    Singer featherweight

    How do you answer the question, "what's so great about a Singer featherweight?"

    I've always wanted one, and now I have a lead on one that's reasonably priced and in great condition. But when my daughter asked that question, I hardly knew what to say.

    Thx much!

    They're lightweight, sew straight, easy to self-service on the rare occasions they need something fixed, and they belonged to an incredible generation of women. By sewing on mine, I pray to walk in their footsteps!

    It has the best straight stitch ever - they are small- portable- great work horses and last but not least they are "cute"
    To keep your mind fresh- learn one new thing a day !

    Don't tell her that we name our FWs. She will really think you are out of your mind!

    I love my Featherweight. In fact I have two. One I use all the time and one that is put up and is in pristine condition. I have several machines, but my Featherweight is my favorite.

    I totally agree with Sharon and you won't be disappointed if your purchase one. Even if you don't use it, they are the cutest little things to just look at.
