    Maybe I'm the one who read wrong.
    So if someone said "I'll donate $100.00 to that cause" and a friend said "ooooh ... let's talk I could use $100.00" is that right? It's the same thing.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Don't buy unless you can afford, or maybe she will let you pay when you can.

    Not at all the same thing as the situation described in the original post, IMO.

    I agree with everyone else. A Featherweight is worth having.

    I say "Go for it" If God didn't want you to have you would have been across the room when she was chatting about it. How do you know you can't afford it? Has she told you the price? I say it's an open door, you better walk on through, girl!

    I'm thinking you may have come to the wrong group for resistance support

    Not the way I read it. What I "heard" was the lady had stuff she wanted rid of and could possibly donate. NOT A DONE DEAL the way I read it.

    What group is this for? If it isn't a quilt/sewing group, they might not be that popular. I would check them out. Maybe you could receive one for raffling and you could purchase the other one. Let us know what happens.

    Well I guess I am the odd ball out but you asked the question and I will share my thoughts. I would leave the machine for several reasons, please do not be upset with me when I share this but to me it is truth and then I may be too late to off this information.
    1. You are very blessed with the machines that you have. You have more than one and they will do what you need done.
    2. If you cannot afford it don't let the temptation have control. If you overcome this temptation, you may be blessed with something better later. Don't get it because others have said they have it.
    3. The lady wanted to donate it for a good cause, don't block that cause, you could stop a person who has no machine from getting one at a very reasonable price. This is just a possibility.
    4. I would not share anything with you that I have not gone through myself. I love material and I have quite a bit of it. Many times I would go and get fabric and not make anything out of it. It was the greed in my heart that was ruling me not the need that I have. So with a lot of discipline, I am not getting material until I have brought this very huge stash of mine done. I know I will get talked about but this but it is just my throughts.

    I hope you make a good decision.

    I feel your pain! However, if I can take a page from quilt baby, perhaps you could offer to help her find good homes for the 2 singers. That way, you get the pleasure of helping her, and the pleasure of helping two needy singers find their rightful place in the world. It honestly sounds like you have no need for anymore sewing machines, but there are others out there who would love to buy them.

    It's all a matter of price! All of us who own FW love them. You'll never regret this purchase.

    Reading this, I'm thinking...WOW! I'd love to get a Featherweight...not for me, but for my sister, as a thank-you for her hospitality each year that I've gone to Montana and stayed with her for a bit over a week. Yes, she's a quilter...and I'm thankful for her getting me hooked on it!

    Whatever you and she decide on the machines, you might let her know that there are bunches of us on this board who would dearly love to have one or both of those machines.

    Quick update - still haven't heard if they can be sold since the two owners are still alive but not using them. They were two brands I'd never heard of - on brown and one black but both shuttle bobbins types. I pointed her to the local sewing machine museum guy for a valuation. They seemed to be 3/4 size. Cute little machines.
