I am the proud owner of a featherweight 221 born in year 1947! It's in used condition,but I think it is never been used after the 50s. It needed a tune up kit. ( to be ordered at http://www.221parts.com/) My DH loves old machines. So I thought he would be the right person to hand a tune up kit, my featherweight, and the rest would follow :-)
A few minutes and a cup of coffees later, a happy mom behind her machine :-)
My dear friend Dawn surprised me with solids she bought in Lancaster. Especially a brown color attracted my eye :-)
Inspired by the tripp to the mill I had to make an Amish quilt.
a bit later...... it needs a bit more......
After searching the web I found this picture. Yes it needs blue! Just a little bit.
And here it is: My first top on my featherweight. Now it has to come alive with my quilting stitches!
