I bought this sweet little Featherweight at a flea market when we lived in France over twenty years ago.

I call her Isadore after her one time owner who apparently took her on a transatlantic voyage!

She still sews beautifully after all these years.

Here is a peek inside her case.

There is a reason I’m checking out some of my older machines. I have some news I’ll be sharing soon.

Have a great day!

    I love my Featherweight, Helen! Named after my husband’s Aunt Helen, who we got her from. She sews like a dream. Don’t know what I would do without her, even though I have two other regular sewing machines. I have her original case and accessories and I also have the original sewing table for her.

    I learned to sew on a Featherweight decades ago…my mother bought it new in the 1948-1950 timeframe (I need to check the serial number to determine the exact year it was made). Even to this day, I love this machine. I have a Baby Lock Presto II that is four years old, and as much as I love that machine, the Featherweight is a workhorse for plain old straight stitching!! And, it even has its own table (a card table with a section that comes out so the sewing machine can slip right in). I take the machine in every few years to get it serviced and it is still going strong! Love it!!!

  3. Beautiful! I am surely enjoying my new-to-me featherweight. It would be wonderful to know more of her history.

    A featherweight is on my must-have list but I want to find one in the wild. They go for $150-$250 on auction sites.

  5. Oh – now I’m very curious! I’ve always wanted a featherweight!
