This Singer Featherweight 221K is stunning and is in very nice condition! Completely serviced, cleaned, polished, electrically inspected, timed, tuned and sampled - rest assured, this Featherweight 221K will be ready to sew right out of the case. This machine is fitted with an original 220-volt motor that has been rewound to work at 110v power with optimum speed and torque, so you can plug it in and begin sewing with effortless power. You will not have to worry about needing an electrical converter. We give this beautiful machine a Grade 8. The only amount of wear consists of a few faint scratches in the clear coat.

The serial number "EL539***" indicates an original production date of June 13th, 1956. If you've never purchased a machine from The Singer Featherweight Shop before, it is a rather distinguished experience. Each machine receives about 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.
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 221 / 221K’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
