NEW SEWING MACHINE

I decided I wanted a portable sewing machine to take with us when we travel after I retire. I looked at some of the newer machines, but wasn't that impressed. So I decided to get what I really wanted - a Singer Featherweight. I found lots of them for sale on Ebay and decided to go for it!

HERE IT IS!

A SINGER FEATHERWEIGHT!!!!!!

Isn't it cute? I love it! Below I am testing it out and it works great! This will be perfect for traveling. It has a neat little suitcase that it comes in.

The best news, though, is that DS#3 safely returned from Iraq! We are so thankful and will be going to see him, DIL and GS Jonah this weekend. Thanks for all your kind words of encouragement and prayers for him while he was in the middle east.

So glad you have your loved one home safely from Iraq.
I used to have two of the Singer Featherweights. Sold both. I am sorry that I did not keep one of them. I wasn't using them and sold the last one when we downsized.

I am glad your dear son returned safe and hopefully sound to his family. Enjoy!
And the Featherweight machine is VERY cute.
Quiltgreetings, Cisca.

That is great news about your son getting back to the States. I hope he will be able to stay here now and get some quality down time with his family.

That is a sweet featherweight and sure to bring you many hours of enjoyment. Everyone I know that has one just loves it.

I just love your little cutie, I know you will enjoy it when you travel, since it is a little featherweight.

Yipee -- what wonderful news about your son's safe return! Very cute little machine -- I hope you have a great time making beautiful quilts with it!

I know your son's return is an answer to prayer. My heart sings with yours! You will love the Featherweight. At one point I had two! I finally decided it was sinful to be that selfish so I sold one. But I would never part with my 1937 one - I've had it for at least 10 years and it goes in the camper with me when we travel. blessings, marlene

Please tell your son "Thank You" for me and my family. We are grateful beyond words that because of him we can sleep safe at night.

My 22yo dd must have replaced him, she's been there just 1 month. I'm holding my breath, just can't help it.

Congrats on the cute-as-a-bug featherweight!

Love seeing pictures of antique sewing machines...I have a featherweight I adore. I use it for piecing more than any of my other sewing machines. It's perfect to haul into the kitchen to sew and get away from the kiddos for a little bit! :)
