- Product Description
This first-year Singer Featherweight 222K is in great condition, and it was commissioned on September 22nd, 1953, in Kilbowie, Scotland! 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 is from the third batch of 222K Featherweights produced, and it is specifically the 333rd 222K Featherweight produced!
Completely serviced inside and out - this Featherweight 222 will be ready to sew right out of the case. It is fitted with an original 110-volt motor that has been rewound to work at optimum speed and torque. A voltage converter is not needed in the USA or Canada. Be sure to click on any image above to view the beauty of this machine. It has been given a grade 8- and has some light pin scratches.
A free-arm Featherweight 222 has distinguished, and extra characteristics compared to the original 221 model. Click here for a side-by-side comparison of the 221 and 222 model machines.
- Take note of the Feed Dog Lowering Lever indicated by SEW & DARN. This enables free-motion embroidery & darning: go from ‘SEW’ing to ‘DARN’ing just by pulling on the lever and lowering it down to the Darn position. This will lower the feed dogs (teeth-like mechanism) enabling Free-Motion work.
- The bed removes to reveal the tiniest little free-arm - perfect for tight seams and hard-to-reach places.
