Oh, my! It’s amazing the advances made in sewing machines over the past century. Thank goodness! I know my mother learned to sew on a machine like this:

I’m so thankful I didn’t have to learn to peddle and sew and chew gum and think at the same time!
What is your favorite feature of your sewing machine?
For me, my #1 love: push a button and the needle will stay down whenever I stop sewing. This is great when removing pins before sewing over, making any adjustments, or pivoting at corners. It’s difficult for me to sew on a machine without this feature!
What feature will you get in your next sewing machine?
NOTE: One can never have too many sewing machines! EVER!
