    I got a table for my featherweight...what a deal.

    I went to spend the day with my mom. We love to go to antique malls. The one she picked today was huge.
    As we were getting ready to leave, I looked in a booth which had a sign that said "estate bargains". Behind a couple of chairs leaning against the wall was this table. The tag said "Old sewing table, $85.00 / credit card or $45.00 cash. My mom said I looked like a kid a Christmas. We sat it up and checked everything and took it to the desk and paid cash! Isn't she a beauty??? My baby looks awesome in it! Can you tell I am excited?

    She needs some varnish and has a small crack as you can see. Both easy fixes.
    Happy Quilting.

    Very nice! Saw one on EBay a while back from a nearby city so I'd be able to save on shipping by picking up if I won. Unfortunately it sold for almost $260 with about $75 shipping! Someone's pockets were deeper than my piggy bank.

    I love the way she sews. I want to learn to use all of the attachments. The ruffler and the binding foot look really interesting. I have a couple of quilts to finish and then I can play.
    Happy Quilting.

    These tables are great. I have one that fits both my 401 and short bed 301's. I love taking them on the road to travel and they are the perfect size. Good score!

    What a deal! You were awesome to be able to spot the table and recognize it when you saw it!
