I had a rough day at work and came home tired and in a "not so good" mood. Before I hardly got through the door DH said, look at the newspaper on the table. There's a featherweight machine advertised. Hmmm, sure enough there was. Called the lady and she live about a mile from me, her name was Nancy. I was the first to call and went right over. It was in great shape, even the case. Had a nice box of accesories and the manual. She had it priced at the repair shop and he told her $300 or even more. She just wanted it to go to someone who would use it and not list it on E Bay to make a big profit. I now own, "Miss Nancy", named for her former owner. Very little needs to be done and she sews like a dream, so straight and smooth. Now I know why everyone loves these! Sorry I don't have very good luck with pictures, but y'all know what they look like. Yippee looking foreward to playing a little more this weekend.
