    This is so cool! I sew with just a regular old, mother-in-law-bought-it-at-walmart, no fancy gadgets or vintage charm sewing machine (it gets the job done) but I love the vintage ones. I’ve got a friend who has a family hand-me-down vintage sewing machine that actually lives in a vintage sewing table (you can pop it up or hide it away in a little cubby) and it is the most charming sewing machine I’ve ever seen.

    What a wonderful story! I just acquired my first Featherweight. I paid a little more than you, but not by much. She is the crown jewel of my collection of 17 vintage machines. Once the vintage sewing machine bug bites, it never lets go!

    My husband loves collecting these vintage ladies as much as I. He does not sew, but he likes the thrill of the hunt and he enjoys restoring these ladies to their former glory.

    I love the story that comes along with each machine. I get to know their former owners. I love feeling connected to stitchers of the past. I love their quality, their simplicity, and their uniqueness. Each one has a soul. Each one has a unique character. Each one brings me hours of joy. I gave up on modern machines with their plastic casings and their soulless character years ago.
