    Oh I'd get the black one they are so much better than the white ones, I have 5 white ones and 4 black ones, hands down the black ones are the best. I bought the white ones before I knew, and I wanted 3 for my Great Nieces and 1 for my GD. I have one for myself but love my lil black beauties best.
    Plus the black one is a centennial......the case has it's key and is in great shape and you get the attachments...... :thumbup: :thumbup:
    Everything looks good with the white one I guess it should just be what you like best.

    Go for the black. More for your money.

    I thought I wanted a white FW, but I don't. NOT that I'd pass one up if it was free to me, but I wouldn't spend money on one. Just my opinion, and now that you have that, you should choose the one that YOU want the most!

    Great brother you have there!! Does he need another sister???? :lol: ;)

    would go with the black one - you seem to get alot more for the money - sometimes the attachments are harder to find than the machines!!!

    Can I borrow your brother? Mine would never do that for me - ok he must want a quilt made or something lol Are you the baby of the family - just wondering.

    Can I borrow your brother for my birthday? I have 5 brothers and none of them would do something like this!

    I'm not complaining, though, because they are there when I NEED them.

    Black! They're prettier and I think they have a better motor.

    I vote black!

    I was recently chatting with a guy who worked for Singer for over 40 years and he was saying that the black FWs are much better quality than the white ones. I've heard that elsewhere too.

    Overall tho you need to choose the one that calls to you...

    Lucky you to have such a wonderful and generous brother. Go with your heart and choose the one that "speaks" to you.
