Shopping Bag


Nashville, Tennessee, 2016

Posted by April Henry on

Towards the end of July we were in Nashville, Tennessee.  We had the special treat of meeting more of our friends from the Featherweight Facebook Group and making new ones at the Workshop. 

The screwdrivers there on the table are the exact ones we use in the Featherweight Shop and what we recommend at all our Workshops.  The small and long-shafted screwdrivers will be the most used, followed by the Safety and Mid-Length.  We have a full set now available for order... order all 4 and save!

Juandel came with her daughter to the workshop and they learned together.

(Nancy heard me mention how fascinated I was with the cotton fields and how much I wanted to see REAL cotton sprigs opened up.  She surprised me and sent some to me shortly after we returned home!  Thank you, Nancy!)

  • Hi, Pat — thank you so much for asking! The direct link to our Featherweight Facebook group is at the very top of the blog post, and it should take you right to it. Otherwise, it is called “Singer Featherweight 221 & 222K Sewing Machines” if doing a general search on the Facebook groups. Great question — hope to see you there! :)

  • What is the name of your facebook page? There are quite a few other pages that feature featherweights.

  • I am so delighted that I found you today! I bought a 1948 Featherweight at a quilt show last August and I use it all the time now. I love it so much! It is so nice to find this much support.
