    Someone please talk me down!

    Was at a meeting last week and while discussinig door prizes for the annual meeting, the Secretary mentioned that she would be happy to donate things from her home - which she can't move into till all her grandparents' stuff is removed. She was describing things - then said"I even have two of those little Singers in the black boxes,,,"
    After further description, I turned to her and said "We have to TALK!"
    I really don't need another sewing machine - even if it is a Featherweight. I have my grandmother's 201, my Pfaff 1222e, my Janome 4800 and my daughter's Janome (more basic) - as well as a Singer 99 coming home to me this spring from Thunder Bay. But I have wanted a FW to take to classes, etc. Plus I can't really afford one right now ...
    Someone please talk me through this!

    It will depend on the price and making sure if it needs a good home!

    Be strong!

    Unless it's free, is it free? In which case, I wish you strength in getting it out to the car.

    Go for it! A FW is great for most classes. How could you not at least go look and find out how much she wants for them?

    Featherweight? Resistance is futile.
