In 1960 they came out with a tan FW. They only made those for about two years. During that time of history the twist was the way to dance, Elvis came back from the service and Kennedy was voted in as president. It's very interesting to hear what was going on in the world during the FW's history.
Dee also shared with us a couple of new blocks that she has seen demonstrated and that she can easily sew on her FW's. Here below are examples of taking two pieces of fabric cut the same size square and placed right side to right side, sew around all four edges, place an "X" on the back of one and cut very carefully and press open. Place another piece of fabric the size of the new block face down, repeat and keep doing this till you have the size block you want. Remember you are working with bias edges and the points will be cut off. Very quick way to sew up some very interesting blocks.

Thank you Dee for sharing what you have learned and happy shopping to those of you that are now hooked on getting at least one Featherweight. Can you really settle for just having one?
