    I made a corduroy jacket with my featherweight, only used the Bernina to zig zag the raw edges.

    I have 2 featherweights A brother pacesetter and now I have a new featherweight Brother which I will use in class Both singer featherweights are really not that light for me but the new brother is so light I forget I have it in my hand lol One of my singer feather weight does not work but it sure looks nice on a shelve in my sewing room So to really answer your question they are light enough to carry and won't hurt your back and sew fabulous

    I have 2 Bernina's which I love, as they have all the bells and whistles that anyone could ever want. But when I joined this board everyone was talking about the Featherweight machine and after doing some research on this "cute" machine I have now bought two. They sew a perfect straight stitch and are light enough to take to classes and Guild meetings. I use mine just about every day and love them for machine piecing. Now I'd like to get one that could use a new paint job, red would be my color of choice! I guess I have caught the bug that abounds on this web site.

    I take mine in the motor home for the winter. It just HUMS along for piecing. IS easy for me to maintain. Lays down a nice straight stitch and takes up little room. Not so with my BIG PFAFF Creative Vision. I would be afraid the motion of the coach rolling down the road would mess up the computer mechanism...

    Cute, lightweight and sew beautifully. Their a drag went it comes to machine quilting though with that small 5 inch throat, and forget applique or zig zag. Their mainly for piecing. Really love mine.
