    Hello,
    As promised I'm posting some pics of my 2 new featherweights. The black one, 1945 is up and running with a beautiful stitch after the oil/heat treatment. Had to oil 3 times and let it sit overnight then added the hairdryer to the mix! The white one is apart, undergoing it's oil/heat applications. I did get new belts at my local sewing machine store..just asked for the 17.5 inch belt for the singer 221, and got them easily and inexpensively. So the white and black models can use the same belts as replacements! So far , sew good! I will post some photos of the 319 I got at the estate sale last week next.

    Here is the 319W. I 've been late to post photos of this as I've been busy playing with it! I just love, love, love this machine. It sews beautifully and came with all the attachments, instructions and all the cams for the decorative stitches. Also came in a trapezoid case, that seems to go with my 301's, at least that's where I see them the most frequently. You guys are correct, sometimes the machines find you! I'm a happy gal!

    I love this machine!! It is the more rare Black color so that even adds to the appeal. This is one Electric that I would keep in my collection if I found one!!

    Congratulations Jane! What year is the white FW? So far everyone I know with a white FW has a 1964 model, including me? I am curious about the year of yours?

    I am spending the day in a vain attempt to clean my bedroom. (There are 5 full-sized machines and two portables in there, in addition to enough books and magazines to last the rest of my life.) So far, the only big surprise I have found is my youngest daughter's Christmas money from about 10 or 15 years ago. She will be happy. :-P
    Miz Johnny happy birthday to you and yes you did list your birthday as March 5 in your profile.

    Someday when you get to it, I'd love to see the picture of your Pfaff treadle. It is my dream to get a Pfaff treadle one day, as you all know how much my Mother loved her Pfaff 130 - I know the Pfaff 130 is not a treadle, but she so loved those Pfaff's.

    Lena welcome aboard! You are in good company here as we all have quite an addiction to vintage machines of all makes!

    Billy, you are quite the character! I always figured you just liked the 50's era! But, I guessed you a little older than you are!
