In the fall of 2014, I took a little road trip to Waterloo, Iowa to interview EllenAnne Geisel, the author of The Apron Chronicles.(click on the link to see that issue).
|I was writing about her for the Schmetz digital magazine, Inspired To Sew.|
|My friend, Linda P. went with me.|
|We were surprised that day to find a room full of women, SEWING ON SINGER FEATHERWEIGHTS!!|

While doing research for the magazine, I met April and Carmon Henry. A few years ago, they were a young couple living in rural Idaho with their two children. (their daughter Ruthie was on the cover of the magazine.) Carmon was a mortician, and April was selling Singer sewing machine accessories on ebay.
She started selling Featherweights, and she enlisted Carmon to service the machines. The business took over their life... Eventually, he decided to quit his day job and their whole family does business as: Singer Featherweight.com.
|The Henry family: Ruthie, April, Carmon and Christian.|
Since that time, my sister Ronda also bought a Singer Featherweight, and so did my cousin Jackie -- and recently -- Linda P. bought one as well...!!
Then -- guess what?? I saw on their Facebook page that Singer-Featherweight.com was GOING ON THE ROAD with their popular 3-day workshop. The closest they would get to my house was Hamilton, Missouri.
WHICH IS WHY I WENT TO THE MISSOURI STAR QUILT COMPANY last week...!!
