OUR GOAL FOR OVER 13 YEARS HAS BEEN TO STRIVE TO CONSISTENTLY SELL THE BEST 222K FEATHERWEIGHTS ANYWHERE.
Click on the link to see what is available in our store.
This 222K is one of the best of the best. It was not used much and when it was used it was used with great care. There is barely a mark on the finish.
It is in excellent condition.
The serial number of this Featherweight is EN138945 which dates the machine to March 17, 1958.
Finding a 1958 Featherweight, 221 or 222K, is very difficult. Only 10,500 Singer 1958 Featherweights were produced. Most were sold in the UK but some, with North American voltage, were sold in Canada.
The Singer 222K Featherweight is in excellent cosmetic condition (as can be seen in the photographs) as well as in excellent operating condition.
The decals are complete and a deep golden color. The finish gleams.
We specialize in Singer model 222K Featherweight sewing machines and offer for sale top quality 222K and 221 Featherweights as well as their attachments and accessories.
All of the Featherweights that I sell have been thoroughly cleaned, serviced, lubricated and tested. The testing consists of the machine going through a final 9 point checklist before being listed. The checklist is given toward the end of the listing description.

There are no missing or broken parts, no oily, brown cigarette smoke residue or other grunge to try to remove, no expensive repairs to be done, no surprises and no frustration.
222K Featherweights have the ability to easily lower and raise the feed dog using the sew/darn lever.
THE USA VOLTAGE MOTOR OPERATES SMOOTHLY. THIS 222K 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 motors on all our Featherweights are reconditioned to assure longevity of the most important part of a Featherweight, the motor. You can read our blog on how we recondition our Featherweight motors here.
222K Featherweights were produced with Canadian or British motors. 222K Featherweights were not manufactured in the USA. To be original a 222K Featherweight must have a Canadian or British motor.
The sewing bed is removable so that the machine can be used as a freearm sewing machine.
The light and switch both work as does the bobbin winder and the foot control.
The finish glows as can be seen in the photographs.
The bobbin case is included.
The throat plate is a graduated throat plate.
The case is in excellent condition.
The attachments are shown below. The manual is a reproduction.
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.
Many consider the 222K Featherweight to be the ultimate in Singer sewing machine design and engineering. This is a wonderful example of the marvelous Singer Featherweight freearm sewing machine.
