    My husband bought his mother a Singer featherweight when he was still in highschool. She used it a few times and then packed it away. Went to see his parents today and she surprised me with it! WOW!!! I was so surprised! Been wanting one for quite some time - has 6 feet and works like a dream. Hubby tried it out and everything sounds quiet! Can hardly wait to try it out tomorrow. Have downloaded the manual for it and for some of the feet!

    Enjoy looking! (Checked on when it was made - and it is the June 1950 anniversary edition!)

    Very clean and just a few marks on it

    6 bobbins and the feet attachments - most bobbins had 3-4 different colors of thread on them. LOL so glad we decided to empty them before using them.

    Thinking about naming her after hubby's mom "Esther" - but will work with her a bit and see. :) Hope she is as sweet as my M-I-L!

    Your husband giving that machine to his mom all those years ago, and now it coming to you must make it extra special. I am so happy that you have such a beautiful featherweight. It obviously was meant to be yours!!!
    Use it and love it.

    Do the featherweights quilt well? From what I can see - you can get a darning foot and a walking foot and the feed dog cover - but curious is it handles the quilting?

    Thanks for looking everyone and all the great comments! I am so excited to try her out tomorrow. Starting a new quilt tomorrow and thought I would try her out.
