I'm not one for gifts. If I want it, I will go buy it myself. I'm a little picky (ok ,a lot picky) and I'd rather pick things out on my own. When Sweety asked what I wanted for our anniversary (he keeps trying) I knew right away. I had taken my Singer Featherweight in to have a new cord put on. My old one was frayed and held together with elections tape. There is a great guy near here that services and sells Featherweights so we went there a couple weeks ago. We took the boys and made a fun day of it. When I mentioned that I had always wanted a white one he brought one out for me to look at. Pristine, circa 1964, never been used. I repeat, NEVER BEEN USED!!!!!! I didn't take it home that day, but again, when Sweety asked what gift I wanted I didn't hesitate. We called him up and made another trip back over.
So, without further ado, I would like to introduce you to the newest member of our family!
Yea!!!!!! Isn't she beautiful? I don't know if you know much about "white" featherweights. Some, not all, but some turn a creamy shade of the lightest green. In fact, I was going to name my new machine "Pearl" until I saw exactly how much the green shows up. It doesn't show up much in the photos but believe me, it's there.She's not only green, but she's made in Scotland. How utterly perfect is that? If you have any ideas on what to name her, let me know. She's a fine wee bonny lass!
She came with a case, as well as lots of attachments. The case shows some wear, which is normal considering their age and the materials used. I use a little travel case when I travel with a featherweight so this case will be put on display and pampered.
