    I agree with everyone else. A Featherweight is worth having.

    I say "Go for it" If God didn't want you to have you would have been across the room when she was chatting about it. How do you know you can't afford it? Has she told you the price? I say it's an open door, you better walk on through, girl!

    I'm thinking you may have come to the wrong group for resistance support

    Not the way I read it. What I "heard" was the lady had stuff she wanted rid of and could possibly donate. NOT A DONE DEAL the way I read it.

    What group is this for? If it isn't a quilt/sewing group, they might not be that popular. I would check them out. Maybe you could receive one for raffling and you could purchase the other one. Let us know what happens.

    Well I guess I am the odd ball out but you asked the question and I will share my thoughts. I would leave the machine for several reasons, please do not be upset with me when I share this but to me it is truth and then I may be too late to off this information.
    1. You are very blessed with the machines that you have. You have more than one and they will do what you need done.
    2. If you cannot afford it don't let the temptation have control. If you overcome this temptation, you may be blessed with something better later. Don't get it because others have said they have it.
    3. The lady wanted to donate it for a good cause, don't block that cause, you could stop a person who has no machine from getting one at a very reasonable price. This is just a possibility.
    4. I would not share anything with you that I have not gone through myself. I love material and I have quite a bit of it. Many times I would go and get fabric and not make anything out of it. It was the greed in my heart that was ruling me not the need that I have. So with a lot of discipline, I am not getting material until I have brought this very huge stash of mine done. I know I will get talked about but this but it is just my throughts.

    I hope you make a good decision.

    I feel your pain! However, if I can take a page from quilt baby, perhaps you could offer to help her find good homes for the 2 singers. That way, you get the pleasure of helping her, and the pleasure of helping two needy singers find their rightful place in the world. It honestly sounds like you have no need for anymore sewing machines, but there are others out there who would love to buy them.
    Keep away from people who belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too can become great. Mark Twain
