I went to my local quilt shop and looked at the featherweight. He had one with a scroll plate and one with a plain plate. I fell in love with the plain "Miss Lizzie". She has a case that looks good with no musty smell and is perfect except for a tiny bit of fading in the gold in one place. She's home now and is resting. I have bobbins, the 1/4 inch foot and we're ready to sew. Off to lunch so i can get back to her and try her out. The price was as good as e-bay and I got to meet her first.
