    My dh stopped at the thrift store this morning; came home later and said there was a sewing machine there. He didn't know much about it but he had taken a picture on his phone. Hmmm, looks kind of like a featherweight. Off I go to check it out and it was a featherweight 221. Lucky lil sewing machine has a new home with someone to love it. I cleaned it; oiled it; and it runs like a champ. Case is in need of some repair, but there are lots of attachments with it and the original manual. Monday was my birthday so this is my present to myself. :lol: :lol:

    Don't feel bad I don't either!!! I was able to find a FW 221 but it was not cheap and didn't have the orginal book, so you are a lucky lady! Love Mine!
