Well I think I told ya in one of last posts that I found a great deal on a white signer FW, I bought it, but the seller sent me a E and asked for more money than the buy it now price posted, after I had paid for it!! Well what a rip off, no way, so money was returned. I think, LOL any way I found another white FW at great price so I got it, just waiting for it to come home. now I have a nice even number, and the best part of these little beauties is if I ever want to move again, they are nice and small and easy to move. And now I will have two white, and 2 black FW for my class, and guests to use, and I have 2, one blue and one green for me, :-) That is it no more, well unless a nice deep purple and hot hot pink just happen to come along, LOL

    Hi Leaha,
    Enjoyed your post. I am pretty new to quilting. Have done 4 quilts to date, but have been on a serious break for the last 4 - 5 years. So, I am trying to learn. I feel dumb, but what does the "FW" stand for? I wasn't aware sewing machines come in colors either. I have just purchased a new Pfaff Sensation and am eager to get my sewing room set up (recently moved/downsized). I also have a Designer I that I plan to sell. How were you purchasing your machines? EBay? I have not ever sold on EBay, so I have been a bit nervous to list on it. Any suggestions on the best place to list? Sorry for all the questions, but it sounds like you have a great deal of experience.
    Thanks for your input. Have a great evening!

    P.S. Are any of your classes for beginners? Online?

    Hi, FW= Featherweight, a very light weight machine, made by Singer, in the 30's 40's 50's, and I think into the 60's, not sure about that tho. The came in black, tan and white. my blue and green ones are repainted.
    I have 7 Pfaffs and would not want to part with them. 4 are the Pfaff 7570's my dream machine, I really, really love them. I bought 3 of them at local Pfaff dealer, and one at a pawn shop in town. I also bought 2 of my FW from them. I did buy 4 of my FW's on E-bay.
    With shipping any machine you have to be VERY careful about packing and shipping it. I bought a 7570 from Tx. and the packing was not great under the machine, and it arrived broken, had to ship it back. Best to sell local if you can, IMHO.
    My classes are for beginners, 4H, 2 of my students are 9 year old twins, and my other class has 13 &15 year old sisters. the 9 YO had never sewn at all, and both got ribbons at fair. The other gals are dyeing all their fabric to make their quilts, we have dyed, the bright yellow, lime green, orange, hot pink, blue and purple. black is the only color we will not be dyeing.
    I have not done an on line class, but there are just tons of demos on U-tube, I even check them out, can learn so much from them.
    Let me know how things go and if I can be of any help, just let me know.
