Sewing Machine Meme

I have a Pfaff 1222 E (definitely not made anymore).
I have had it for about 6 years. My mom gave it to me when I had my oldest daughter and I started sewing.
I would guess it cost about $600.
I sew a little bit of everything diaper bags, mainly cloths for my girls and recently just trying my hand a making a quilt.
I sew at least once a week but this past 2 weeks I have been sewing daily.
I Love Love Love my machine but have not named it.
My machine isn't fancy but always sews a nice stitch and easy to fix a problem if the is one. (usually my mistakes.) All I need it to do is stitch and that's what it does.
Nothing bothers me about my machine.
No great stories. My mom does have the same machine she has used hers for years, she loves the machine so much she has several of them so that if one breaks she has others she could part out. Whenever the dealer has someone trade one in for a newer one they call her to see if she wants it.
I would definitely recommend my machine to others. It is a sturdy machine that will keep sewing and sewing forever.
I think a sewing machine should be reliable and last a long time.
I would love to have a Serger and would mind to have a machine with all the bells and whistles so that I could try new things. But I'm afraid I may just go back to good ol' reliable Pfaff in the end because I know my machine.

About Me

My photo
Jared and I were married March 1st 2002. Yes that makes 8 years happily married. Shortly after getting married we moved to Utah for work and while there we were joined by our daughter MaKena on June 16, 2003. If I had to describe MaKena in one word it would be personality, she is bursting at the seams with it. We were in Utah for a year and a half and then moved back to AZ. After a long wait we happily welcomed Kayli to our family on June 12, 2008. Kayli is a whirl wind and keeps me on my feet. She is talking like crazy and has no fear. She is her daddy's girl through and through. Makena looks more and more like me all the time and Kayli is the spitting image of her daddy(yet feminine). We are so excited to add our first little boy to the family in May of 2010. Jared stays very busy with work and I am loving being a mom and wife. I love to do anything crafty(sew,crossstitch, paper crafts, etc)reading, and organizing my house. I always have way to many projects going at one time.
