 Recently I commented on a FB post on Quiltville's open studio about several Featherweights that I own.
I have 6 and would like to sell 4 of them. So after messaging back and forth w 2 ladies, I decided I needed to write a new post w pictures of the machines I have for sale.

So here goes. This is a 1946 Scroll face. She runs well. I've used her, and despite the handle on the case it is a strong tape job! I have bought parts for my machines here: 221 parts and they are honest and have a fast turn around.Even for little screws for the bobbins! A new handle will cost about $20.00, but frankly I just didn't worry about it. It's true what they say, grey tape can hold the world together.
AG881282:I'm selling her for $250.00

The next machine is a 1945 AG527124
She has practically no decals, but her box is nice and she runs! I actually took her to my senior quilt group last week. She was a little hesitant but after a few stitches, she was right there too! As you can see most of her decals are worn off in the front and there are a lot of pin scratches. However her box has been replaced at some time because it looks brand new. I'm offering her for $250.00

Millie Has been sold.
Millie is a 1949 machine that came to me with a seamstresses information, or at least it seems that way Her number is AJ192236. She has been used a lot, but still runs. She has a lot of attachments that I have no idea what they are or what they do! I really only quilt! Occasionally I might do a hem or a seam. She has a newer case, but for some reason it has a poke hole through it, obviously a SPINDLE problem. Millie has a lot of attachments and despite her (age) scratches on her decals, she still sews wonderfully. I'm offering her for $250.00

box with spindle hole. 

Sale Pending 
The last one is by far the nicest! she doesn't have any attachments, and her decals are almost spotless.AM162337 is a 1955 ( early 1955 from what I can tell) and I doubt that she was used much. However she does have a original booklet. Because I paid the most for this one, and she is the nicest. I would like to get $300.00 for her. 

 If you are interested in any of these machines you can contact me through here. I do have a pay pal account. I would expect the buyer to pay for shipping. It can be calculated on FedX. or UPS. I will not ship this through the US postal system, or out of the lower 48 states. (sorry my intercontinental

OH SO Blue

I saw this quilt and didn't realize it was by Judy Laquidara It's a Blog I really love. And she has Monday Linkups for what's on the design wall, or in my case the design bed. Once a quilt gets to this size I no longer can keep it on the little closet door I use for my design wall.

Hopefully I will get it done and on the Long Arm before the month is over. I have actually started sewing the larger blocks together. No fabric was bought for this quilt UH this year! LOL I actually bought these fabrics in December. Well maybe not as it came out in the Jan/Feb issue of Quiltmaker magazine.

This is my Grand (Drama) teen! She turned 16 this month. Hard to believe. Her aunt my DD3 loves to decorate cakes and made this one for her.  I loved the 2 pics I took of it so I added it to the blog. It was tasty too!
