Just received a Featherweight that I won(?) on e-bay----very little packing and pins falling out of the box every where. The picture on e-bay did show the paint loss but not the mold and dirt-----I did plug it in and it just purrs---so it will be worth the work.....

Wow! I would have been scared after finding that in the box. But I'm happy for you that it works. I was sewing with a friend yesterday and she was using her featherweight. They do purr! Congratulations!

can u return to buyer or ask for a discount
I would let Ebay know if you are not satisfied
Is it worth what you paid for it is the first question u need to ask yourself??

bummer :thumbdown: :thumbdown:

Wow, that's pretty bad for Ebay. I'm glad it works but I can't believe they sent it to you that way :(

Poor baby machine. She needs some loving care. She's found a home. Take care of her.

I would def give feedback on Ebay. I could see where the thread could jumble around in shipping, but not the mold. Wear a mask when cleaning....
