Singer Featherweight 221

Welcome with me our newest sewing machine family member: my Singer Featherweight 221-1


This is the most beautiful machine I have ever seen. I was lurking on ebay for over a month to find one in Europe to not have to pay customs and risk a damage on the transport.


As I saw the pictures I dearly fell in love with it. I never expected a Singer from 10th of December 1948 be in such a great condition. The goldwork is perfect and it has only little scratches on the flatbed.


The scrollworkplate is so much love! <3 <3 <3

I got it serviced the last two weeks and picked it up on Friday. Comment from the old guy at the store: "These are really not often seen in this shop, it works great and I know, your weekend is saved now!" :)
Yes, it is!
It sews like a dream, no matter if it is cotton or the thickest batting I had.


Best thing about the machine? She only costs me 120€ including postage from UK to Germany. This was more then luck. Featherweights in this condition are sold from 250€ and more!

It brought everything with it, as you can see in the picture:


The manual is also in very good condition and explains everything as it needs to be.


Happy sewing everybody!


  1. Wow, was für ein tolles Gerät :D!

  2. Wow, WHAT A FIND ! A month doesn't seem that long for such a wonderful deal, but it must have seemed like FOREVER ! Congratulations........that's a keeper and a little workhorse; I've had mine for about 25 years !

  3. Oh, was für eine wunderschöne Maschine!

  4. How wonderful! She is beautiful. I love the scroll plate. My featherweight's plate is just vertical lines, and I'd love to have another with the scrolls. Great buy too!

  5. Die sieht ja toll ein schönes Schätzchen. :-)
