    I can't figure out how to see the pic of the 160th anniversary machine!! :-(
    Found a picture here:

    OK...I'm really not much impressed with the looks!! I'm kinda disappointed. Didn't they go out and ask the vintage lovers for advice? :shock:
    I'm not very impressed either. And aren't the machines made by the "new" Singer company not as good? I'm definitely not chomping at the bit to run out & get one. Especially for $500-$600.

    After 160 years and all the beautiful machines produced by sewing machine manufacturers the world over, you would think the designers could come up with a machine that wasn't dipped in ugly. I'll pass.

    LOL Well I am ordering 2 and I hate anything new so that might que you in to something. ;) Yeah the price is way more than I thought it would be but I think if my buddy that owns a sewing machine shop here locally can get one I can do some trading on one and get it for next to nothing.

    Hehe:> Guess I have to admit I thought this same thing:> I had hoped that they'd come out with a nicely made(more metal) machine to reflect back on their history. Not another plastic monster:< OH well. It won't be on my Christmas list, that's for sure.

    I'd take one if someone wanted to give it to me,(That's how I got my first FW!!) but I'd never buy one. Not a handsome machine at all. Guess I'd like to see a demo of it though.

    Any chance that it's metal? The new Featherweight 75 says in its features that it has a 'Heavy Duty Metal Frame.' it is a lot more than i had hoped it would be.

    Well, I won't be buying one of the 'new Featherweight' machines. If I won one, I'd take it. Just give me one of those old black metal ones any day. That is where the real beauty lies. I think this won the 'ugliest' contest!! It might just look better in white!!

    Same here. Like "dipped in ugly" - that is so true. I will be taking a pass on this machine.

    It looks like I am the only one that likes the look of the new machine. Kathie

    I don't think it looks all that bad...I actually kind of like it...HOWEVER!! When I can get a real FW for less than $300, I'll be darned if I'd spend $500 on that thing!
