In addition to my modern-day Juki and Janome, I have two wonderful Featherweights and I really enjoy sewing with them. My FWs were manufactured in the 1940s and 50s. I really wish they could talk. I find myself wondering about the ladies who owned them before me. Who were they? What were their lives like? Did they quilt or make clothing on my little featherweights? I feel like I'm touching history when I sew with them. Does anyone else find themselves thinking about these things while they are sewing with their vintage machines?
