    I was lucky enough to win the bid on this featherweight for $120.99. It badly needed physical restoration, though it ran fine. DH spent the week stripping, painting and putting new decals on it-did a pretty good job, I'd say. But-in the end, it did cost almost as much as if I'd just paid the regular going price! Still working on refurbing the case.

    so glad that you 'brought her back to life' - she's a beauty. Many happy sewing hours are ahead of you, that's for sure! Tell DH he did a wonderful job!

    Just look at it this way ~ you just rescued another Featherweight from a parts bin or landfill and she is beautiful now. Great Job.
