What's New in The Featherweight Shop Vintage Collection - February 2023
Here at the Featherweight Shop, we have quite the collection of vintage Singer items. Due to our remote location, very few customers have had the opportunity to see the many rare Singer items we have. This series of blog posts brings our collection out for all to see what new items we receive. Some of these items may be famous and recognizable, but there may be other items that very few individuals have ever seen or heard of before. For the month of February 2023 here are some of our recent finds:
Original Singer Adjuster's Manuals are very hard to find, especially ones for the household sewing machines. We are glad to have on our shelf, this resource for adjusting and repairing the Singer 201.
Our Singer oil can collection is ever growing, and this small, French, HUILE can is a standout piece.
This unique Italian pamphlet from Singer details the enormity of the Singer building in New York and gives a size comparison against the tall structures in Italy.
This is a beautiful business card from a Singer agent in Connecticut.
These thread snips came from France and were produced for Singer by the Nogent scissor company. They produced much of Singer's home sewing scissors for France.
We are thrilled to have this watch that was awarded to one Dick White on the anniversary of his 40th year of employment at Singer.
This rare French book details the embroidery that can be done on Singer's machines.
Most of the rare Singer lighters were made by Zippo, but this aluminum one is from the Park Lighter company.
This clock is from Singer in Germany and now sits on Christian's desk. Still fully functional!
This is an Italian calendar from 1899. One side has a cute depiction of Romeo and Juliet with a Singer treadle sewing machine.
The screwdriver shown above is an example of the small screwdriver that originally came with most Featherweights; however, this particular one is extremely unique because of the Fabrique En Grande Bretagne stamp matching that of some of the 221K Featherweights sold in France.
This very rare Singer pattern tracing wheel was a precursor to the more common (yet still very rare and collectable) foldable tracing wheels.
There are so many fun vintage Singer items here at the shop, and we are very excited to share our new finds with the Featherweight community. Stay tuned for next month!
