We have been actively Selling Singer Featherweight Model 221 and 222 Portable Electric Sewing Machines online for the last 21 years!



We just received the Featherlight 221 we ordered. It was packed better than a computer or television. It was secure and arrived in the great shape you said it was. As soon as Ginger finishes quilting her current project on the long arm she plans on getting down to business with the new machine. I appreciate your honesty and your speed of delivery. I have a feeling this won’t be the only 221 we purchase from you. Many thanks from a satisfied customer.   Bruce and Ginger

Hello Carole!  Just to let you know I received my Featherweight this afternoon and I just love it.  I've read the whole book and threaded it and stitched on some muslin scraps.  It is so quiet-especially compared to my new machines!  Our quilting group is making a sampler and I plan to piece all of the blocks on my "baby"!  It is so exciting!  Thank you again for everything.  That machine was very well packed!  It arrived in great shape!  I have told all of my sewing friends where I found my machine!  You have been a pleasure to deal with and I am so delighted you had the machine I wanted to buy.    Rosemary G.

Larry and Carole. wrote to say how satisfied i am with the featherweight. it is all of a 8.5 rating, to tell you the truth i was expecting to buy a new felt oil pad, base cushions, brushes for the motor, (and having to clean the commutator on the armature) maybe a belt. or other things that i can't remember at this minute. this was definitely plug and play! i didn't ask any questions because i asumed you wouldn't go that far. i mean really just how much could i expect ? well i couldn't get over what a great purchase i made. it is a beautiful machine that i am proud of, and proud of the people i bought it from. God Bless Guido

Hi Carole: Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that my sewing machine arrived yesterday! It is soooo beautiful, I am really looking forward to using it this weekend...and all the attachments...this is going to be fun!  It was wonderful to chat with you and do business with you!!!!  Thank you,   Maureen R.

Finally had a chance to sit down & say thank you for sending me my little machine in excellent condition. My husband ordered it for me at Christmas & I thought it was rather pricey, but it was certainly everything you said it was. It still holds true that you get what you pay for.....in excellent condition just as your website stated.  I am very satisfied with everything.  You may use this email in part or entirety for any of your advertising.  Thanks again for the excellent service & quality....may you prosper & find many more FWs!!!!!    Charlotte S.

Hi Carol,  I received my machine today and am very pleased.  I have already sewn with it and it sews beautifully.  I was really nervous about buying over internet but you have calmed my fears.  Hope to maybe do business with you again.    Nancy P.

Carole and Larry,  I received my featherweight today.  I LOVE IT.  It is everything you said it would be.  I took the book, wound a bobbin, threaded it and sewed on it already.  It purred like a kitten.  Beautiful  Thank you so much.    Carrie H.

Hi Carole-The sewing machine arrived this afternoon, and it is wonderful.  It sews beautifully and looks great.  My husband can't believe it was built in 1952.  My current project is a wedding quilt for my daughter, so this Featherweight will be going back to work!    Moira M.

*****

Carole, I received the machine on Friday-sorry I didn't let you know sooner-busy weekend!  At any rate, I am thrilled with the quality of the machine and how well it sews!  Thank you both so much for keeping these treasures in circulation!   Phyllis P.

Hi Carole, I just wanted to touch base with you one last time regarding the 1948 FW 221 you shipped.  It arrived this morning in super excellent shape.  The shipping box was intact and the contents inside were extremely well packed.  I cannot thank you enough.  The pictures that are on your site do not do this little jewel justice.  The finish is very bright and shiny.  It has the usual pin marks and that is to be expected.  The servicing is spot on and is ready to go to work.  Although it is not "brand new", it is as close as one could find to that level.  I would give it a solid 9.  I have always wanted to give my wife a 'real' birthday present and this little guy fills the bill.  I am really happy.  I am ready to continue servicing it into the future.  I am an airline mechanic by trade and will have no difficulty with these chores.  Again, many thanks.  It is worth the money regardless of what deals you may find on Ebay.   William H.

Hi Carole,  I received my Featherweight this afternoon and it is absolutely beautiful!  You packed it so carefully and I do appreciate that.  I am so excited and I thank you so much.  Carol Y.

Carole,  I received the machine last night.  IT IS BEAUTIFUL!!!  Thank you for taking such care in the packing.  The machine was in perfect order when it arrived.  If you ever need a recommendation, I will highly recommend your company.  Thank you again, I love it!   Kim I.

OMG Carol GORGEOUS featherweight, I'm so excited! Beautiful little machine, great doing business with you! Was fun to come home from long day at work to open it up. Thanks again, much appreciated!   Jennifer K.

*****

Carole:  Oh my Goodness!!  She is a beauty...She arrived this morning---and she is breathtakingly beautiful.  Thank you so much for packaging her so lovely---I can't wait to get her home and try her out.  I have a feeling that this will be the first of a few....maybe a white one next?  Regards,   Joletta W     PS  If anyone asks where to get one -- I will let them know about you!!!!  Thank you so much again, it's been such a nice transaction.

I received the most beautiful featherweight machine the other day.  You were not kidding.  You really packed it well.  As you said, it was hardly ever used and looks absolutely brand new.  I am so thrilled.  I have been so busy, I just set up my email at home today, explaining my delay getting back to you.  My first week of retirement has been so busy, I ask myself how did I manage when I worked full time.  Again, thanks so much.  I love my machine and I am so glad I chose to purchase from you.   Diana S.

*****

Thanks so much Carol.  You have gone over and above what we expected!  Kate has tried out the machine a few times and says it is working great.  I will recommend you to anyone who is looking for a Featherweight!    Linda R.

