    Smile Another FW? Someone needs to stop me.

    I won a black FW on ebay last week. Hasn't even come in yet. I found a FW on Craigslist and the owner just dropped the price $50. . . AND I just bid on a white FW on Ebay.

    My logic (or excuse as others would call it) is that I have two teenage granddaughters that can sew and wouldn't it be cute to give them each a FW?

    or maybe I'll keep them for myself.

    I must be slow on the uptake.. I haven't found one yet.. Think I need to look harder.. I saw one at the Stormville flea market, but didn't know much about them at the time.. It was only $150.. and I thought that was too much.. My mistake.. ughh.. You guys are really a bad influence on me.. Ha ha ha..

    I am ashamed to admit, the featherweight auction bug has bitten me. I need to sew on one now before my husband leaves me.

    I know the feeling. I intended to buy ONE! Five machines later, a 1947 and 1949 black, a 1951 Centennial, a white 1964 and a black 1961 222, I think I'm finished. Oh!...well, there's always that elusive tan one I'd like to find! LOL

    Oh my goodness! I need to move to another part of the country. Blessings to everyone who is lucky enough to have these beautiful little machines and happy hunting to those of us still wishing for one.

    I just had to have a featherweight to take to classes...and somehow I ended up with 3! They do sew nicely, though.
