Smile I am now a proud owner of a Featherweight 221!

I am so excited I am now the proud owner of a featherweight 221K ! She's a 1938 and my husband bought her today! He is going to rewire the pedal because her cord was cracked and covered in duct tape. He has done this before so I'm not at all worried! The only attachment I don't have that would have come with her is the zig zagger attachment! I'm so excited! She's all cleaned up and beautiful! I named her Eleanor!

Congratulations on the new FW. How wonderful your husband can do the rewiring. Maybe the zig zag attachment will come at Christmas.

I was looking through the boxes of attachments and guess what I had one in there and I didn't even know it ! It was in a box of attachments that was in the back on a shelf I couldn't see!
