    My husband let me get this from Craigs list for my birthday-which is not for another month. it has all the original parts and accessories, except for the oilcan and 4 bobbins which is fine with me. It was owned by the Mother and she used to make her daughter's dance costumes when she was little. i asked if she would write down her moms name and when/where it was purchased so i would have a record of it for history since i'm the second owner. it was made in 1947 or 1948. it's in great condition. i havent run it yet b/c i wanted to clean and oil it before i played with it.

    What a thoughtful DH. Hmmm. Maybe he'll forget about this when your real birthday arrives and get you some other goodies to go with it. She's a looker.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! You will have soooo much fun with your new Featherweight. I know of a great book & DVD put out by a Washington State FW refurbisher if you are interested. Tells you all you need to know about maintaining & repairing your FW.

    SharonAnn, when he told me that this would be my present, i told him that it didn't mean he could forget about my birthday when it came up-(He totally forgot it last year(and yes he's still alive) )i expect some recognition.:)
    KatFish- i don't know if I'll name it-I haven't named any others. But if i did, i would name it Marjorie after the lady that was the original owner.
    Christi-Yes i would be interested in the name of the book and DVD. thanks everyone for the birthday wishes.

    I have a 1938 Featherweight and I just love it. Had it cleaned and oiled and it runs great. Just wanted to tell you that the foot control gets very hot. I was sewing one day and left my sewing ro0m for a few hours and when I came back, there was a hole burnt in the carpet the size of a baseball. If I would have left for the day, I might not have a house to live in right now. I took it to a Sew and Vac place and they replaced it with a plastic foot. I didn't realize the foot control would get that hot...Maybe everyone that owns a Singer Featherweight might check their's the next time they sew with it. Sewmom, I hope you enjoy your's as much as I do...Happy Birthday
