Featherweight Wednesday

My Janome 7700 is in the shop getting its yearly tune-up so I decided to get some practice in with the Featherweight. After using the 7700 on a daily basis for the last year the Featherweight feels SMALL in comparison. That’s not a bad thing, just a variable to get used to. I’m not sure the Featherweight will ever be my go-to machine, I like my modern machine too much. I do want to start using the Featherweight for classes, sew-ins etc. though; the Janome weighs too damn much to lug around.


The Featherweights name is Cosima.

  1. This makes me smile because my featherweight is definitely my go to machine we are like old friends….since I’ve been sewing on her for well over 48 years… I don’t see our relationship changing. Even though a newer more modern sibling may show up she will never loose her #1 spot!

  2. Lovely to meet you Cosima. I love my Agatha very much and she does come along on sew ins and retreats. I recently got a 1/4″ teflon foot for her that has been a great help with my piecing accuracy!
