    Introducing Billy Jo!

    Named after our very own Billy, this is my new 1957 FW and gorgeous table. It doesn't look as though it's ever been used. The machine has several sets of scratches that look like needles, but the machine doesn't seem to have gotten a lot of use. There was a long piece of thread stuck in the bobbin mechanism, so I think someone just gave up and put it away.

    Now I'm having a hard time deciding which to keep, Billy Jo or Bitsy, my 1947 FW. She's much prettier, but she's got lots more wear, and her box stinks. But oh is she pretty, and she's my first. But I don't have room for two.

    Oh heck, cut another hole in that fancy featherweight table and set that other one in there and invite a friend over for tea.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!
