Purchasing a machine from The Featherweight Shop is a rather distinguished experience. Each one of our restored and repainted Featherweights receives hours of personal care in its disassembly, painting process, reassembly, stitch sampling and overall preparation for each and every customer. As soon as one of our Featherweights arrives in the mail to the customer, the fastidious packaging care and wrapping adds to the unveiling enjoyment, making a Featherweight Shop machine purchase extra special and something to always remember.
