Case Restoration

Posted by April Henry on

Over on the Featherweight Schoolhouse today (under maintenance), you'll find our latest video tutorial.  From a technical, how-to video standpoint, it is excellent -- showing you the entire process for how to refurbish a Singer Featherweight case.  But, I must say, from a Mama's perspective, it's rather adorable!  Our daughter, Ruthie became known throughout the summer on our Singer Featherweight Maintenance Workshop Tour as the little girl who taught case restoration at each of our classes.  She would personally choose a case at each class to use as an example to show this process. 

It's taken some time, but we finally have put her technique to video form, not only as a helpful tutorial, but for your enjoyment as well.  As a homeschooler now in the 7th grade, this would certainly fall under Speech Class, don't you think?

Ruthie will love to know how her tutorial has helped you in your Singer Featherweight case refurbishing, so please let us know in the comments below!

Yes, on our FAQs page, question #5 there are some suggestions and some tried and true remedies for a DIY on how to rid those mildew / mold smelling cases. You can copy and paste the link below into your browser and it should take you to the right page, then just scroll down to question #5.

  • thanks, ruthie! but i think i have a further problem. my featherweight case was in storage for decades at my mother’s house in florida and seems to be impossibly stinky with mildew. it’s not visible, but nothing i’ve tried will get rid of it. i even left a cup full of bleach inside the case overnight, and then for a week, but it didn’t help. my featherweight has been sitting outside its case for several years now. any ideas?
