I am so happy to introduce you to my new (to me) baby :) Isn’t she cute?!? I bought this Singer Featherweight from a fellow guild member and couldn’t be more pleased with my purchase. What I’ve learned about her so far is that she was manufactured in 1952, but not a lot more than that.
She runs great and in fact, I have already used her to piece together the scrappy binding that was used on my Happy Geese quilt.
In our house we tend to give names to items/possessions that have garnered our affection. For example, my car is Betty, and I do love it…so when I brought this sweet thing home, I knew immediately that she needed a name and Adele seemed to fit perfectly. I’m hoping to use this machine on sewing days where I meet with friends/family and won’t have to take my larger machine. It will also be nice to have an extra “running” machine in the house for friends to come over and visit/sew together.
I am planning on reading up on all I need to know about the Singer Featherweight machines so that I can keep her happy and running well for years to come. Anyone else out there have a Singer Featherweight with tips or stories to share?
