This First-Year Singer Featherweight 222K is in very nice condition! Completely serviced, cleaned, polished, electrically inspected, timed, tuned, and sampled - rest assured, this Featherweight 222 will be ready to sew right out of the case. This machine is fitted with its original 220-volt motor that has been rewound to work at optimum speed and torque. You will not have to worry about needing an electrical converter. We give this beautiful machine a Grade 8-. Be sure to click on any image above to see the reflective beauty of this 222K. It is in great condition with some pin scratches.
Serial #EJ271*** indicates a commission date of November 18th, 1953. 1953 was the first year for the 222 - 20 years after the birth of the 221. The 1953 222s are unique compared to later 222 machines because the light housings have the older styled "Singer" decal that was used with the Celtic knot decals on the 221K machines.
This 222K would have also been sold in Sweden due to its unique motor and Swedish instruction manual!
If you've never purchased a machine from The Singer Featherweight Shop before, it is a rather distinguished experience. Each machine receives hours upon hours of cleaning, polishing, certified sewing machine service, stitch sampling, and overall Featherweight preparation for each and every customer. Our grading system is very, very particular so that you can be assured that the grade it is given is the graded machine you will receive. As soon as your Featherweight arrives to you in the mail, you will also notice how fastidious we are in the packaging care and wrapping - making your Singer Featherweight purchase extra special and something you will always remember. A guarantee, while important to include for your peace of mind, is another tangible reminder that we are here to assist you with any Featherweight questions, long after the sale.
Please take note of the Feed Dog Lowering Lever indicated by SEW & DARN. This enables free-motion embroidery & darning. You can go from ‘SEW’ing to ‘DARN’ing just by pulling on the lever and then lowering it down to the Darn position. This will lower your feed dogs (teeth-like mechanism) enabling Free-Motion work.
Bed extension removed reveals the tiniest little free-arm - perfect for tight seams and hard-to-reach places. On her personal 222, April was able to repair a little loop on her daughter’s mary jane leather shoe - all because the little free-arm enabled her to stitch inside and at the right angle.
All machines go through an electrical-safety inspection - of vital importance when making the upgrade, and most importantly, to have the assurance that your sewing machine is safe to "today's" electrical standards. All you have to do is plug it in and begin sewing!
The Featherweight 222 / 222K’s that we sell are always USA and CANADA (North American) electrically compatible! That is, they run on 110 voltage/current. You will not need to purchase a separate voltage converter

The machine has been serviced and calibrated for quilter’s cotton, so you won’t have to worry about tension when you receive your machine, but having a numbered tension dial will make it easier to set it back should you need to adjust it for any reason.
