The machine is truly in gorgeous condition with just a slight imperfection in the clearcoat near the back of the needle plate. It was difficult to capture in the photographs, actually.

Are you a Quilter? Additional Quilting Attachments can be purchased here, and if you need any Fashion Aids for apparel or ornamental sewing (i.e. Buttonholer, Blind Stitcher, etc...), we will prepare samples for those as well should you decide to purchase them separately.
You can also rest knowing that the Original Bobbin Case is most definitely included, assuring you of an original quality stitch all these years later. It is a delightful thought to think about some of the possible things that were lovingly sewn on this machine in its lifetime. What will you add to its sewing repertoire - quilts? Apparel? Whatever you sew, I’m sure your new Featherweight machine will be well-loved for many, many more years of sewing life.
The machine has been serviced and calibrated for quilter’s cotton, so you won’t have to worry about tension when you receive your machine, but having a numbered tension dial will make it easier to set it back should you need to adjust it for any reason.
You will notice that this machine is fitted with a scrolled faceplate and the original case includes the tray for holding the box of attachments, manual, etc..
