I spent time again last evening looking at Featherweight sites. Then I decided to check Ebay. . . and there was a great looking machine with all parts and accesories including the case, exactly as old as I am, and there were just 13 minutes left of the auction. I deided to wait it out and raise my bid at the last minute and I got it!! For less than half of prices I was seeing at other sites. Woo-hoo!! It will take a week or two to get here, and I can hardly wait. dance

That's wonderful! No Really, there's hope for me yet. My Sarah weighs 27 pounds and I get sore trying to take her to quilting group.

Thats the way to do it on Ebay.....hate it when someone keeps raising long before the end. Has it arrived yet?

Way to go QBee! Congratulations. I also got my new machine on E-Bay! It comes this Thursday and I can hardly wait. Just ordered it last night!



Which one did you get? Or are all Featherweights the same? I know they seem to be the one machine all quilters want. A good friend of mine had one that she took in her motor home all the time. I'm so happy you got it.

Memaw - I think the old ones called Featherweight 221 are all about the same, made from 1933 - 1963. It appears that every few years the company made some minor changes, but I don't know what kind of changes.

Gimpy - gee, thanks. The machine and I were both born in 1950. . . I hope we're both forever young. lol!

For me anyone born before 1900 is old, otherwise they still have lots of gumption and you certainly arent old!

I took my FW in to be cleaned, lubed, and oiled. The sewing machine man said it's a great little machine and that I should be good to go/sew for a long time now. I haven't had it out to give it a try. I think that's what I'll do this evening. Oh, boy! Oh, boy! It will be fun to try it out!!
