So, my hubby bought me an anniversary gift ... kinda. It is our 10th anniversary in a couple of weeks. I've wanted a Singer featherweight sewing machine for awhile now and I found one! Sew ... he said buy it! I love the hubby!
One of my former teachers, Mr. Meyers, restores them. He lives in Florida and was up this past week visiting friends. So he brought me his shiniest machine!
This is a 1957 model 221 Singer featherweight. Happy anniversary!
It comes in the original case.
It came with a box of attachments, extra feet, and a little pack of needles.
This is the original manual and sales receipt. It was sold on August 22, 1958 in Illinois. The lady who bought it paid $143.95 for it.
How much did I pay for it?
$400! Can I get a woot, woot?
I do my regular sewing on an old Husqvarna #1, my traveling sewing on a Husqvarna 940, and now my new toy ... a 1957 Singer featherweight!
What do you all sew on?
