    Featherweights, yes Plural

    I can't believe I did this, but I just purchased a lot of 5, yes 5, Featherweights from a lady in California. The manufacture dates are from 1938 to 1964. And one of them is a white 221K. I have spent all morning being a Featherweight travel agent as she did not want to to go through the hassle of shipping them and wa not going to sell them individually. Praise the Lord, that I have a son who lives in San Jose, CA and a sister who lives two hours south who will pick them up and bring them to me in April. I have to tell the vintage sewing machine gods that I am out of room and please "NO MORE, I AM DONE".
    Sweet Caroline

    Happiness is a form of travel...not a destination.

    Congrats!!!! It's cool that your family is willing to help!

    As for that telling the Sewing Machine Gods that you're done....good luck with that!!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    What a thrill! For some reason I now have an image of a sewing machine aficionado herding a whole bunch of FWs around, kind of like that old Superbowl commercial with the cats.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!
