Like many quilters, I own a Singer Featherweight sewing machine. It’s a champ. I’ve done a lot of piecing on it and I agree with the experts who say it makes the best straight stitch of all time.
I live in Nebraska, home to International Quilt Study Center & Museum, where I’m involved in Friends of IQSCM. We support the mission of the museum through fundraising, educational opportunities, and social events.
Last week, we sponsored a three-day event called Featherweight Frenzy. It featured acclaimed Featherweight experts Nova Montgomery and J.C. Elliott—together!—for the first time. It was really something. Today’s topic is J.C. Elliott and his collection of Featherweight sewing machines.
