    I found this on craigslist under general on sunday morning around 5am. emailed the man and texted also. no response. the ad said keep calling until he answered so I was thinking it might be a scam...couldn't get it out of my mine so finally called at 7:30 and asked is he still had the machine and he said yes so I said I can come right now and get it. he was in bed and going to call back...yea right still thinking it was a scam so went about my morning and low and behold the phone rang and I ran right over. $60 and it is mine.

    WOW!!!
    Major score. Enjoy it!


    But, on further thought, I think the most amazing thing is you actually got a call back from CL seller. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    it runs very good. haven't had much time to actually work with it. just bought a husqvarna viking and going to take a class tuesday so will be learning it and then setting the feathweight up so I can use it this summer outside when I am in the garage sewing. we are outside most of the summer so this machine will be great for me to still be sewing all summer long. family issues has kept me from sewing but after next week watch out. charge on! O and forgot to add I am Blessed everyday and thanks for the great comments.

    It pays to keep checking CL :thumbup: That is an awesome deal that you got. Now that you've joined 'the club' you will also need a black one and a tan one :mrgreen:

    $60 for a white featherweight? SCORE! You'll really enjoy sewing with her this summer. Great idea to take the sewing outside.
