    Great yard sale day!!! Michaels carries a black rolling case that is 8”x15” that works well for featherweights or other small machines. You can get a 40 percent off coupon in their ad or on line.

    Congratulations! I have just acquired a Feather Weight also. I love mine.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.
