For my birthday a little over a year ago, I bought myself a Featherweight. I'd wanted one for a long time, so I stalked ebay and got really lucky! She's beautiful:
I've been taking it out of the box and sewing with it lately, just practicing. The tension seems finicky and I'm wondering if I have it threaded correctly. I wish someone would make a youtube video!
Every now and then I run across a box of attachments or other goodies at a flea market or on etsy.
I keep all of my attachments and the (reproduction) manual in an old green tackle box I got at a garage sale. I've seen vintage "attachment cases" to match your sewing machine case, made by Singer. Too pricey! My tackle box works pretty darn well. And matches all the attachment boxes too.
Something I bought had that original Singer 66-18 manual in it...I don't have that machine though. If one of you has that machine and would like the manual, leave me a comment or email me and it's yours.
Thursday...that means Friday is TOMORROW. Woot!
