- Product Description
Aren't these little White Featherweight 221 machines so dainty and pretty? This one looks brand new! Completely serviced, cleaned, polished, electrically inspected, timed, tuned and sampled - rest assured, this White Featherweight 221 will be ready to sew right out of the case. This machine is fitted with its original 220v motor that has been rewound to work at 110 voltage; you will simply be able to plug it in and begin sewing without an electrical converter. (Technically and originally named by Singer, the color of this machine is called "Pale Turquoise", however it is more commonly known as the Celery or White colored Featherweight. But, as you can tell from the lighting, the color changes depending upon its surroundings.)
FA226*** indicates an original production commission date of around 1968-1969 and is given an incredible Grade 9. Some of the dating for White Featherweights has become obscure due to incomplete records. You can view some of the records here. Be sure to click on any image above to view the machine for closer detail. Machine is just shy of perfect with a stunning original paint finish from top to bottom. The case has a lilac-colored hounds tooth interior with two-tone blue exterior. This case style is more often found in the United Kingdom than the USA. A machine this gorgeous with the unique British case will be a welcomed addition to any collection.

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.
Machine has been serviced and calibrated for quilter’s cottons, 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.
