I have counted all of my machines at one time and another. Back when I had only 12 (November 2010) I could tally them in my head. I remembered where each one came from, how much I paid and each story of the acquisition.
Today I wrote down each machine's make and model, serial number if I could see one or if it had one, date acquired and comments.
I have exactly one hundred machines.
Most work, some are parts machines (only five, so far). Too many need attention and servicing. I have forgotten when I got many of the machines. I estimated dates and, since I rarely pay a lot for a machine I also estimate cost. The real bargains I remember as well as the over priced silly purchases. The factual information may be retrievable. I took pictures so I may be able to figure out dates. Only one is a mystery machine. It is a Singer 27 vibrating shuttle. It is possible that it is the machine that belongs in the treadle cabinet that went back to Betsy.
Will I stop at 100? Nope, not a chance.
