I don't remember exactly how long I've had my beloved Brother machine, but it's about 12 years old. I looked it up, and I've put over 12.5 million stitches on it. I'm kind of proud of my workhouse machine. Wish I had a cool name for it.

My little 221 is named AUDREY, Only because she's beautiful, black and looks so cool.(like Audrey Hepburn) My Other machine a Babylock is named ELIZA. Someday I want an embroidery machine her name will be Olivia(?) Just like the sound of the name.
an upholster who has a small shop close by calls his Singer machines
Roy and Rex, Said he enjoyed cowboy movies when he was young and this way their memory lives on.

I love those names.

that's a good idea--it's a tough machine, and I've learned so much using it.

That's good. It is a hard worker

You should be proud! It's amazing how many stitches we put on our machines and we don't even realize how hard we work them. I have Babylock machines and yes, I have named them too. I like dailylaundry's suggestion of Alex.

One if the embroidery groups I'm in has menu members who have names their machines, and even decorate them with stickers.

I've got a Brother Quattro Innovis eye 6700D (Disney) machine and I love it. But at heart I'm a Husqvarna gal! I've had a few of them over the years and my newest one I bought in August is a Husqvarna Ruby Royale. She sews beautifully and both machines are work horses too!!
Love Chris

I thought i would never want a brother; I thought that since wal mart had them that they weren't very good. I was hesitant when my husband got a brother, but I have loved every minute of it. Makes me happy to watch it work.

Which Brother do you have? My smaller machine is a Brother 1500D. I bought it ages ago and it is a never fail machine! I wish it had a few of the newer extras on it - but all in all I can't complain!! Perhaps you could name your Brother machine, Alex - short for Alexander the Great!

I have an Innovis 4000D, and then I purchased an upgrade several years ago so I really don't know what it is now-a 4500? One dealer told me it was a duetta now. It is a combination embroidery/sewing machine, and it sews jus as well as it embroiders.

Maybe someone can come up with a cool name for her. She deserves one.

She does. My dear husband surprised me with her for Christmas one year, and I've loved machine embroidery ever since.
