Featherweight Shop Maintenance, Service and Repair
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! And, good news!! We will show you how! The Featherweight Shop now has the complete Featherweight Maintenance Handbook(short video below), which will guide you step by step through the routine service process with direct links to the Maintenance and Troubleshooting video tutorials on the Featherweight Schoolhouse. These self-guided tools were specifically created to be the "workshop at home", giving ease and the helping hand as you learn all the steps to service your own Singer Featherweight 221 or 222. We even have a complete Featherweight Tune-up Kit so you can be fully prepared!
FW Shop Service: 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. If you live near the beautiful mountain country of Idaho, near the Grangeville / Lewiston, Idaho area, occasionally we will service Featherweights for the locals; give us a call and we can discuss servicing time frames. Otherwise, for those living outside of our area, perhaps you can join us at one of our up and coming Novice and Advanced Workshops, where we will teach quilters all they need to know about servicing and repairing their Singer Featherweight 221 and 222 Sewing Machine. Be sure to view our Events Calendar for further details.
