    Just got a Featherweight!

    Just bought my first vintage machine and oh.my.goodness she is beautiful and sews so beautifully! Mid 1930's scroll plate.

    I was excited to find this board and thought you all could share in my excitement! I am SURE I will be asking questions since vintage is all new to me!

    Welcome from Michigan..... you're going to love your FW. I use mine almost all the time. And, this is a great place for any questions you might have......again, Welcome.

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

    Congrats on your FW! They are awesome little machines. You do realize you must give her a name, right? Mine are Baby (my avatar pic - 1948) and Daddy's Girl - 1936. Welcome to the FW club and welcome to the board!

    edit: forgot to mention we always want to see pics, also.
