    She came into my life on December 3 (won on a Goodwill auction). On December 4, we went to the local sewing store and got her a power cord / foot pedal. I did the happy dance so much when we plugged her in, her light came on, and she hums happily when her foot pedal is pushed.

    I know people name their featherweights, and it only took a moment to know this pretty lady's name is Della - after my Great-Grandmother. I do believe she is the one I inherited my craftiness from. :-D Thanks for looking.

    Welcome to the family, Della...I hope you purr when you sew! I think that is the sound that my 221 makes...I haven't named her yet, still thinking...

    The name TWILA leapt into my mind. That's her name, or at least in MY mind!!!

    Congradulations on your new member of the family. Not knowing what exactly I had, I was given a featherweight when I was in my early twenties. It belonged to my great aunt although she wasn't a professional...she was a seamstress. The machine came with several parts and I'm not sure how to use them all and unfortunately the machine and parts are in storage. The last time that I used the machine I discovered that I needed a new belt for it. My mom found one online for $20. out of California. But does anyone have an idea if there might be one close to the Atlanta area. I haven't named it yet and I suppose I should...so I suppose the only name to give it would be Geneva...for my Great Aunt.
