    Congratulations on all the great finds. I'll bet you did a happy dance when you found the penguin walking foot. I haven't had a chocolate malt in ages - it sure sounds yummy. :-)

    Think I'm also getting jealous.. I'm in a one bedroom apartment, with no room.. Had to move the dog house under my office table desk in the living room to make room for my singer 66 in a cabinet.. Dog finally got used to it.. I love the old machines.. and am debating whether to take a ride to the north shore of our island to an estate sale which advertised sewing machines.. At least an hour ride.. in the rain.. Ughhh..

    O M Gosh !! A friend of mine told me about these penguin foot months ago and quoted that its expensive as well as hard to find! You are so lucky to received one and i hope you can show us later what you made using this foot.
    take plenty of pic of family & friends, keep tabs on loved ones but make time for yourself !

    Oh my!! I'm going to have to start hunting for this. The featherweight is so light...... can you do a large quilt without the whole machine moving around?

    Such amazing ingenuity! I wasn't aware of the penguin walking foot before your post. Thanks for educating me!

    Heh heh heh I don't know yet - I would say you'd be severely limited by the narrow throat space on the featherweight. The video I posted is not mine.

    I recently purchased my featherweight and have only played around with it so far. It joins my other 13 vintage Singers - oops, that number is up to 16 as of this week.

    BTW I only paid $50 for my featherweight - normal price around here is about $350.
