    1938 221 singer featherweight - happy dance

    Ok, so I went to the Road to California and what do my wondrous eyes see but a gorgeous restored machine. It sews perfectly just as so many of you have said in the past. Itís iridescent purple/ teal in color with chrome plating. Itís perfect for piecing downstairs in the living room with DH watching tv. No more will I need to be holed upstairs in my sewing room. Lol

    Nanny, my Mom fell and injured her pelvis. She's in rehab but will come to my house when released. I'm going to bring my FW downstairs so I'm not so far from her. Win win!!

    What a find!

    Mine lives downstairs in the kitchen and goes into a custom made soft bag to be taken to classes.

    Love the color and love those little machines. Just sent my daughter's out to be painted (the finish was really bad) but she chose green.

    I have a red one. Her name is Ruby. She is a 1941. I adore her. Also have a black beauty a 1946 named Aunt Gertie.

    Love the purple. I have two FWs. One was made in 1933! It's not pretty like yours but it works. :-)

    I love both my FWs. I'm wanting to find another to have painted to match my car. You'll love her!

    Good for you, glad you found one to purchase. I've been looking for awhile, but never seem to find one I could manage cost-wise. I saw one on e-bay yesterday and I had a question about it. The bidding was supposed to close this afternoon, but when I went to look at the listing again this morning, it was closed/ended. I didn't realize that the bidding could end earlier. Oh well, guess it wasn't meant to be. It went for $300. Darn.

    My babies include 2 black and one white. I like the black ones best for sewing, but the white is so pretty. The guy that shows at the "RTC" show does really fabulous work.

    I have a friend painting Featherweights now. He's awesome & charging less than others but soon will be more. He's learning from a professional that's no longer wants to do it. I think it's $300 right now
    Give me a buzz & I'll connect you to him. We are in Jacksonville, Fla
    take plenty of pic of family & friends, keep tabs on loved ones but make time for yourself !
