welcome to esther ~ the singer featherweight ~ my beautiful new sewing friend

i welcomed this new friend to our home yesterday xo she was made in 1960 in great britain
i love her front grill xo
esher looks good from behind too...

she is so pretty and shiny new ~ looking so fine for a girl of 53 years!!
esther came w her original carrying case and attachments....she only weighs about 11 pounds...i know she will travel well, especially on quilt retreats and sew days and maybe the odd camping trip and  i hope to have her fly with me one day too xo
i bought this treasure from my friend nancy...she collects , restores and resells featherweights...when i asked if she had any for sale ~ she said YES...  about 17 ...i chose from 3 in my price range and i am very happy with sweet  esther [ named after my hero ~ esther clayson pohl lovejoy]

  1. I had to chuckle when I opened your blog today. We are in the market for a travel trailer to do some get always. (when at home there always seems to be customer quilts to do) so we went down to shipshewana to look at one we had seen on Craig's list. Didn't end up buying the trailer but came home with a featherweight we found in an antique mall there. I now have the travel sewing machine so all we need now is the trailer.

  3. we are definitely connected in some way... I just bought a featherweight on Monday. Crazy! Yours is lovely. Mine's a little beat up, but has a great story about traveling with the wife of a Dr. in the R.A.M.C. to Egypt, England and then to the US...
    How are you, are you going to the quilt show on Bainbridge this Saturday? I am volunteering from 11 to 1, let me know if you will be going, would love to get together & catch up.
