  5. Oh jealous! My mother had one that she learned to sew on, then she taught me….. and then I just found out that she gave it away!

  6. Oooooooooooooooooo!

    ’nuff said.

  7. Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice! Lucky, lucky recipient!

    BTW, I’ll be doing a Featherweight refurb how to on my blog in the next few days, when I clean up the last one that followed me home. I just love bringing out the shine in these babies!

  8. Pretty!
    You’ve also won a Seam Allowance Guide!

    details woman…

  13. Very nice! And a happy early birthday!

  14. Wow what a GREAT birthday present!! Happy early Birthday!

  15. LOL! Sorry for the teaser, everyone… I was laptopless and posting from my iPhone while trying to cram all the obligatory familial visits into a two-day period punctuated with Canada Day and a bridal shower.

    My mom works at an antique shop so has been on the lookout for a good vintage machine/deal for me for a while… I’m just happy she caved and gave it to me before September!

    She looks really good although there aren’t any attachments, although there is the original cleaning kit. The foot-pedal appears to have been rewired fairly recently, and there’s a fairly-recent receipt in the box from its last service. I haven’t had a chance to try her paces out yet… here’s hoping I can figure out how to thread her!

    And Jilly, I will definitely be watching out for your refurb tutorial. πŸ™‚

  16. Aww that’s beautiful! Happy bday!! My bday is this month too… I wouldn’t mind if it came early the same way:))

  17. Nice! I can’t wait to hear your stories about using her. And it’s definitely pretty πŸ™‚

  18. OH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Happy happy joy joy!!!!!!!

    Bonne AnnΓ©e

  20. We’re twins now! πŸ˜‰


    check your email…

  22. Woohoo ! Wonderful gift, and one you deserve .


  23. Lucky you! I learned to sew on a machine not much different from that one (it was back in the 80s, when machines made in the 30s and 40s were going for a song, and my mother decided she’d rather have me use an antique than her finicky new machine). I fell in love with sewing after making umpteen Cabbage Patch clothes on my Featherweight.

    • Haha! I just passed up about six Cabbage Patch & kid matching dress patterns at Value Village on the weekend… I was tempted! I’m pretty sure my Mom still has my CP doll in a trunk somewhere, too…

      I got my start on a 60s Pfaff that my mom refuses to relinquish. Not nearly as vintage as this, but there are definitely some similarities…

    Very neat! Looks in good condition, too.
    “They don’t make ’em like they used to” goes for aesthetics, too. Why don’t they make them beautiful anymore?
