    My TWO new babies!!!

    My next door neighbor came over and presented me with two perfect and pristine Singer Featherweights.
    One was made in 1950 and the other in 1953...same year I was born. I've been looking for two more Featherweights to go with the two I already have so I can give them to my four grandchildren. I'm still in shock. These machines are almost brand new. Not hardly a scratch or a speck of dust. The cases are also in excellent condition. All the machines need is a servicing and oiling of course. I feel like it's Christmas!!!!
