    This too shall pass.

    While I do not have a white featherweight I do have a white Janome 2007 that I dearly love and use constantly while my Disney 4000 sits. I even used gold metallic thread on the Janome by loosening the tension and it did beautifully, a task not every machine can do. I so enjoy and use many of the stitches built into the machine. If you can love your mac hine anymore than I do mine then both machines will be so happy. Congradulations and happy sewing.

    Is it the computerized one? I have it and it is an awesome machine and a work horse. Best purchase I've ever made regarding sewing machines.

    It must really be white, it is blending in with the background. Kidding. I have three featherweights and I would still dearly love to have a white one.

    Hint on the picture posting. I fought the new way for three days. The main thing you need to do is resize your picture. The new board only lets you post picture of two or less somethings. Not the actual size, the size of the file, I think. All the pictures I was taking was 3 plus so I had to fix them. After I made them smaller I used the Go Advanced part and attached them that way. Good luck, I know how frustrating it feels.

    Be sure to use the original bobbins and not new ones for best performance. My white one is so picky it refuses to work with the newer bobbins and just keeps breaking the thread.

    You may have a white featherweight, but I have one that I thought was white, and it is really a "celery" color. That is what they call it. Very light green. Comes in a greenish and white colored carrier with a handle. Sew really well and is so easy to carry to class or when we travel.

    I need more bobbins for my featherweight. Does anyone know where I can get the old ones or even know the difference when I'm buying them

    I think I read where the greenish white one is highly collectible. Don't remember where I read that. Congrats on having a little beauty. I have a little white one and I just love it!

    Just found bobbins for the featherweight at sew-classic. Here's the link.

    I don't have a featherweight, yet. Enjoy your new baby.

    I have a white 221K. I wonder if there is a color difference between the white 221's and 221k's.

    Wow! How do you see it to sew on it?

    I haven't posted any pics on this new format yet, so can't help you.
    Enjoy your FW.

    Enjoy your new featherweight! I have three - all gifts from friends and family and truly love them all! Bobbins are not difficult to find - I was able to order some from an Amazon.com dealer.
