I saw this lovely little Featherweight on eBay last week and was unable to resist!
I was a bit nervous because the description was a bit sparse and I'm no sewing machine expert.
I had to wait a couple of days after she arrived because I was too superstitious to plug her in (both out cars broke down the day she arrived and there was some very sad family news) but today I decided it was time give her a wee try.
She didn't explode when I finally switched her on, but she started sewing and wouldn't stop!
I got out my screwdriver and appealed for help on Instagram and the lovely Emily came to my aid with a handy manual.
I have removed the capacitors, oiled and cleaned her and she seems to be working perfectly! :)
I think I'm going to call her Martha - what do you think?
I'm very behind on Bee blocks and other projects so I'm going to put her to work tomorrow - I can't wait!!!
Have a great week!
