    I got my featherwieght I bought off Ebay and unpacked it today. It brings back so many memories of my mom teaching me how to sew.

    I paid 165, more than the 150, I had budgeted but the machine is in almost pristin condition. It has the original accessories, box and tray. It sews and sounds the way I remember.

    I don't want to use it as it's in such condition, I don't want to scratch it.

    That is a great buy. You are lucky. I thought I was lucky when I got mine for $180 on ebay. It was in good condition, but needed some cleaning. Way to go.

    Congratulations!

    I know your excitement as I got one last week in perfect condition. There are a couple of pin scratches but that is about it. Mine had no case though. Which is fine as I plan on using it.

    I have already started making a quilt on it. It(she) just purrs along. I love her.

    My son wanted me to sell it for a profit, but no way. She's my baby Priscilla. (Prissy for short).

    You can either keep her for an investment, or use her. I plan on using mine and the investment will be all of the wonderful quilts she produces! :thumbup:

    Gotta warn you though, once you start sewing, you're sunk! You will want to use her all the time! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    By the way, where's her picture?
