She's Here! Meet Madeline Fiona Featherweight

Isn't she beautiful! She's 60 years old and still beautiful and shiny and sews like a charm! Madeline Fiona is a Centennial Singer Featherweight. These little Centennials were made to mark Singer's 100th anniversary. I have wanted a featherweight for many years and so I decided that this was going to be my 50th birthday present to me!

She's a petite little thing. Only 11 pounds and about half the size of a full size machine and she came with attachments, a buttonholer, instruction book, case, bobbins and a few other little odds and ends. I found her for a very good price and wasn't sure just how well she'd sew, but after a good cleaning and removing a bunch of built up lint and removing old threads from her bobbin housing she just hums along and sews like a dream. I think we will have many happy and wonderful projects together in our future.
