The Register of Original Featherweight Manuals

Finding a matching, original manual to each machine is important to Featherweight collectors, and this register lists all 221 Featherweight manuals that we have recorded and the variations that we have observed between each of them.   Determining the date of a Featherweight manual is rather easy! In the top left corner of most 221 manuals is the form # and below that is the revision date. Some years like 1949 had no revisions and some like 1948 had three. Continue reading for additional insight into this aspect of Featherweight history. We can't guarantee that we have all Featherweight manuals recorded here, so...

What Is The Correct Way Of Identifying A Singer Walking Presser Foot AKA?

The Singer Walking Presser Foot, also known as "The Penguin" due to its adorable waddle while sewing, is one of the most sought-after Singer accessories. 'Penguin' is not an official Singer name, rather it was a cute descriptor applied by a Featherweight collector in the early 2000s. The all-metal Penguin walking foot was specially designed for fabric layers or hard-to-work with sheen or textured fabrics like tweed, napped, and pile fabrics - any material where an extra steadying grip would make the job easier!  Learn more about the unique features and charm of the Singer Walking Presser Foot "Penguin" here. Don't...

The Purpose and Timeline of the Featherweight Light Switch

The Featherweight's light switch changed slightly throughout the years in both placement and style, but it's one purpose never changed - turning the light off and on.  Most new machines have an actual power switch on them, but the Featherweight's switch only operates the light.  You will find that the motor will run and the machine will stitch even when the light switch is off. Below is a short timeline showing the variations in the light switch: #1 The Standard, Black, Rounded, Bed-Mount Switch - in use from 1933-1957 in the USA and 1947-1951 in the UK. This switch is...

A History and Modern Use of the Corduroy Case Insert

If you have a Featherweight made from 1937-1940, you might find this original, rare, and practical addition to your case.  Little is known about the corduroy case insert, as we have never seen any original marketing literature, but it is probable that one of the theories below speaks to the rarity as well as how some cases got this wonderful addition.     1. Perhaps the insert was simply added on a select few machine cases from the factory.   Singer rarely made machine cases at the same factory as the machines, but it is possible that the corduroy inserts were added when the machine and case were matched and outfitted at...
