    My birthday is July 9th and I upgraded my sewing machine just about 6 months ago to the Singer Confidence Quilter. I'm a newbie, so to me, that's an upgrade...lol. It does the job to create what I want at this point. Maybe one day I will have a Janome or Bernia. One can dream...lol.

    My old sewing machine was a 60's Singer Scholastic. We had what you might call a tenuous relationship. She just never seemed to perform as she should, despite many dollars spent on "therapy," and I think she felt the same way about me, to be perfectly honest.

    My mother had a newer machine that was also a little temperamental and one day I saw the Brother CS-6000 on sale online and encouraged her to buy it. As soon as she got it, we put the old Singers aside and never looked back, it performed so well. Soon I developed a serious case of machine envy. I couldn't even look at my machine without feeling resentment and, eventually, disgust. Our relationship had ended.

    My birthday went by uneventfully, but the following Christmas I had a large package under the tree at my mother's house. When I opened it and saw it was the Brother CS-6000 box, my exact words were, "aww, that's not nice, wrapping my present in your old box." So imagine my surprise when I opened that box and it revealed another, brand new machine.

    She isn't fancy or expensive, but she is great fun to use and we celebrate her birthday every year by making gifts for my family and friends. They return the favor by giving us notions, tools and fabric.

    My birthday is Christmas Day so I get to celebrate the birth of Jesus and the birth of me. Pretty cool. My husband gave me my very first electronic machine for Christmas a number of years ago. I cried when I opened the box!!!

    My birthday is in May, and I have had my sewing machine for over 30 years, so I can't remember when it came into my life, but probably around the spring time. We used to make special purchases after income tax refunds. I have used that machine to make clothes for myself and my family and for others, many others.
    I recently started quilting with some girl friends and I love it, love it, love it.
    I love my machine, love to sew and really enjoy making quick one day projects, but I can handle the long haul too.
    I also love free stuff.
    Thanks for your giveaway.

    My birthday is 10/1 and I absolutely adore the fall, the colors of the leaves, the weather changes - some cool nights and our only child, a daughter, was born after almost 8 years of marriage! We are blessed!!

    My birthday is Oct. 12 -- Columbus Day. I'm not sure...maybe that explains why my favorite quilts have a "patriotic" theme...
