    Dear Friends:

    I was given a Featherweight for Christmas this last year. I had been shopping with my daughters for our "annual Christmas Shopping Fun Day" and found it at a thrift store we went into. I drooled and fumed...I couldn't justify spending my Christmas money on myself...so I walked away. On Christmas day, it was the final gift of the day presented (all ten of the children made a big production of the presentation :D ......and yes, I said ten...yes I have ten children...all mine...all from one marriage...no twins :P (those are the most common questions I get..and their answers 8-) 8-) ))

    ok...but back to the topic here!!!!! I was messing around last night (she sews like a dream) and noticed a small metal decal on the machine that said "1851-1951 100 yrs of sewing" Does this mean that my Featherweight was produced as a 100 yr celebration piece???? :!: :!:

    I mean, I was just wondering....ya'll here have made me so aware of looking closely at what I have, now I can't wait to dig out all the other Singers I have collected and really look at them closely.

    Anyway, any information would be appreciated ;) ;)

    Congrats on the machine! I have 6 kids...all one husband and no twins so I get those questions too. You know the question that aggravates me the most? "You know how that happens don't you?" I have heard that one a zillion times! I now just smile and answer "Yes, that's why we have them!"
