Our Friends of the Featherweight Needle

Friends of the Featherweight Needle

Below are some different websites and resources we have referred to over the years. Whether it be a group forum for fellow Featherweight enthusiasts, another Singer Sewing Machine collector with their own supply of goods for sale, or some of April's favorite fabric and pattern websites, it has been a pleasure to work with all that we list here.

Singer Featherweight Facebook Group - a forum for Featherweight enthusiasts to share
ISMACS - International Sewing Machine and Collectors' Society
Featherweight Fanatics - pioneer FW page with links to the Featherweight Digest
Glenn Williams - based in Florida, another reputable source for FW Service

*Singer Featherweight machines were produced by the Singer company in black, white/green and tan only. Any other colors are the result of subsequent repainting. Graham Forsdyke did not deal in any repainted machines. While the two Featherweight restorers listed above come highly recommended by many of our customers, it does create a different buying market with as many repainted machines as there are available now. If a black, tan or white machine you are going to buy looks "brand new" but is being sold as all original, be inquisitive and do your research.
