Featherweight Update –
The featherweight’s back and running and all I paid for was a regular service charge. Yippee!!! I know I would be curious so I want to tell you I paid $300 for it at the antique shop (originally priced $395). The woman acted like I was stealing it from her, which I didn’t quite understand. I guess I don’t know the business She initially said $325 when I asked about the discount (remember she is having a going out of business sale) and then when I was running the machine she said $300 in a huff and walked away. At the time I was thinking – I’m willing to pay $300, but should I offer her less in hopes of meeting at $300. She saved me the trouble. When I checked out she practically threw the receipt at me! Guess she was having a bad day. So all in all, I ended up paying $375 for the featherweight. I think that is a good deal around here. I see featherweights selling on a local quilters e-newsletter every once in a while and they are usually going for about $500. I’m sure condition has a lot to do with the price and mine has a few dings. That’s okay with me- I won’t be too upset if I add a few more ;o)
Last night I started stitching some crumb blocks.
