This 1949 Singer Featherweight 221 is absolutely adorable in delightful apricot with silver decals! Completely restored inside and out - this Featherweight 221 will be ready to sew (or display) right out of the case. This machine is fitted with an original 110-volt motor that has been rewound to work at optimum speed and torque. Click on any image above to view the beauty and restoration quality. EF566*** indicates an original commission date of November 7th, 1949.
This Featherweight was manufactured primarily in Singer's Kilbowie factory but was finished/sold in Canada. This would have taken longer than simply selling the machine in the UK where it was commissioned, so the extended time of transport and final assembly is presumably why this 1949 221 has the commemorative Centennial 1951 badge.
Purchasing a machine from The Featherweight Shop is a rather distinguished experience. Each one of our restored and repainted Featherweights receives hours of personal care in its disassembly, painting process, reassembly, stitch sampling and overall preparation for each and every customer. As soon as one of our Featherweights arrives in the mail to the customer, the fastidious packaging care and wrapping adds to the unveiling enjoyment, making a Featherweight Shop machine purchase extra special and something to always remember.
