    They are extremely sought after. DO not sell it without a lot of thought.

    The beauty of the machine is its ability to sew a great straight seam. Very necessary in quilting. It is easy to maintain and a workhorse.

    You could sell it to me!!
    People like them because they sew a straight stitch, and are light weight and easy to haul to class. Plus they look really cute!!

    They are light weight and great for taking to classes. I think you should keep it. At first I thought the same way but now I want to get one. I've been collecting old things lately; I told my sister that I think its because I want things in my house that are older than I am and still works. I don't know if that's it but it sounds better than saying I have a "Problem" I do like old things and I'm trying to get a machine for each of my grandkids. If you decide to get rid of it PM me; I live in VA as well.

    If you sell it and I had the money, I would buy it.

    They are lightweight, easy to handle, fairly quiet, sew a great straight stitch, and are just a really nice little machine.

    Hope you decide to keep it and learn to sew with it.

    Featherweights go for a lot of money. An old one in excellent condition would be wonderful

    Don't be disappointed because it is "only" a straight stitch machine. With the included attachments you can do some awesome projects. Add the buttonholer attachment for beautiful button holes. It's a great little machine; mine is 63 years old and still sews as well as it ever did.

    I just bought one after a long search. Hold onto yours for a while before even thinking of selling it, for its sewing prowess and for its history.
