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!
