Such a Versatile Little Machine

Have you seen a Singer Featherweight?

After much thought and consideration, I've decided to sell my collection of Singer Featherweight sewing machines. If you don't know about Featherweights they are light weight and great for traveling. If you're headed to a quilt retreat or class, you can just pick up the black (or white/green) box that it comes in and be on your way. The black machines were built, primarily, in Elizabeth, NJ, and the white
machines were built in Clydebank, Scotland. I bought my first Featherweight in 1996 and fell in love with these simple but efficient machines.

These little ladies fit perfectly in our cabinets.

I just love the white machines!

This is the 222K machine, a free-arm Featherweight. It was made in 1955 in Clydebank, Scotland.

The traditional black Featherweight is the most common since it was manufactured in America.

Most of the Featherweights have the original accessories, such as ruffler foot, bobbins, manuals, and some of them have tiny screw drivers.
