Featherweight Case Refurbishing

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 restoration 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!
