I'm Teresa from North Carolina and I'm a quilting/sewing fanatic who also has a nice sewing machine collection. Just brought home my mom's Singer 15 model from 1950, with the cabinet and stool. I had it tuned up and it runs very well, just as it did when I learned on it at age 12. I also have my Singer Fashion Mate from 1969, a Brother serger, a 1947 Featherweight, and a Viking Quilt Designer.
Quilting has been my passion for the past 20 years and now I also teach quilt classes and make quilts on commission. Now and then I make something new to wear for myself and I dabble in sewing crafts too.
This site has grown so much since I first came here years ago. I'm looking forward to sharing with and learning from everyone here.

Welcome, Teresa. You have quite a machine collection!
I'm a newbie at sewing, so I hope you will share some of your sewing wisdom.

Welcome Teresa, I live in Charlotte, and I'm always glad to find other Tarheels on here.. For the longest it seemed like Karebear and I were the only ones... Now we have a little group growing every day! ! I have a Featherweight made in about 1955 (maybe). I bought it from Singer in 1957.. On a rent, then purchase plan..I also have a Kenmore early 70's model, a Companion 20/40 serger about1990, and a Janome (my retirement present to me) 1994.. Latest purchase Janome 900 Coverstitch machine since my old serger still works like new so I couldn't see buying a new one for upwards of $1500.. to get the coverstitch I wanted..I do lots of Crafting and sewing , mostly smaller items.. Some garments for me, more for my grands, and little bits here and there of quilting..(more like bazaar items, though)
Sew With Love
