Inside the Studio: My Sewing Machines


I do more than simply hoard yarn and fabric. It appears I have a slight addiction to sewing machines.

Maybe that's not entirely true, as I have only actually purchased one sewing machine ever and that was for our daughter. I don't even recall helping to pick them out. My husband loves to surprise me... I mean, spoil me.


I'll tell the story of how I acquired these machines another day, for now I'm just going to share with you what I am currently using. I have six, mostly functioning, machines (not counting my daughter's).


  • My Grandmother-in-law's old Brother

  • 1935 Singer with pedal control at the knee

  • Kenmore, circa 1997

  • Singer Serger
