    Did you name your sewing machine?

    I named my machine as we were seat belting her into the backseat of my car. Her name is Bernadette and I love her. Everyone knows what I'm doing if I say I'm spending time with Bernadette.

    At first I was shy to use her name on the forum but now I see I'm not the only one and for a while I've been wanting to ask...what did you name your machine? I'd love to know that I'm not alone in my happy insanity.

    I have 6 machines and none of them have names. I'm not opposed to names, but nothing has popped into my head so they remain unnamed.

      I have two machines and haven't named them. I don't name my cars either. LOL

        No names here. I just never thought to name them.

            My Janome DC2007LE was Judy.... I traded her in for acBrother Simplicity, and named her Red...

            The little Jem Platinum is Judy Junior, but I might have to change that.

              From the forum's Queen of Singers, I have named ALL BUT TWO of my collection . . .

              The two Featherweights are named Kate Smith and Patsy Cline . . . because they are real Singers!
              Then I have three 3/4 size (99) Singers - Bonnie Sue, Mary Jane, and Jean Ann.
              And the list goes on, one named Bernice, Mary, Dolly, Martha, Rebecca, Elizabeth, Ruth and Doris. And there's Victoria and Sergio (my serger and the only MALE in the bunch). I have two machines who remain nameless . . .
              Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
              it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                My Featherweight is Ella, because, well she's black, so I named her after Ella Fitzgerald.
                My Brother is Jimmy, because my brother is James aka, Jim aka Jimmy the whole time I was growing up.
                Never named the Pfaff. She's German, I guess I could name her after my grandma (dad's mom) ... hmm.

                K - is it KIND?

                  I do name my machines! I spend so much time with them, and they bring me so much joy. The only machine I have not named is my serger, and the main reason is because I used it mostly when I sewed because I had to. It was a tool to do a necessary job. Now I sew because I want to. So different!
                  My machines are:
                  Princess, she is a Pfaff Creative 4
                  Tyrian, he is a Pfaff Creative Performance
                  Thomas the Traveler, he is a Pfaff Passport 2.0
                  Verena, she is a Kenmore 158-19310
                  Vernon, he is a Singer 503a, Rocketeer
                  Pfrederick, he is a Pfaff 130
                  Sashiko Panda, she is a Babylock Sashiko machine (my grandson named her)
                  Then there is my serger, who has no name. If is a Pfaff, and I don't remember the model! (Poor serger!)

                    My 1980's Kenmore is Kenny - actually my friend named him that.

                    My 1958 Blue Morse is Donnie Blue or Blue Roo, depending on the day.

                    My 1950's pink Morse is Marilyn Rose.

                    When I first decided I had to have a pink Morse, I knew I would name her Rose or Rosie because of her color. One day I was on Bonnie Hunter's blog, looking at her vintage machines and she had a pink Morse, same color different model, that she calls Marilyn. Marilyn was my Mom's name and of course she was the one who taught me to sew. So, before I even bought her, she became Marilyn Rose. It is also kind of cool because my Mom was taught to sew by her grandmother - Rose.

                    Since the pink machine was named after Mom, I decided to name the Blue one after my Dad - Don, so Donnie Blue it became. I also call him Blue Roo because my cat Roo has claimed him. He is often found laying next to him with his arms wrapped around the machine.

                      Two of mine are named.....Matilda, the 30" pfaff and Miss Nellie Necchi, the pink number I picked up last week. My babylock came with the name of Audrey....didn't think I could change it since it's right on the machine! My sister just named her pfaff, FiFi La'Pfaff!

                        My Bernina 750 is Boris. When I first brought him home he seemed so big to my little Babylock, I thought what beast, so Boris the Beast he became. I have dropped the beast now as I love him. The Babylock had to have a name then but it is simply Baby.

                          My Juki is Vivian--named for my late grandmother who made her purchase possible. My Brother doesn't have a formal name--he's just Vivian' s little Brother.

                              I named my Babylock Longarm Bertha, she's really big. I liked the name better than what my boys call her,,," the small car in our old bedroom". Lol
                              I should probably think of names for my Janome Travelmate & Singer Featherweight,,
