Over 10 years ago, this Singer Featherweight was the first thing I bought from ebay. Ever. I knew I wanted one, so I signed up for an account and had to create a user ID. For lack of anything better, I chose ChristaQuilts as my user name. It has stuck with me ever since. And so has this beauty.
Singer Featherweights were quite popular in my traditional guild about 10-15 years ago and since then, their popularity has ebbed and flowed. Sometimes at a retreat or class I will see more than half the class using them. I recently got mine tuned up and I’m excited to sew with it again. So imagine my delight when I’m starting to see Featherweights popping up on modern quilting blogs.
After lugging my Klingon Battle Cruiser of a machine to my owner’s class last week (my new Bernina as my mom calls it), the Featherweight makes a nice travel machine. 🙂
