Deb's second Featherweight came WITH THE FOLDING TABLE...So I guess I thought I was missing something...
But, me buying my second Featherweight -- AND THE TABLE -- was a complicated process. THAT INVOLVED A GOOD BIT OF RITALUCK..
I saw this listing on ebay:"Singer Featherweight with table. $325. Pick up in Wauconda, Illinois. Will not ship. "
One of my problems is that I cannot bid on ebay...(let's pretend it's a religious choice I've made.)
|So -- my cousin Jackie (who lives in North Carolina) actually BID ON THE MACHINE for me. And I GOT IT!!|
And, even MORE RITALUCK (that's how it works) -- Becky and I ALWAYS GET TOGETHER in August. I usually pick a small town in Illinois -- so we both drive 1 1/2 hours to the rendezvous point.
So, the day after Jackie was the winning bidder -- Becky met the guy in a Dunkin Donuts parking lot, with $325 cash. (this must be what its like to do a drug deal, eh?)
The next week -- Becky and I met up at a small town on the map -- halfway between our two homes.
|AND YES, NOW I HAVE THE SINGER FEATHERWEIGHT FOLDING TABLE....I AM SOO EXCITED...|
|Three months ago, I didn't even KNOW there was a folding table!! And doesn't Becky look terrific!!|
|AND here's my second Featherweight. Born in December 1950...and she is a gem. Perfect in every way.(notice my new purse, Gail Yellen...)|
The next day, I was anxious to take her apart, and do an oil and lube...and she purrs like a kitten. That little Featherweight clickety clack I've come to know and love...
And I already knew what her name was. Jackoby. (my two friends who brought her to me...Jackie and Becky.)
Jackoby and I are about to go visit John's family in Pennsylvania. THERE WILL BE SOME SEWING, people!! I'll keep you posted...
