A Rose by another name

What is your sewing machine's name??





I named my Singer 221 STELLA. She is a sweet little lady from the 30's.

My Bernina 930 is a quirky gal. She's a hard worker, but there always seems to be some little hiccup-burp. I named her Bessie Higginbottom after the cartoon character.






My new Babylock is named Francis, after baby on Dirty Dancin, mostly because she's a star in such a humble disguise.



If you want to hear what other sew-ists are saying go here. Fabric on sale here.

My hand operated singer is an old lady (not sure how old, but definitely pre-dates electric machines!) and so I called her Jemima. It seemed to fit!

I have to name them? "Butt head" or "my third appendage" doesn't work?
