    1961 beige Featherweight 221J

    My Dh and I went to an auction this morning and found a 1961 Beige Featherweight 221J. Complete with instruction book, attachments and case with very few scratches on it. She has no noticeable scratches or anything. She purrs like a kitten! All this for $35.00. Color me HAPPY!...

    I have one exactly like this one. My sister bought in in 1962 but it is a 1961 model. I take it to all my classes.
