I've sold my other two black featherweight machines, but I kept my favorite one. I know it was manufactured in St. John's, Canada in the 40's-50's. It sews like a dream. I haven't been using it, though, since the bed of it was a little small, and I have gotten quite used to sewing with my Pfaff machine inside the sewing table, with a nice flat surface.
Since I am going to Gwen Marston's retreat in September, I knew I needed to get this sewing machine in great condition to travel because there are no rental sewing machines there. As I was getting it all cleaned and ready (am I anxious or what?), I thought about an extension table to make it easier to use. I looked everywhere on-line, and then I looked on Ebay. I found a extension there, but it had already sold. So I dug a little further, and I finally found the maker of it, found his website, and ordered it! It came yesterday, and I couldn't be happier!
If you are looking for something like this you should check out Matt Reitzug's site. I can tell you that this little table is EVERYTHING he says it will be. Mine is the "mini" so it should fit in my suitcase quite nicely. It weighs under 3 lbs too, so that's great, too!
So, now, I just need to get the needles and the attachments together, and the machine will be ready. Well, maybe not. I've been thinking I need to make a quilted cover for my new little table, and heck, why not a quilted tote for the machine too. I mean, after all, it won't be going in it's original case. I plan on putting it in my wheelie backpack as a carryon!
