Would I be crazy to trade a perfect featherweight for a perfect 15-91 clone if I could find what I want?
I would want it to be 40-50's model
in a color, preferably pink
I keep going back and forth in my mind...
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I think that anyone who says that you are crazy for doing ANYTHING that makes you happy is being a goof...
Go for it!
I don't think that you would be crazy, but I love my FW and would first trade my Viking....but then again I have 6 machines. I guess I am not any help....for I am a machine hoarder!
I'd suggest selling the FW. You can probably buy the perfect 15 for less than the cost of a perfect FW.
I highly recommend the 201! My 15 class just doesn't seem to compare to it...but it just could be my machine. I agree with the earlier post, do what makes you happy!
I'd go for $200-300 plus the Clone. There both excellent, the FW more portable and much more valuable. I could be underestimating the allure of pink though.
I would definitely sell the FW and buy a clone, if that's what you want to do. I have 2 FWs and love them, so I wouldn't consider getting rid of them. That said, I also have a pink Atlas that I love, as well as a baby blue Free Westinghouse. I paid $30 for the Atlas, so I sure wouldn't trade a FW for a clone unless some cash was involved!
