    I'm going to try to talk him into letting me have it. He has told me before that he had two, one with a motor and one without. I didn't see one with a motor. The serial # on this one is G707288. If I looked it up right, it was born in 1910 in Elizabeth New Jersey. Gonna see if I can find the other one sometime. I don't remember if this is the same one I sewed on as a kid with the tredle machine or not. But boy I sure could move my feet and get the needle to whirrrrrrring!!

    You can always do what my sister did when she found a couple of really old irons, one was the type you set on the stove and the other had a little fuel container on the side in the attic. She brought them down when the parents were distracted and put them in her car. Took them home, got them all cleaned up and set up in her family room. Looks great.

    Mom noticed them the next time she visited but liked how they had a place of honor in her house and let her keep them.

    So maybe convince your Dad that you'll take care of them and love them and always think of him when you look at them sitting in your house.

    When I was a kid my dad owned a service station and he rented Uhaul trucks. One of the trucks was returned with a little black sewing machine in a case left in the back. Daddy liked the looks of it, looked new, sewed well, so he took it home, put it in the closet and never thought about it again. When I grew up and started quilting I started hearing about these Featherweight machines. When I found out what they were I asked my dad about the machine and he gave it to me for my birthday a couple years ago.
