Vintage Featherweight!

Several of my friends have purchased a Featherweight for bringing to the retreats we all go to.  I have been waiting and waiting and tonight I finally won one on Ebay!  I have priced this exact model on several other sites and I did exceptionally well on what I gave for it.  There are a ton of extras with this machine as well!  2 people were bidding neck and neck and I snagged it right at the last 5 seconds.  I know 2 people who were probably cussing after it was over. But that is how it rolls.  You have to be quick!

I will be taking this baby with me to my fall quilting retreat!  I can't wait to see her!

Good luck with your little beauty. It remind me to take mine out from the box. These machines are so fun to use and play with.
Have you named here yet. Mine are Henrietta and Aunt Martha. Yes I have her big sister too, Featherweight 222, Aunt Martha.

Beautiful machine, looks like the one I have from my Mom. I sew my boms with it. There is a Singer Yahoo group and Nova Montgomery from TX sells parts for them and gives a tip every month. Lots of great info on her site. Nova's latest tip is to be very careful with the foot control. Wrap it in bubble wrap when not in use. Enjoy your Singer!!!

How wonderful for you. I have the option of purchasing a centennial 1950 one but am not sure if I really want it/need it and how much I should pay for it. I've researched what they are selling for but....
