The Singer Featherweight Machines we sell are all vintage machines, made between 1930 and 1965.
All of our Singer Featherweight 221's are in good- very good or excellent condition. They run well, have all been serviced and cleaned and come with 5 bobbins, a set of screwdrivers, a cleaning brush, and a carrying case. Some come with attachments as well. I personally sew on each one before they are put out for sale.
The black ones are the original color and sell for between $500.00 and $600.00. The same is true for the original white machines. Occasionally I have a machine for $475.00. The price difference is mostly due to the physical appearance, as all of them run well.
The painted machines are all in excellent condition as they have been completely re-done. They are taken apart, stripped, re-painted with 3 coats of high quality car paint, cured, re- stenciled, clear coated, re-assembled and serviced. They generally come with a new carrying case. The other included items are the same as the black ones above.
The painted Singer Featherweights are $1100.00 - $1250.00. The Lime Squeeze is a favorite, as well as the Raspberry, and the all time favorite, Red. All of the colors are beautiful.

The Singer Featherweight Sewing Machine brings back so many wonderful memories. I have loved these great little machines since I was a little girl.
My mother taught me to sew on hers when I was about 8 or 9 years old and I still have that same machine, and I still sew on it. It never misses a stitch. I took it to college as a young woman, and as a new mom years later, I made my little girls clothes.
Over the years I have collected many of these great machines. I have sold over 200 of them when I had my first quilt shop. Now, I am pleased to offer many for sale.
The Featherweight, and it is exactly what the name implies...light... it weighs approximately 11 pounds, a mere handful.
There are many outstanding reasons why the Featherweight is the finest portable ever made. Remember Singer Sewing Machines were never hurriedly manufactured in the old days, but precision made. They were produced for the homemaker and were made to last, and they have! Today they are prized by quilters for their unique qualities, and their vintage appeal.
