My new "white" Featherweight 221K

I won a white featherweight a few weeks ago on ebay for $200.  From what I understand about white featherweights... I got a GREAT deal.  I brought it in to Upland Sew and Vac and they did a great job in getting her up and running.... she sews like a dream.   Looking at my yahoo featherweight group that I joined since winning this, it seems that most "name" their featherweights.  Hmmmmmmmmmmmm  now I guess I should think of something clever for this beauty.  I can't wait to start sewing with her.

Certified Quilt in a Day Teacher

In June, I spent 3 wonderful day in San Marcos, CA training with Eleanor Burns and her staff at Quilt in a Day and learned Eleanor's quilting style.  It was really an awesome experience.  Now I'm excited to have to come up with a Quilt in a Day class.  I'm thinking about advertising in Craigslist for a same class to have in my home in early September.  The plan will be to make the Quilt in a Day pattern, Pumpkin Grins.  I have to come up with a snazzy ad to invite some new quilting students - hopefully, I'll have time this weekend to put something together.

My new Featherweight!!

I won a white featherweight on ebay a couple of weeks ago for $200.  Everyone is telling me that I seriously got a GREAT deal.  I can't wait until I can start playing with's currently in the shop getting a tune up.  Hopefully, I get it back this weekend.
