    I Just Bought a 221 from eBay!!!

    I literally just made the deal with the seller - I offered $200 and they accepted it. (Oh and teh shipping was not $99, it will be much less for me here in Canada. Not higher than $55, she said.) Here is the link to the auction: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI...:B:BOC:US:1123

    Below is a picture from the auction. She's a 1953 and I'm gonna call her Verna, after my great-aunt Verna who taught me how to sew when I was 8. She had one like this that she sewed on all the time. I can't wait for it to get here! I can't decide if I will use this for piecing or what. I guess I'll know more when it gets here and (if) I need to get it serviced.

    I've been watching Featherweight auctions on eBay like a hawk and I think this is a pretty average price for one of these. I hope my experience is not like that of Nantie who posted in another thread here today (http://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage...y-t165426.html) that what she got from eBay was unusable and she was going to launch a complaint wtih eBay. I always make sure that I ask a ton of questions first.

    You'll love sewing with her. I love sewig with mine. I actually finished my 1 st lap quilt top on mine today. I love the straight stitches and how quiet she is.

    Hi Kate and welcome from NE Ohio, I'm sure you'll enjoy sewing with Verna. I got my Becky from E-bay last spring and have had no regrets. I really enjoy every second we spend together sewing.

    You just have to go with your God given intuition, and I think you did good! That is a good looking FW and I hope you have just a ton of fun with her!
