    Hi Everyone,
    My 1947 Singer Featherweight came home from Arkansas today, her new "dress" is dark metal flake purple; even the foot control is purple. :l) Gerald Holmes painted it, its beautiful!

    Looks gorgeous Sharon. I really like the colours when they're darker, as it seems more at home on a machine that's originally black. I also think the pale pastels look beautiful too as they look like they could have been original. I'm still getting used to the Featherweights I've seen that are mid-tone brights... although I firmly believe you should do whatever makes you happy! Hope you get lots of enjoyment out of her makeover

    It's a very dark purple, it was hard to photograph, the second picture is more true in color. I finally have my purple featherweight. I love using my featherweights to piece quilts. I bought my first one in 1998.

    Painted FW: I like. Now I want one, lol. Maybe not a FW but a customized something. Maybe a 66.

    Here's a Singer 66 Lotus that I found lurking at the local historical society. As usual, the bobbin cover plate and the faceplate have left the building. Bobbin winder, too.

    And a National electric that is sitting in a treadle cabinet that originally belonged to a Free or something.

    Beautiful paint job, it has a lot of depth and so many colors of purple in it.

    Love the purple! I would like to do that to a FW but I would need more that one before I would take the plunge. I just finished cleaning up two baby blue sewing machines...o natural Here are the pics. The white took a whole bottle of WD40 and i eventually had to lightly scrub the caked on oil with steel wool. Nothing else worked!
