My New Sewing Machine!!

I am thrilled.  I just "won" this on ebay.  Dean just laughed when I told him that - I "won" it.  haha  That's what they tell you when you've bid more than anyone else for that item.  I hope I'm truly a winner, and not a fool.  I've been thinking about getting a featherweight for quite some time.  I keep an $80 machine at our condo in AZ and it makes so much noise it drives everyone crazy.  When I got out my old Singer 99 (circa 1925) and started sewing with it again, it was bliss.  It's quiet, every stitch is perfect, and I love it.  So....  I thought, hmmm, I need a littler one to take to AZ and to our Loose Threads meetings and, ya know, just to look at.  They're so cute!  Th
Is machine is a Singer Featherweight 221' made in 1935. It weighs 11 pounds. I should get it in 4-5 days.  Keep your fingers crossed that I got a good one.

Be careful! I just purchased my SECOND one! ROTLF! It was posted on Craigslist..and I almost felt like I could not just 'leave it there!" ( like finding a lost kitten or something!) Where do you visit when you are in Arizona? I'm in Glendale but my small group meets at Quiltz (just off the 51 at Thunderbird)

I got a 1947 (my birth year) about 6 months ago-I love it! I have a Babylock and it is a beast to haul. This fits on a table nicely with lots of room. I bet you are loving yours by now.
