A s a machine quilting educator, I have taught hundreds of classes over the years. As classes get underway, there is a procession of wheel luggage style suitcases with massive, heavy machines. That is exhausting to simply get to class, never mind learn from your instructor. I’ve even seen husbands and sons carrying bags and heavy equipment too. There is an alternative to the tiring process. Imagine a small, portable machine, that weighs under 10 lbs! I know my purse weighs more than that! These featherweight sewing machines make perfect little stitches and piece/quilt like a dream. Portability is the number one reason why Featherweights are so popular amongst quilters. If you don’t own one, it’s just a matter of time. You will wonder why you waited so long to buy one in the first place!
