This Featherweight 221 sewing machine has been given the term "Blackside Featherweight" because of some color variances to their standard parts, particularly the faceplate.

Singer made other accessories and attachments that had the blackside finish, too, but the attachments did not necessarily have that particular finish when originally suited with the Blackside machine. One blackside machine may have attachments that are blackside while another may have chromium and still another with a mixture of the two.  The blackside value is not nearly as influential on attachments, however, as it is to a bona fide Singer Blackside Featherweight 221 Sewing Machine.  Quantity, peculiarity, and Featherweight collectibility all play a factor in determining the value of a machine like this.  Plus, this one is in outstanding condition!

Are you a Quilter?  Additional Quilting Attachments can be purchased, and if you need any Fashion Aids for apparel or ornamental sewing (i.e. Buttonholer, Blind Stitcher, etc...), we will prepare samples for those as well should you decide to purchase them separately.

You can also rest knowing that the Original Bobbin Case is most definitely included, assuring you of an original quality stitch all these years later.  It is a delightful thought to think about some of the possible things that were lovingly sewn on this machine in its lifetime.  What will you add to its sewing repertoire - quilts? Apparel?  Whatever you sew, I’m sure your new Featherweight machine will be well loved for many, many more years of sewing life.

This machine has been serviced and calibrated for quilter’s cottons, so you won’t have to worry about tension when you receive it. 

This would be an excellent machine to add to your Featherweight collection!
