My gift from my husband is coming early- it's a Singer Featherweight 221-1 Sewing Machine, made in January of 1948. It has the original foot controller, plus a new alphasew foot pedal. It's in "mint" condition - shiny paint and little wear. It even comes with the (rare) original booklet, plus some extra needles, bobbins, and other accessories. It also comes with the carrying case.
Now I just have to learn how to use it! But I'm sooo excited.
