Great machine, my mother had one like that and I let her give it to someone, could kick myself now, but have my grandmothers 221-3 and a white treadle, now to find place to put them. Still looking for a FW I can afford.
Glad you rescused her and will have to keep my eye on E-Bay and CL.
Happy for you.
She cleaned up beautifully....happy stitching.
That would be hard to resist ... I have three black ones (getting ready to list one on craigslist - it's back from getting serviced since I wanted to know it was in working condition before selling) but would love to have a white one. The last one I purchased has the scroll work on it (have wanted one since the other two have straight lines). I saw the last one at an estate sale one morning and didn't buy it - it stayed on my mind all day and I went back at the end of the day and offered them $50 less than they were asking and they took it!!! Just made my day!!!
You did a beautiful job cleaning it all up - enjoy!
Congrats on getting Lilly! She is beautiful!
Your white FW is pretty. Lily's case is the best one I've seen.
I have a Singer 201K treadle named Randy and a tan FW named Freddy. I tend to name them after the people I bought them from.
Lily is sure pretty!!
Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!
I have an "Andy"...he is from late 40-early 50...........a 301A, which means he came from Anderson, SC (not many miles from here)..and I do love sewing on it.......all the time....a while back, my $$$$ Bernina died, and there was my little $32.00 machine and good cabinet just sewing right along...I have used it a lot, since I got it. A fW is still on my list too.

I think I must own her twin.

I've been looking for an affordable Featherweight that sews for years now.....I saw a pale green one once and fell in love with it....of course the original black would be fine.... Congrats ---- achieving or acquiring the desires of our heart is always a blessing---- even for us ---thanks for sharing.
