M&D 27: Stephanie Socha - Review of Singer Featherweight C240, Hand sewing with Silk thread, Wool/Silk Yarn

Don’t forget to sign up for my Newsletter!!

Hellooooo there! It’s me, Stephanie today on the podcast. This is an information packed episode on quilting and sewing projects, hand sewing with silk yarn, my recent purchase of Merino Wool/Silk Yarn for a new crochet project, my quiz results from the Adobe Creative Style and a semi-review on the newer Singer Featherweight C240 sewing machine…I say “semi” because the only thing I have not done yet is actually sew on this machine. I do, however review the features, pros and cons and the type of sewer/quilter that would like this machine.

If you have the Singer Featherweight C240 machine, I want to hear from you!!! Let me know how you like this machine, and how does it sew, etc.

I also give several ideas for hand made gifts to make for Mother’s Day or for yourself or type of gift you may like to make. See the list with links below. I do have affiliate links below to some Amazon products, at no extra cost to you. Currently, Amazon is my only affiliate.

I hope everyone has a lovely Mother’s Day weekend!

Baby Quilt I am working on. This is my design wall, and I spray basted the top to the batting very easy this way. I really love Hobbs cotton/poly blend batting for baby quilts - (I have no affiliate or sponsorship with Hobbs - I just like their batting)

Review: Singer Featherweight C240

On this episode of the podcast, I review this little gem of a sewing machine. From my research, and many other users reviews, this machine is power packed with features in a compact metal frame body. The integrated even feed is the top feature, as well as the metal body and compact 14.9 lb weight.

Let me know if you own this little beauty, and how you like it so far. I would think it would be a great portable backup machine to take to guilds, retreats and a wonderful every day machine for the hobbyist and or garment sewist.