Hi Carole,  The machine came today, it's beautiful, thank you so much!  I will do a little sewing Saturday.  I've really enjoyed our whole dealings with each other.  You have given me more than I could have hoped for!    Marylin A.

Hi Carole,   The Featherweight arrived yesterday, right on time and in perfect condition.  It was comforting to see the attentive careful packing job; it was well-protected in transit.  And it looks exactly like the website photos.  My wife is thrilled with her belated Valentines gift.  She threaded (using a thread doily, no scratches there!) and stitched out a bit.  You should see her grin and the twinkle in her eyes.  Very happy customers,  William B.

*****

Hi Larry and Carole  Just wanted to let you know that I have received my order today.  The packing was great!  Even my husband was impressed.  I fired her up and she sewed like a dream!  I am super happy.  My husband was very impressed with your warranty too :)  It was a pleasure doing business with you and I will wholeheartedly recommend you to my feathered friends.  Cheers!  Cindy W.

Hi Mrs. Meeker:  When I returned home this evening I had the best surprise I've had in many many years!  My beautiful treasure!  She was so splendidly wrapped!  I loved unwrapping every little parcel and finally set her up on that beautiful table.  Many, many thanks for your kindness and integrity!  If you are ever in the Washington, DC area, please let me know!  I would love to meet you and thank you in person!  All the best regards,  Kim O.

Carole, Yesterday was my birthday and my children and husband surprised me with your Golden Gate Featherweight.  WOW, is she a beauty!!  I just love it!  Thank you so much for cleaning and refurbishing it so lovingly.  It was packed with an eye for detail and care.  You are amazing!  I think this was the best birthday present.  I just love it and wanted you to know how thankful I am!  Blessings,  Rebekah S.

*****

Miss Carole,  oh my god!!!!!  My featherweight was delivered and as I unwrapped it very slowly I must say, I am dying down here.  It's BEAUTIFUL...It is so beautiful I don't think I can use it.  It really does look like it came straight from the singer factory.  I sent pictures to my girlfriend and she is drooling and said she is going to steal it from me...LOL  I really do thank you so much and for being so great to do business with.  You know it's hard sometimes buying something just from seeing pictures and then getting it and things don't look at all like the picture.  I am so grateful to have done business with someone that is so honest and doesn't hesitate to answer questions no matter how silly they might be.  Thank you again and again.  I hope to tell all of my friends about you.  Thank you again.  Have a great and blessed year.   Carrol B.

Good afternoon Carole.  FW arrived safe and sound last Friday.  I went through the manual and did a little sample sewing on that evening.  I had time on Sunday to do some other sewing so I wound a bobbin, re-threaded the machine and really enjoyed sewing with it.  Everything worked very well and I'm so pleased.  I am anxious to give the attachments a try as well.  Thank you again for all your work to get this machine ready for me.  I know I will enjoy sewing with it for many years to come.    Peggy K.

Dear Carole,  My machine arrived yesterday evening.  I have never seen anything packed so safely and securely!  It is GORGEOUS!!!!!  Thank you so much for your help in making this dream come true.  I have a couple of projects already in mind.  Sincerely, Cindy W.

*****

Carol, Thank you for sending me my very own Singer Featherweight.  You packed her with such love.  She arrived safe and sound.  I wish I had more time last evening to devote to my first project using my new Featherweight!  I am thrilled to have this beautiful machine.  Thank you for taking good care of this little gem!  Kind regards,  Jane S.

 Just wanted you to know how pleased I am with my 1941 Singer! It's beautiful-someone stored it well-even the case.  I will take good care of it.  It was packaged great and I appreciate that as well - thanks so much for being an honest, caring company - have a wonderful Christmas!!!   Mary K.

Dear Carole, My husband purchased a Singer Featherweight 222 from you on December 14th for my Christmas present this year, 2018.  I'm writing to thank you and let you know how pleased I am!  My beautiful 222 Featherweight is in excellent condition, meeting or exceeding its description on your website.  The case is unblemished with no odor.  The machine's finish is a lovely shiny black with vivid golden decals.  But most important of all, she runs beautifully with a perfectly balanced stitch.  I truly appreciate your attention to detail with the new LED lightbulb and Velcro fastener for the power cord.  I also want to praise you for the packing job.  The way in which you packed my machine for shipping was a work of art!  Every single jeopardized part of the machine or case was safely shielded and well padded.  The machine was securely padded inside the case.  The case was securely padded inside the sturdy shipping box.  I think it could have been dropped from a moving truck and still survive intact.  I am one happy sewist!  Thank you very much for everything!  Sincerely, Mary Beth H.

Dear Carole,  As you can see, my featherweight arrived (actually about a week ago) and I am just getting around to letting you know "she" is here, is up and running (as you can see), and has found a very embracing home!  I love her, what a dream!  (Have named her "Rose"...she just called for a name!)  Thank you very much for your thoughtful help in choosing her, your VERY careful packing, and for aiding in expanding my world of quilting!  Have a very blessed day,  Nancy P.

*****

Carole, She arrived today safe and sound.  What a beauty she is!  so perfect, clean, sweet and ready to sew.  The packaging was superb and every attention to detail was there.  I am thrilled with this purchase!  In the future I am looking first for a 1958 year model and possibly the Centennial.  I also received the terminal block you sent, again thank you for helping me get my other machine in better condition.  Best Regards,  Mary R.

*****

Dear Carole,  The 1934 Singer Featherweight arrived one day early in pristine condition.  You taught me how to securely pack a Featherweight for shipment.  My husband and I are in awe of the machine's condition.  You certainly did a wonderful job with the tuneup.  I can also see the loving care it had from both prior owners.  I appreciate you entrusting this machne to me.  I promise to care for it as lovingly as the two pervious owners.  Most respectfully,  Beth K.
