DH bought me a Featherweight a year ago and is quite familiar with them. We went to the Paducah Quilt Show this week and he saw a booth with lots of painted Featherweights - bright red, turquoise, bright colors. All were very shiny and had new decals on them. Even the foot pedals were painted to match. The man said that it cost him $300+ to have them painted and he wanted about $700 for each one.
