    I am going to look at this featherweight tomorrow night.
    They wanted $250 but said I could have it for $200. Should I buy it?

    Will you be allowed to test drive her? Do you need her? Got the $$$? Then go for it.

    Make sure it has the bobbin case,cords and foot pedal and try to sew with it, if possible. It is a good price, I think. There's not too much that can go wrong with these fine little machines so if it's all there, I think you can get it to work well for you.

    I'm going to take along fabric and thread. I don't need it but I have never actually seen one and every one on the board thinks they are great. I can afford to buy it. I hope it turns out to be as good as it looks. Thanks for your comments.

    Sounds pretty fair and you have the funds. Looks like the manual and attachments are in the box. That is something to check too. They are darling machines. I have my grandma's and treasure it.

    as long as the wiring is good/sound, no cracks, splits, etc. and the bobbin housing is there...it should be great for $200!

    I agree, paid more than that for each of mine! Always handy, will outlast my fancy-schmancy computerized machines for sure, and will make lovely keepsakes for my children. Plus FUN, cute, dependable, and make perfect stitches.

    Yes...even if it feels "stiff", it is an easy fix, so YES!! $200 is a great price.

    I hate to be an enabler, but - YES! Buy it. There are a lot of great things about featherweights.

    Let us know what you decide...

    I'm going to look at it tonight. I found out the guy buys storage units that people rent and never come back for and he sells what he finds in them.
