    Congrats! It took me 4-5 years of yard saling/flea marketing before I got mine - only paid $100 for her and she's in great shape.

    Have fun sewing on your new FW!

Well the one with the case is home with me today!!!!! It is complete-all tools and book and original tube of oil in its own box for 250.00, the other complete one was 395.00 and the other machine I saw had nothing with it and some problems for 250.00. I am living Christmas again!!!!!
    Wonderful, they are indeed special machines and worth every penny, no matter what you end up spending.

    Congrats! I know you will love it as much as I love mine that my wonderful, sweet, kind, beautiful daughter got me. I was having a wonderful time this past week sewing on her, then I had to fill bobbin and re-thread. Couldn't get her to sew for ANYTHING!!!. Got my instruction book out and then it hit me----- Thread from LEFT to right. Duh. I knew that. Only excuse is, I've been using my Singer 66 Treadle and my Brother and they all thread differently. It's easy to get confused when you're....... old?

    Good for you. I have the Featherweight my mother bought me 49 years ago when I married. My husband was in the military and we had to move our own belongings. I still have that precious little machine and use it when I go to workshops. It still sews beautifully.

    I think you got it at a good price. It will only go up in value.

    I also went to a flea market today in Fla. they had all kinds of fw and they wanted BIG money the cheapest I say was $285.00 most were close to $400.00. I saw one on a table the man was selling mens stuff (tools,etc) he wanted$200.00 we got him down to$175.00 and I brought it home. The case is in great condition and it came with the tray and 5 bobbins. My husband is so happy I got something I wanted.

    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    Between my MIL and my sis in law THEY own a tan featherweight . I'm pretty sure it will be mine one of these days.

    Maybe I ought to put out a couple hints, just in case.
