by Ashley Fritsche
Welcome back to the Singer Featherweight Case Restore Along! If you are just joining us, you can catch up on Part 22 & 23 of the Case Restore Along right HERE! Earlier this year, we crossed paths with Annette on our Singer Featherweight 221 & 222 Facebook Group, showcasing one of her beautiful Featherweight Case Restorations. She was kind enough to create a very informative journey of her restorative process and we hope you enjoy following along!

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT CASE CLASPS AND LOCKS:
Q: "Where can I get a clasp or latch for my case?"
A: We carry the clasp part here, and the case latch/lock here, but they will show as out of stock until we have a fair number to make available for sale - about two or three times a year. You can sign up for the in-stock notification and you will be notified via email as soon as one is available. That said, do not delay when that notification email arrives because they are gone before you can even say "Singer Featherweight!". Otherwise, periodically check eBay or Etsy and be on the lookout for a totally unsalvageable case.
New, Singer Featherweight replica cases are available as well, at least until a clasp can be found for your original case.
(No, the clasps and latches are not interchangeable on the new cases with the vintage original cases.)
