Being located in the beautiful mountain country of Idaho, we hope you can join us at one of our up and coming Novice and Advanced Workshops, where we will teach you all you need to know about servicing and repairing your Singer Featherweight 221 and 222 Sewing Machine. If you are near the Grangeville / Lewiston, Idaho area, and would like us to service your Featherweight for you, give us a call and we can give you directions to our new shop!
We typically do not take machines in for servicing outside of our geographic area, because the cost of shipping a machine both ways can be cost-prohibitive to the customer. It also increases the risk of having a lost or damaged parcel. Featherweights need to be serviced annually, which includes oiling, lubricating and setting tension. On that note, we highly recommend that you do learn to service and maintain your Singer Featherweight yourself... yes, you can do it! The Featherweight Schoolhouse has many, many video tutorials that we have created, specifically, to empower you to service your own Singer Featherweight 221 or 222. And, be sure to check out the Troubleshooting section (under Maintenance and Tutorials), because sometimes what seems like a major jam, is actually a fairly simple fix. We have several free downloadable Instruction and Service Manuals, too.
We also realize that having the hands-on learning experience can be valuable as well. Our Featherweight Maintenance Workshops (Novice & Advanced) are offered most frequently in the Pacific Northwest, but occasionally around the United States. Be sure to view our Events Calendar and join us for one of our all-day Featherweight Maintenance classes.
