    I was reading the other day online that you can tell by the serial # on the machine when it was made!

    Wow!
    The Featherweights are going for 500$ more or less on Craigslist in Seattle area.
    That is a TREASURE!

    What a great find and a beauty. Along with a new belt, it looks really clean but you want to make sure that she gets oiled up so she will last another lifetime.

    I also have a Featherweight 221 and 2 of the original tables that they fit in. At a quilting show that I attended recently I also found a zig-zag attachment for the Featherweight. It moves the cloth back and forth, not the needle. Truly an amazing machine.
