    Importantly she seems to work perfect, and looks great!:) I am in love.
    You can go to Featherweight RX , I think the correct site is www.featherweight221.com,. They sell everything for featherweights. I purchased some bobbins from there.

    Word of caution. if you order a sewing machine to be shipped to you be sure to send the seller a long email telling them how to pack the sewing machine and make sure it is insured. I had one that they wrapped in one flimsy piece of bubble wrap, covered that in an old thin sheet and then threw in a few pieces of newspaper which did nothing to cushion the machine in the box. Sellers can be very dumb on how to package a heavy item so it does not shift inside the box.

    No I send explicity instructions on how I expect the machine to be packaged and have had great success.

    If you need to take tape or labels off an item, heat it up with a hair dryer first and normally you can just peel the label off.

    What I think about this seller is not worth printing nor could it be. What an egghead. I hope you let him or her know.

    Thank you!! and she has a twin!! LOL
    My friend had me get her one, (it was packaged to the max), since her's turned out to be 1952 also, I told her we have twins and took the liberty of naming her. Lisa.
    (Also her daughters name, so I knew she would not mind me naming her).

    Lisa and Lizzy have a play date the end of the month.

    Featherweight Singer Sewing Machine. The first portable? singer made. Has a great stitch for piecing, lightweight and small, making them very easy to take to classes and retreats.

    I think the postal service should stop some of this. There should be more rules to shipping things. My FW came packaged like it was going to the moon. You couldn't have hurt my baby if you dropped it off a cliff. That's the proper way to ship one of these special little pieces of history.
