    Congratilations,, I have a '52 FW and am a young girl from 1941. You are old as you think and feel. Sewing, reading I feel younger than my youngest child who is 42, but when I get up and start walking, will not that young anymore. I lived in OKC and my two sister-in-laws still live there.

    Enjoy it. My mother had one she purchased in 1936 before she married my father in 1940. She brought it to the Baltimore area from Illinois when she married my father. She left it to me when she died but I gave it to my neice because I already had a featherweight in mint condition that I got at a yard sale for just $20. I worked for a Bernina dealer and fell in love with their machines. I presently have 4 Berninas and the featherweight as well as a Brother Embroidery machine. I use the Featherweight when I go to a workshop as it is so much lighter than my Berninas. I learned to sew as a teen on my mother's featherweight. My parents gave me a sewing machine for a high school graduation present. It was in a cabinet and I long since wore it out.

    Congratulations on your 1947 Featherweight They are just too cute.

    I just received my 1957 Featherweight (my birth year is 1946). I couldn't hold out for a 1946 - seems lots of gals were born in that year too. My little machine has had a hard life. He was rescued by a family name Bowser who nursed it and put it back in service thus the name Bowser ... he's a tough little puppy.

    I have ordered a seam guide from novamontgomery.com. Check her site if you are interested. Much less expensive than a 1/4" pressure foot. She also has a threader that makes it easier to thread the needle. (I am not related to Nova nor do I receive a kickback.)

    Enjoy!
