Dating antique quilts

I recently saw a rare "free-arm" version of the FW for sale on America Online for 50!

Prices at either end of this range are rare and most times you see them priced between 0 and 0, depending on condition.

Darla Trenner has done some research on these unusual Featherweights, and has posted her findings at her "Crinkle and Blackside Machines" website at Both American and British models are characterized by a fold-up extension of the bed, or platform, to add more sewing surface on the left side of the needle.

The fold-up aspect allows the machine to be tucked into an almost cubical wooden case, along with its attachments.

Some Singer attachments, such as the buttonholer, come with a feed dog cover that can also be used for machine quilting.

Featherweights come with six basic attachments: the foot hemmer, the adjustable hemmer, the multiple-slotted binder (which the manual says will apply unfolded as well as commercial folded binding), the edge-stitcher, the gatherer (for gathering and shirring), and the ruffler.

Very diligent shopping should turn up one or more Featherweights in your local area, and they've been known to travel in packs, and reappear miraculously out of grandma's closet or attic!

:) I have seen Featherweights priced as low as and as high as 0.

The Featherweight is an excellent machine for piecing, but it is not recommended that machine quilting be done on it due to the possibility of burning out the motor.

He lost the case but said it was the same case as the commercial model without the leather covering.

It was Army green with the appropriate military issue numbers stenciled on the box.

I have not doubt his story was true, but I've never been able to confirm it.

The machine 'looked' right though and did not appear to be a re-paint job." A black machine was also sold in Great Britain.
