    You are going to love this little machine. I have 2 and love them both. They sew such a straight stitch. Enjoy.

    I have a 201 and I have it in the shop to be cleaned and all the gunk removed. I highly recommend doing this because it probably hasn't had that done in a very long time if any. Yes it looks very dirty, sorry.

    YIKES lube/oil I didn't realize there was a difference. Please explain, thank you.

    I checked the manual and it just mentions Singer Motor Oil, nothing about lube.

    Congratulations on your FW!
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    congrats on your new baby, I see you live in the Soo in MI. Where did you look to find a Featherweight?
    Quilting is an addiction that you can be proud of and enjoy.

    I found it through a Yahoo Group, there are definitely no Featherweights for sale up here.
