    My dh stopped at the thrift store this morning; came home later and said there was a sewing machine there. He didn't know much about it but he had taken a picture on his phone. Hmmm, looks kind of like a featherweight. Off I go to check it out and it was a featherweight 221. Lucky lil sewing machine has a new home with someone to love it. I cleaned it; oiled it; and it runs like a champ. Case is in need of some repair, but there are lots of attachments with it and the original manual. Monday was my birthday so this is my present to myself. :lol: :lol:

    Don't feel bad I don't either!!! I was able to find a FW 221 but it was not cheap and didn't have the orginal book, so you are a lucky lady! Love Mine!

    Oh I went off to a funeral this morning and then stopped off to get something to eat. While looking out windown saw a Thrift shop sign, so thought you never know. BUT nothing in the line of sewing machines....Darn managed to get several books to read anyhow. I don't know why I would want one like the one you found but its like a piece of gold on here that everyone wants to find....Where are you little machine, come to me slowly I will find you.

    Wow! At a thrift store??? Did you get a good deal? She looks very nice! How old? I bought myself a centennial model for my b-day this year (it was from my DH, but he doesn't know how to ebay). Isn't she a great little machine??
