    That is s amazing!! You realize you stole it for $45. Now, if I could find one like that. WOW!!! I just gave $100 for a black one and that's all I got was the machine and a broken case and thought that was a real deal. But you, you really won the lottery with that gem. Take good care of her!

    I feel your excitement. Looks new, like you pulled it out of the box for the first time.

    Have you named her yet? I would call her "White Rose" because it looks like embossed roses in the case lining.

    I have a 1935 black featherweight that I received for Christmas when I was 11. I'm still using that little jewel

    Thank goodness you got it!

    I got rid of the musty smell in the box by placing a charcoal Odor Eaters insole in there (available in pharmacies with the other foot products) and closing it up for awhile. In fact, I keep the insole inside the case with the machine now permanently -- clean and even acts as a cushion for the machine.

    Beautiful and I am so happy for you. Have fun using it, should probably oil real good and grease it also if it comes with grease. Probably been a while since it was oiled.

    Thanks so much for everyone's good wishes and info.I did oil every place shown in manual, and put motor lube stuff in where indicated. I think I need a new belt, it is cracked, and flaking when I run machine. Also can't get the lightbulb to lock in.But other than that she seems to run great, so quiet.I will be checking the Vintage Machine section, I think I saw someone here sells parts. So many helpful quilters on this Forum!

    I'm as excited (all most) as if I'd gotten it! I'm so happy for you. A sewing room just isn't totally complete without a Featherweight. I have a black one and thought my room was complete but now it looks like I'm going to have to search for at least one other color.
