    Is this one of the reproduction Featherweights that someone posted about a couple of weeks ago? Maybe that is why it is a "2010"?

    Yea, where did she find something like that, so cheap. I want one of those too. I just recently got my first Featherweight and I love it. It was made in 1952. :thumbup:

    She found them at a auction in a little town near me.She said they had a lot of them.Apparently found in a old warehouse.Some of them were locked up and wouldn't work,so they let her try them out and find a good one.I don't think they knew what they had.It isn't a old one it says2010 right on it. It has the Singer name on it also.It could be a reproduction,but if it is it's sure a good one

    When I saw the post title that said "I got one" I knew exactly what this was going to be. Congratulations on the FW. Lucky you.

    WOW....you got a real good deal on that machine. I was at the flea market this summer and someone was selling a feather weight for $50.00 that was in mint condition. I wanted to buy it but I didn't have enough cash to buy it. I am hoping to find one this summer at the flea market.

    Sorry, I didn't realize they still made Featherweights of any kind in 2010.

    Could it be the new Singer 118 Featherweight?

    http://www.amazon.com/Singer-118-NEW.../dp/B0007Z3J5G

    Singer has reused the name "featherweight", obviously to cash in on their earlier success. But this one looks nothing like the older machines. I hope it wasn't this one.

    This is a reproduction and there have been threads about them. Not very positive threads, I'm afraid. But for $10 you can't go wrong. Just remember, it's not a REAL FW, it's a copy and not made of the same materials.

    Katie, again, Congrats! We are happy for you! I remember when I got my FW. I purchased her from a very nice man in Canada. His name is Norm, so I named her "Norma". That's because he was so nice to deal with and was so sweet. She is a workhorse for sure! She is a 1957 model only 4 yrs. younger than me. I love old things and really appreciate back in the day stuff. Enjoy your featherweight. Thanks for sharing! :)
