Although I know you may be getting tired of this topic -- apparently, THERE IS NO END TO MY FEATHERWEIGHT LOVE. And the stories just keep coming. (Please note -- I do try to limit my Featherweight blogs to once a week.)
To review -- Deborah bought her FIRST Featherweight the week after our Sisters Sewing Retreat in July. She drove all the way to St. Louis to buy a WHITE Featherweight.(see this link)...
The same week she bought her White Featherweight, she saw a 1953 Featherweight WITH A TABLE listed in Davenport, Iowa, on Craigslist. That happens to be her birthday year -- and before that moment in time, none of us realized there was any such thing as a Featherweight table??!!
I went with her to look at the machine/table. But the price was $675. And when we went to see it, the machine was kind of rough...the belt was broken, there was no case...so, Deb took a pass.
Then, three weeks later -- I saw the very same sewing machine and table listed on eBay -- still for $675. The guy had tried to glue the belt together... hummm...
The listing ran out, and the guy never got a bid. Deb still had his cellphone number, so she called and offered him $325.
|But maybe the BEST PART of Deb's deal is the folding Singer Featherweight table. WHICH WAS IN NEARLY PERFECT CONDITION.|
|Deb invited us all over for dinner. She made shrimp and grits AND key-lime pie!!|
|I'm telling you -- that Featherweight fits SO PERFECTLY into the table top.|

|Deena is doing some ironing....WHAT'S THAT??!!|
