up my menagerie and I couldn’t be happier. Still considering a second serger so I can have a black thread and white thread ready to go.

  16. shelba says:

    Currently 7 machines, many of which are a little older and parts take time to receive when something just wears out. Each has a strength and a weakness, so they sew this or that type of project better than the others.

  17. Karen Kirkland says:

    1 standard brother sewing machine, and my new Xmas pressie brother overlocker which I’m itching to use once the household is back to normal routine after Xmas and new year!

  18. Carrie M. says:

    I have a Kenmore that I have had for 12 years. While it was In the shop recently, my sister gifted me a quilting machine. So I have two total.

  19. Melissa McNerney says:

    I have about 20 sewing machines at last count. Itnused to br closer to 50 machines but I downsized in January of 2019. I’m a VSM collector so more than half of my collection are older sewing machines. I have 2 Brother Sergere, 1 industrial serger, 1 Brother coverstitch, 2 Husqvarna Vikings and 1 Singer Embroidery, plus a semi-industrial walking foot machine.

  20. Mary Jane Goode says:

  30. Faith says:

    Just 2. They’re both Whites. I got the first one in 1976 (but declined the Bicentennial-themed option) and the second one just a few years ago. It’s even older, but I don’t know when it was made. It came, in its cabinet, from the local Habitat ReStore and set me back $15. I cleaned it up and got some new feet and belts, and it’s great.

  36. Meredith Bridges says:
