    Today is the first day I got to sit down and play with my new featherweight after getting back from the repairman where he cleaned, oiled, and lubed it and replaced the belt on it.

    Unfortunately, there I don't have a manual for it, yet, so I had to look up on the internet how to thread it! LOL

    The machine is 65 years old and you can see my netbook in the background open to the site with the threading instructions. :)

    some quick 4 patches I made while playing!

    It just goes to show, how we can appreciate the past and enjoy it more with help of the present technology. Beautiful machine, have fun.
