Sew Beautiful

I missed Beth's sewing museum, but wanted to share this little treasure.   
My mom has been wanting to paint her featherweight for sometime.  She was just having a hard time deciding on a color.  She had it narrowed down to red or turquoise.  She finally chose this beautiful read that she had seen on a car.  And for her birthday she got it painted.  Didn't it turn out great!

  2. Sweet! Love the color. Did she have someone paint it for her? I'd never thought about repainting a vintage machine ... now the thoughts are just streaming in!

  12. I drool when I see the painted Featherweights but I don't think I would have mine painted. Maybe if I found one already painted that struck my fancy.

  14. Oh that is beautiful. I'm all for keeping "antiques" in their original state, BUT I don't think of my featherweight as an antique... I want it painted this color red also. :) One day soon maybe.

  15. Wow, that's spectacular! I would really love to do that to my featherweight, too - it's been so well loved that most of the gold is worn off.

  18. Found your site googling scrap quilts. Love your mom's red featherweight! Love your quilts, too, but that machine is just shouting my name. I'm going to check into having that done. What type of place did you have it done at? Car body shop?
