I have 3 featherweights myself. Two are white, one is the original beige. My beige FW gets lots of compliments. I love them all. I use my white more than any other machine at all day quilt-a-thons. I actually sanded down one of the white machines (it was badly scrathced), and am impatiently awaiting my husband to paint it. I thought it would cool to have him do it as my kids would appreciate it when they get older. He has been busy to date, but did just buy me a Green Millennium system....so I can't fault him for not painting my FW!!
