This absolutely gorgeous baby blue 1951 Singer 221 Featherweight has been completely refurbished.
It runs well and sews well.
The machine is as gorgeous as it looks in the photographs. What a great present for yourself or a deserving someone.
See our blog here on our restorations. The first sentence of the blog is
"The only Singer 221 and 222K Featherweights that we have restored to a color other than black (the original color) are machines that are mechanically sound but are in very poor cosmetic condition."
These repainted machines have been given a second life.
THE 120 VOLTAGE MOTOR OPERATES SMOOTHLY. THIS BABY BLUE 221 FEATHERWEIGHT WILL OPERATE IN THE USA AND CANADA.
NO VOLTAGE ADAPTER IS NEEDED. The sewing machine is ready to just plug in and play.
The serial number of this Featherweight is EG705433. This dates the machine to July 17, 1951.
This machine runs very smoothly. It sews a nice stitch. A sample of the stitch accompanies the machine.
The photographs are of the listed Singer 221 Featherweight.
This baby blue color is an original 1955 Thunderbird color. Original 1955 Ford Thunderbirds came in three colors - Raven Black, Thunderbird Blue and Torch Red.
The stitches from this Featherweight are straight and tight with good tension and no skipping of the stitches. A sample of the stitching will accompany the sewing machine. It has been serviced and tested so that you can quilt, sew or proudly display the Featherweight upon its arrival.
All of the Featherweights that I sell, 221 and 222K machines, have been thoroughly cleaned, serviced, lubricated and tested. The quality control list is given at the end of the description
Featherweights are notorious for being damaged while being shipped. It is very important that they be carefully and properly packed. It takes over an hour to properly pack a Featherweight for safe shipment. I have packed and shipped many Featherweights and have the experience to provide safe shipping.
