Hi, This is my first post to the board. I just bought a singer featherweight and wondered what the word "Simanco" means. I thought it might mean a town, but could not find anything.
Also, I was at a quilt show several months ago and saw a vender with LED (I think) light bulbs for the featherweight. I took his card in case I ever got a featherweight and of course put it in a safe place and now can't find it. Whatever the light bulb was called, it did not get hot like the lightbulb in my machine.
I really enjoy the threads in this area. I have a 1891 hand crank, my Aunts 1950 singer, a white treadle, the feather weight and a Baby Lock. Gosh, until I listed them all, I did not realize that I had that many. I wonder if my husband has noticed.
