    i'm new here and this may be a no-no coming in on someone else's question..... but what is so important about the featherweight? i learned to sew on one (yes, they made them that long ago) and i have inherited 2 of them. in terms of quilting, what do they do better than other machines?

    I have 8 machines and would buy a featherweight in a minute if I had the money right now.

    I like my featherweight, and told my husband I use all of my machines. He doesn't use all of his tools, so I told him when he passes away, and we have an auction to sell them off they will say this guy never used half of them. LOL

    LOL, my justification would be, do I have to borrow money for it? No, Do I have to skip paying a bill to get it? No, Am I using my food money? No, Can I pay cash for it? Yes, I so would be there! :)

    Well my husband has five guitars and two amplifiers that he enjoys. He does not complain.. in fact he wishes he could buy me a longarm machine... not in the cards for sure... but if we had the cash he would :) I am still looking to get a treadle machine or a long neck ... and an embroidery machine!!!

    I have a kenmore, a domestic and two featherweights...

    I did not need one, but they are so cute and usable, that I just compared it to my husbands guns, that he dose not use at all any more. Also would not give up one for anything.

    I laughed out loud when I started reading this! I bought a featherweight this past week...because my husband enjoys going to each and every football game there is during football season. I told him I knew I already have 3 other machines, that I use, but I NEEDED this one because she was so cute and because I have been wanting one AND because I just needed it to keep me happy while he was out being happy at the football games. I never complain about his games. I actually enjoy the quiet Friday nights. It's extra quilting time for me, but it sure made me come up with a really good excuse for purchasing something I didn't really need, but then I really DID NEED it... It had this uncanny pull on me!

    tell him that you need the lighter weight machine to carry to quilting classes. It will save trips to the chiropractor from lugging your heavy machine around.

    Here's how I justify it:

    Does fishing put food on the table? Yes, if you clean the fish and cook it.

    Does quilting put food on the table? Yes, if you sell one so you can go out to dinner.

    No brainer!

    My husband has a 1949 Chevrolet that cost more than all my machines and fabric. If I can afford it at the time I buy what I want. We do have bills and a lot of needy family members so they come first.

    If you ever watch Suze Orman, she says,"people first, then money, then things", so since you're in the people catagory, make yourself happy and go for it.

    Buy the machine. It is a wonderful machine to have in your collection. You will find that it is a great traveling machine for classes. I love mine!! :P

    When I got my third machine my DH asked if I was going to trade in or sell my old ones. I asked him what he was going to do with his 3 golf cub SETS when he got a new set. No more questions on why I kept my old machines.
