Default I Joined The Featherweight Club.....Picked Her Up This Morning.

I've waited a long time, four years to be exact, finally won one on ebay, I had all of my friends and relatives actively looking and searching for me, to no avail. Bid on several unsucessfully on ebay before. Last week was my lucky week. I have looked her up & over,she was made in 1941, oiled her and other than a few pins scratches, she's great cosmeticly(sp?) & she purrs like a kitten. Still working on thread tension,but all in all great experience.The seller on ebay made it a whole lot easier. YEAH ME!I am so excited.Can't wait to piece a quilt on her. I posted over on the vintage thread also, can you tell I'm a proud momma.lol.

It is a beautiful and shiny machine. Love those f/w's. Almost the year I was born.

Congrats! They are fun little machines. I get lots of comments when I pull mine out of my camper, plug it into my outside outlet and sit on the picnic table piecing a quilt of making other small projects. It stays in the camper all summer then into my sewing room for the winter. Mine is a 1943 221 Featherweight my DH got me a few years ago for our anniversary. I've only taken 1 sewing class but it went with me. I took a Featherweight class also to learn how to clean and maintain my little gem. Worth the money if you get a chance to go to one. Enjoy!

OMG! We used to go to the Fla. Keys at Thanksgiving, and stayed at a wonderful Mom and Pops motel (It was so fantastic ---and a near thing-of the -past). I specifically asked the owner for a room where I could sew, as I took my machine. What's a vacation for????? The image you have described--camping and sewing.....I'm jealous!!!! That is the MOST WONDERFUL IMAGE. Good for you. You are Blessed!

(This response goes with the person CAMPING!!!)
