A Thread Cutter That's Actually Sharp

Upon arrival of our new Featherweight Shop edition Thread Cutterz, we wanted to make this quick and easy video tutorial for you!  This tutorial will walk you through setup as well as show you how easy it is to now cut thread when piecing or sewing on your Singer Featherweight 221 or 221. We all know the vintage original Singer thread cutter and even the new replica thread cutter (both designed to wrap around the presser bar) are more for nostalgic purposes than they are for actually cutting...(we have often referred to the old ones as "thread-frayers"!)  This new Featherweight...

Day in Seattle

After our workshops in Olympia, Washington we took a day with the kids and visited the iconic Pike's Place Market!  A few donuts, some fresh flowers and the infamous gum wall were the highlights of our day. An entire wall... and surrounding walls, actually, of A.B.C. gum.  That's "Already Been Chewed" gum.  Nasty, of course, but definitely something to see. Better than Krispie Kreme, I promise; they have a "homemade" doughnut flavor that is so yummy! Carmon surprised Ruthie with a fresh bouquet of Sweet Peas... as you know she has always been our little Sweet Pea.  It was a...


2017 Christmas Recap

Every year we gear up for our 12 Days of Christmas Sales from December 1st - December 12th, and this year we thought we would post a few behind-the-scenes photos to show you some of your packages as they were being prepared!  We were in our new building this year - literally, the first day of our big sale kick-off, so it was a bit of challenge moving in, getting situated, and then set up for shipping all in one day, but we made it!  (Now we just need to decorate!) We had so much fun tying red and green...

Family Time in Georgia, 2016

After our stop in Woodstock (when we took our Featherweight Maintenance Workshop Tour in 2016) we spent several days with Uncle Charley and Aunt Sandy in Georgia.  We love them dearly and all of us enjoy just listening to their darling southern accents -- with "darlin'" and "sho'nough" being the special words we will forever remember as their terms of endearment.  All of us enjoy antique shopping and collecting together and so sharing several days in Dawsonville was a time we will always cherish. Our time with them just happened to fall during the time of Carmon's birthday, so Aunt...


Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

We are getting very excited for this year!  Get ready.... get set...... (12:01am on 11/25/2016 we GO!!!!) We will...


Washington, D.C.

When we started planning for our Featherweight Maintenance Workshop Tour 2016 we knew that we would somehow want to incorporate a visit to Washington, D.C.  Carmon had visited the city in the fall of 2009 and had wanted to bring the rest of us to see US history first hand ever since.  It was certainly a lot to take in and we had high hopes that we would get to see many sites in an 8-day time period.  While we would probably have to spend several months to see each minute historical detail, we do feel like we received at...


Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

After New York City our family took an 8-day break from the Featherweight Workshops to tour our Nation's capitol and historical sights.  The first place we visited was Philadelphia.  It just so happened to be around the July 4th weekend, so there were several things we would not have ordinarily had the opportunity to see any other time of year.  This also meant that there were considerable more crowds, so some of the most-desired historical sights were not available for us to see during our one-day visit in Philadelphia. Independence HallHome of the Constitutional Convention We took a horse-drawn carriage...


New York City

We had one day in New York City, so we had to maximize what we could see and do... and it all had to be done on foot.  We road the train, the subway and walked and walked and walked.... and walked... but, we were able to see the Statue of Liberty, Time Square, Museum of Natural History, the 9/11 Memorial and all the sights in between.  We were worn out by the end of the day, but it was a fun to experience and see it all for the first time. Our first view of the New York skyline...
