    My husband bought his mother a Singer featherweight when he was still in highschool. She used it a few times and then packed it away. Went to see his parents today and she surprised me with it! WOW!!! I was so surprised! Been wanting one for quite some time - has 6 feet and works like a dream. Hubby tried it out and everything sounds quiet! Can hardly wait to try it out tomorrow. Have downloaded the manual for it and for some of the feet!

    Enjoy looking! (Checked on when it was made - and it is the June 1950 anniversary edition!)

    Very clean and just a few marks on it

    6 bobbins and the feet attachments - most bobbins had 3-4 different colors of thread on them. LOL so glad we decided to empty them before using them.

    Thinking about naming her after hubby's mom "Esther" - but will work with her a bit and see. :) Hope she is as sweet as my M-I-L!
