    Lucky you! I have been itching to get a featherweight. I started the year off with two machines - my Janome and a treadle machine that the cabinet needs work on. Then I went to the Angels for Animals garage sale & bought two old metal machines in cabinets for $15 each. In Aug my dad brought me my maternal grandmothers machine, and at the end of Aug my cousin brought me my paternal grandmothers machine, both in cabinets. Finally, a couple of weeks ago I was in a thrift shop & found an old portable for $2.50, how could I pass that up?
    All except the portable run great!
    It's a sickness.

    Here's the link to David McCallum's website.

    I bought both the book AND the DVD and took my grandmother's Featherweight apart and serviced it myself (not my husband, but ME!). I was so proud of myself, but really, it was just so simple. Didn't take long either and my grandma's machine just purrs! I have my mother's Featherweight, too, but I haven't serviced it yet. Another one of those things on my list of things to do.

    How fun!!! I have a very old sewing machine that my grandmother had. It's HUGE! As far as I know, it's called a Martha Washington... you are a collector, ever heard of it?

    I don't think so. Maybe if I see a pic. I have a hard time remembering as I'm more of a visual person, LOL. I've seen on craigslist a Martha Washington sewing table, is that the same?
