Thanks for that Woodbutcher. Yes I will definitely treasure it.

And yes, the 222k is the freearm (which is the 222 aspect) from Great Britain (the K stands for Kilbowie - the town they were made in Scotland). The freearm is so tiny - it's great for little sleeves etc. And yes it would be perfect for sewing up toys!

For all of that, and as much as I absolutely adore this little machine, the Pinnock sews better. It's super smooth and beautifully engineered. But lifting and carrying it is a major health hazard - it is waaaay too heavy to move around regularly. The Featherweights were a great leap forward in that respect!

It's been seven years since I first posted. Since then, my collection of Singers has grown to 14 Featherweights, four of which are 222s. And several more 201s. I also managed to find space for a longarm by giving away my hot tub, which I miss terribly. But I am cranking out more quilts now.
