    My TWO new babies!!!

    My next door neighbor came over and presented me with two perfect and pristine Singer Featherweights.
    One was made in 1950 and the other in 1953...same year I was born. I've been looking for two more Featherweights to go with the two I already have so I can give them to my four grandchildren. I'm still in shock. These machines are almost brand new. Not hardly a scratch or a speck of dust. The cases are also in excellent condition. All the machines need is a servicing and oiling of course. I feel like it's Christmas!!!!

    Woo Hooo....I'm so happy for you.... I have a few FW's but I would love to have a FW made in 1953!! That's the year that I was born, also....

    ETA: How is it that your neighbor had two of them? Were they hers or were they given to her?

    I've been looking for one from 1953. That's when I was born, also. So far, I have a 1939 and a 1947. I love those little machines. The noise they make when they sew is so relaxing!

    Could you adopt me as a grandchild? Or your neighbor need another neighbor? I would love to give a beautiful FW machine a good home too! Maybe someday mine will come to me!

    Wow! All I get from my neighbors is an occasional view of a domestic ... and I don't mean the Domestic sewing machine!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
