    We have six featherweights in the family and not a tan one to be had. DD has a white one and I have the Centennial black one. I'd like a tan one (hard to come by) and a 222. I keep looking. Featherweights do show up on Kijiji (Canadian version of Craig's List) but I rarely see the ones that I am looking for. I'd also like a Featherweight cabinet and a Penguin walking foot. It gives me a reason to keep hunting.

    I snagged a tan one for $100 last year. I don't know what the letter is but it is definitely tan. I have seen some in pics that appear a lighter shade of tan than the one i have. Was there more than one tan color? Imagine my surprise when I saw these selling on ebay for $700!

    No tan FW at my house but I do have the black 221 and 222K.
    Wondering when and how many they made of the tan FWs.

    I have my grandmother's and the homeless one that my DH found at the dump - they are both black. I don't know for sure how many she has total, but my Mom has 6 tans, 4 whites and 2 222s. She probably has 10-12 black 221s.

    I have already told her that they all come to ME since I am the only one in the family that sews. I don't care that anyone else wants them for their antique value - I EARNED THEM!!!!! hahahahaha

    I have a tan one, it was the first one I got. My son found it for me, he didn't buy it when he first saw it, because I had told him to look for "little black Singers"
    Thank goodness the machine was still there when I went back.
    Now I have the Tan, a white and 2 Blacks.
    My tan one is still my favorite, and the one I paid the least for!
