Sew Mama Sew Blog meme

I'm an avid blog reader as some of you know. Blogging for myself isn't so popular for me lately. But I'm trying.

I was reading one of my favorite blogs Sew Mama Sew. Very inspirational. Even though my sewing has been on the backburner for some time I'm always pleased to read about sewing.

Here's a meme from the sew mama sew blog they posted and I decided to try. I need some type of jump start to blogging again. LOL!

What brand and model do you have?

Singer Anniversary addition (don't ask what anniversary)

How long have you had it?

I believe I purchased it in 1989.

How much does that machine cost (approximately)?

Around $400 to $500.

What types of things do you sew (i.e. quilting, clothing, handbags, home dec projects, etc.)?


How much do you sew?

Not as much as I would like to. I haven't sewn in months. I'm trying to find some sewing mojo.

How much wear and tear does the machine get?

Not much! LOL! I rarely sew.

Do you like/love/hate your machine? Are you ambivalent? Passionate? Does she have a name?

My sewing machine doesn't have a name. I'm not crazy about it. But it works.

What features does your machine have that work well for you?

None offhand. It's just an O.K machine.

Is there anything that drives you nuts about your machine?

The bunching of the thread under the presser foot.

Do you have a great story to share about your machine (i.e., Found it under the Christmas tree?
Dropped it on the kitchen floor? Sewed your fingernail to your zipper?, Got it from your Great Grandma?, etc.!)? We want to hear it!

Nope none at all. I guess if I used it more it would be different.

Would you recommend the machine to others? Why?

No, I don't think it's a great machine. It's a bit mediocre in my opinion.

What factors do you think are important to consider when looking for a new machine?

Comfort in using the machine and good features.

Do you have a dream machine?

I actually would prefer to try many different machines. I haven't done this so before I make a judgement I would like to try a Pfaff, Baby Lock, Elna, Bernina and many others.

Simple meme. As you can see I don't have many strong opinions on sewing machines. I'm very openminded. Now if I can only start sewing again I think I would be on the right track.

Wish me tons of luck.
