    That is a custom paint job but they are sure proud of their work. This is ridiculous. This type of ad is what is going to destroy the market for Featherweights.

    When I bought my first featherweight about 15 years ago I was told they were rare and hard to find, not so! They are everywhere with all kinds of prices. I would pay no more that $400. and it would have to be in mint condition with a good cast. I agree they must think they r made of gold

    I'm with PTQuilts on this one! I think it's what I would do if told to sell off my surplus machines!

    I have a Featherweight that was my Mum's. She bought it 20 years ago for $125 (used).

    There is an elderly gentleman here in town who used to work for Singer many years ago. He still does repairs in his home and I have taken all my old Singer machines to him for servicing. I asked him about the Featherweights once and he said they are overpriced and that if you can get one for $300 then that should be the maximum one should pay. Just FYI.

    They are beautiful machines and I bet there is someone out there that will pay that price. Not me but I would love the red one...hmmm I wonder if HE would notice $3000 missing from our checking account?

    I think to repaint one is a tremendous amount of work. I love the red one and if I win the lottery, I'll buy it. I bought a 222K in mint condition for a bunch of money and have no regrets.

    I know the 222's go for alot since there are so few of them out there. They're the ones that have the removable bed so you can say sew a sleeve on.
    I didn't give that for my pristine condition 222.

    My grandmother used to have a saying -- "asking is one thing, getting is another"

    In other words you can ask whatever you want but chances are you won't get what you're asking for it.

    I would love a featherweight, however, I don't "need" it so I can't see paying a ridiculous price for one. Some people lists them for way to high a price. There was a lavender one with white hearts painted all over it, on ebay the other day for $1750. It wasn't even cute or pretty. I want one that looks original. One day I will find one for a price that I can see paying, and will get it. Until then, I'll just keep looking and wishing.

    I agree! The red one is gorgeous and did you see the box? If I had money to burn, I'd love to have this item!

    Man someone really doesn't want to sell their machines huh? The red one has been one the new things where they take the old machine and repaint it loses value I think and you can get those around here for no more then 500 bucks. As for the other machine I have two just like that different years original everything including the books and I certainly didn't pay those prices and won't ever sell them even at those prices.
