Default Featherweight my new baby

Just picked her up today. Have only seen one being used (a few years ago) and fell in love with it. I was shocked when I went to see her at how small they are and how hard they are to find. She's a beauty and feet to go with her. The bottom of her box is not stable (worn) so won't use handles but handles and both clips to close are in great shape. image.jpgimage.jpg

Congratulations! They are fun to use. I like using mine and I don't transport it in the original box because it is 65+ years old and made with thin wood and paper. Mine travels is a rolling cart from Joann's - I need all the other items in the cart anyway.

Have fun!

Congrats! I love mine and use her often. She makes the most beautiful stitches, is quiet and I can move her to any room with ease.

Such sweet little machines, I love mine. Yours looks to be in pristine condition. The decals are great.

Congratulations. She's a pretty machine. I love the handle on that tracing wheel. You can buy a new box for her that looks just like the original.

Have you named her? I've named all my machines but keep forgetting who they are. :!

Congratulations, VivianW. Welcome to the FW Club. They are such wonderful machines and make the most soothing sound when they stitch. That click-click-click just makes me smile.

I clean and oil my FWs myself and they respond with those soothing sounds and beautiful stitches that we all expect. Enjoy her.
