I nearly had palpitations when Ant showed me this the other night on the Armitage page. It's coming up for auction next Wednesday (19th) and I'm only hoping that anyone else there doesn't know how much a Singer Featherweight is worth, ie: up to $1,000 depending on what their condition is.
After work today I'll be stopping by for a look-see and to verify it's working condition, fortunately Armitage is only a hop-skip-jump away from my work. Also, unfortunately Armitage is only a hop-skip-jump away from Ant's work too - the man loves an auction! He wouldn't have told me about it and if he was the successful bidder would present it to me for my birthday, but he wasn't sure if it was a Featherweight and needed to check. So now my savings might suffer instead. Still, it's a worthy cause.
You'd think I'd have enough sewing machines by now, but this one is really the ultimate. It's interesting to note that in my Flickr account, The Thug has had the most views and I don't know why, as people haven't left any comments - go figure.
Well, better go. Got a sewing machine to drool over......
