Identify Your Manual

The Various Featherweight Manuals

Throughout the years that Featherweights were produced, the Singer company produced some manual variations. The principal handbooks given with machines are shown here.


     

Above Left:  This manual is the standard handbook supplied with US-built Featherweight Machines.
(This particular one has a copyright date of 1941.)
Above Right:  This manual style was supplied with UK-built Featherweight Machines.  It was also printed in the UK.

If your manual is like those two above, you can determine the date of your manual by looking in the upper left corner.  The number in parentheses is indicative to a month and year.  That date corresponds to the last date the manual was revised.  Sometimes they were revised for machine style illustrations, parts and attachments included.
