Darlene Girton - the Featherweight Doctor
Show Notes

Darlene Girton has been making pretty things from fabric for a lot of years, but these days she has fallen in love with Singer Featherweight sewing machines. They have some unique qualities that make them beloved by quilters all over North America and beyond. Truly they are time capsules that we get to use and appreciate nearly 90 years later.

Darlene does some surprising things on her Featherweights, like freehand quilting, and even sewing light weight leather!  She's a born teacher, and so she gives a sampling of her vast knowledge and collection of stories, and be sure to check out her links below to connect and learn more.
