    OMG! i won the bid!!

    just for fun i checked the goodwill store site, and lo, and behold, there was a featherweight with case and accessories. i put a cap of $175, and got it for $171, which works for me. i don't know what year it is, but there are no measurement lines on the plate. don't know if it runs or not, but there are so many parts available it's not a problem! i can't tell you how excited i am!!!!! YAY!!

    Congratulations! I share your excitement. I won the bid for one on eBay and it should arrive any day. You beat my price by $25.00. Do you feel like a kid at Christmas? I do. Have you seen Nova Montgomery's website? Good monthly tips posted and she has good inventory of parts.

    That's awesome for both of you! I won one on ebay about a month ago but I paid more than either of you. The plus for me was it has been serviced and good to go.

    i do!! i'd be jumping up and down but i don't want to knock myself out with boob-backlash! i truly know so little about this particular machine, but i'm hoping for the best. congrats on your new baby, too! ooooooo, now the waiting is going to be unbearable!! i'm familiar with nova's site. her fw's start at $350 i think, but you are guaranteed a good machine, and someone to back it. don't you feel like you're flying solo?

    Congratulations! You'll love it. I sew on mine all the time and then I got a white one that my daughter is trying to lay claim to.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
