I just love to tell people that my fiance found my Featherweight at a yard sale.  It was tagged for $5.00, but he bargained them down to $4.00!  I didn't even know about it until we got to the car.…Continue

My featherweights and 301 machines are my "go to" machines as well.

My Featherweights are my "go to" machines when my expensive fancy ones aren't cooperating.  I can always count on them to do the job.  Just think how amazing it is that machines made from the 1930s-1960s are still going strong.  Today's computerized machines can't even begin to compare.

Pam,

I also would like to know the brand name of the new 1/4" foot and where to purchase it. My sister got the Little Foot, but if this works better, I will buy it.

Pam,

Do you know the brand name of the new 1/4 " foot your Mom bought?  I would like to get a couple for my Featherweights too.

Comment by Brenda Ruiz on April 9, 2012 at 12:39pm

Hi Jennifer,

The machine is threaded from right to left. That could be the problem. Also make sure the flat side of the needle has been inserted with the flat side facing to the left. Hope this helps.
