    Cool Featherweight Restoration

    I cannot find anyone nearby to do a restoration on a FW. I have someone who can work on them and I can do maintainence but I want to do a custom job. Any suggestions for me for a restorer? I want to change the color and it's in pretty good shape I have several FW that are nicely restored to original status. I just want one to have fun with! I'm in San Diego County, CA Thanks and have a great weekend.

    There's a man in Arkansas, that does the repainting. Search on here for his address.

    I live in Fallbrook. I have a friend in Anaheim who specializes in FW repair and also paints them. I highly recommend him. His name is Lloyd Askew and his e-mail is: laskew9243@gmail.com.

    Bonnie Hunter just had a Featherweight painted and it seemed like it was quite reasonable. I don't know the name, but I bet you could find it on your blog.

    My go to guy:http://www.sewingmachinesteve.com/Pages/default.aspx

    Steve has a mechanical engineering degree and does beautiful work. He ships internationally as well.

    Please don't settle for a "cheap" job. You will never be happy and it's a disservice to a beautiful machine.

    Post a photo when you get her done!
    Warning! If someone comes to your door telling you they are from the government and they're checking to see how bad the ticks are in your area, and then tell you to take off your clothes and dance around so they can check for ticks.... DON'T DO IT!!! This is a scam! They just want to see you naked! I wish someone had told me this yesterday, I feel so stupid.
