    I have been sort of looking for a Singer Featherweight. Looking at all of the beautiful pictures on the board of those great little machines. Went on ebay to look around but just couldn't quite convince myself that I needed another sewing machine. I have my MIL's old red eye singer, a brother CSy6000i, a Janome Mini for my GD to learn on, a Universal that I made all of my clothes and those of my boys on way back when and I just found a beautiful Singer 201 which will be great for the lapthrow quilting that I do for local nursing homes because of the large harp area, so did I really need another sewing machine, NOT!!! But there it was and I just couldn't resist. The lady wanted $200 but she finally settled for $150 when I explained to her that it would need to be serviced and maybe even a few parts replaced. So here she is before I have her serviced and cleaned.

    She is very pretty. Have you looked up her birthday yet? What are you going to name her?

    She was born in March, 1938. She is 2 years older than me. Her decals around the sewing areas are a little worn but that is OK with me because it just shows that she was loved and used often. She is pretty now but she will be gorgeous when she is serviced, cleaned and polished. I think my brother machine will take a back seat to these two singer machines and will only be used when I need to make fancy stitches. I think I will name her Molly because I always wanted a little girl named Molly but we were blessed with two boys instead.
