So, right as I'm in the throes of this dilemma, Cathy Forcino posts a note on the Teddy Talk forum about new Featherweights she has for sale. It was a sign! Cathy makes beautiful bears and also sells the most amazing Featherweights---http://www.cathylynnforcino.com/. I felt so ashamed to tell you that I had put my dear great-aunt's machine aside that I never told you about AnnieMae when I fell in love with her in the fall.
This is my love, AnnieMae, that I bought from Cathy. She is an absolute dream machine. She only does two things--she goes forward and she goes backward, but, boy, does she do them well! I can "zoom" if I want or I can "putt-putt" along at the slowest pace imaginable. And she doesn't even hesitate going over seams. She's a wonder and a wonder deserves to be well protected with a nice cover, don't you think?
Well, I thought so, too. So I was thrilled to find Cathi Early. Cathi makes sewing machine covers specifically for Featherweights. She might make other covers as well, but you would need to contact her about that. But look how cute it is!
When Cathi makes a Featherweight sewing machine cover, she also includes a cover/sleeve for the "table" of the machine. Cool, huh?
Can you tell that I'm absolutely thrilled with my new cover for AnnieMae? I picked out the trim fabric to match our "art room" and sent it to Cathi who quickly made this little beauty. If you want to contact Cathi, you can e-mail her.
Heaps of Hugs,
