This is a very hard to find red "S" Singer 221 Featherweight that is absolutely gorgeous.
As can be seen in the photographs the decals are complete and a deep golden color.
The serial number, ES 174166, indicates a date of November 3, 1960.
The finish glows.
A beautiful sewing machine that obviously has been barely used.
OUR GOAL FOR OVER 13 YEARS HAS BEEN TO STRIVE TO CONSISTENTLY SELL THE BEST 222K FEATHERWEIGHTS ANYWHERE.
If you are a quilter or you sew and never had the privilege of owning a Singer 221 you should consider buying one. They are a favorite sewing machine of quilters worldwide because they are reliable, compact, lightweight, versatile and let’s face it they are so darn cute.
All original US voltage Singer 221 red "S" Featherweights have Canadian motors.
The attachments and accessories are shown below.
The case is in excellent condition. Both latches work.
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.
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.
