My husband, the eternal shopper~bargain hunter~treasure seeker brought home another Featherweight he found at a ridiculous price $10.00, or so. When he brought this into the house, I seriously thought "I don't need another Featherweight. I'll probably just sell it."
Then I opened up the case and...Haha!....Fuzzy was not really inside, but he is not going to let an open box go unused. Plus he is not a featherweight, he's a chunky little guy!
Here was my real first peek inside. The poor machine was still threaded! Looky over in the lower left corner - the keys to the case are included. Those are hard to find. I only have one other featherweight case key. Cool.
I pulled her out and she was dusty! She definitely needs some cleaning up, but the decals look nice and all the workings seem to be intact. It even has a sturdy belt.
Then I took a closer look. This machine has the blue Centennial seal! My first Centennial! Wow - I'm so excited to have this machine. It's really amazing how each one of my Featherweights is unique and has different features in some way. Yep...it's a keeper.
It does have this one cosmetic issue. There is a paint chip on the front edge. Does anyone know the best way to remedy this? I've never had a chipped edge before.
Other goodies in the case included the original manual. It's in rough, but usable condition.
And the original accessories box with these attachments and a couple of spool pin circles.
Here she is after a little cleaning up. Hopefully I'll have some time to oil her up and try her out later on this week. Such a pretty little lady.
