What's New in The Featherweight Shop Vintage Collection - June 2022
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 June 2022, here are some of our recent finds:
We delight in finding employee pins from Singer like this '5 year' service pin. Click here to see if we have any original Singer employee years of service pins.
Most are familiar with the rare and collectible Centennial Singer tape measures, but this one is particularly unique as it features the word 'OVER' and doesn't have 1951 written on it, indicating it was made and sold after Singer's 100-year anniversary in 1951. The photo below shows the more common Centennial tape measure on the right. Click here to see if we have any original Centennial tape measures for sale.
This darling brochure came from Singer in the UK and was likely printed in the 1930s prior to the Singer Featherweight being sold in the UK.
Most Singer attachment boxes here in the USA were cardboard, but metal ones were included with Singer machines sold in many other countries, like this one originally included with a 66 Singer from Germany.
This is a rare original oil can from France that we are pleased to have in our collection.
Singer made their pattern tracing wheels in a variety of different styles and finishes, and this rare one came from France as they were transitioning from their metal folding tracing wheels to the fixed handle plastic type ones.

We have a large collection of vintage Singer wrenches here in the shop, and this unique addition can loosen three different bolt sizes.
Perhaps our favorite find this month - this photo collection of UK war heroes was printed by Singer and contains their advertising as well as a brief bio on each hero. This is truly a marvelous addition to our collection and the only such packet we have ever seen.
