The Singer Featherweight portable sewing machine is a model made by that company between 1933 and 1964. The machine (model 221), adapted from an earlier portable, weighs about 11 pounds and has been found to be an ideal machine for quilters and other sewers to take to classes or "on location." Very quiet and sturdily made with all-metal parts (mostly aluminum), the Featherweight sews only straight stitches but it sews them very well. Even the oldest machines, if they've been cared for, still sew wonderfully.
The Featherweight came in a standard black model made in the U.S. The Featherweight is a low-shank machine.
The Model 99 is a smaller version of the Model 66 and was supposed to be more portable. It seems to have been introduced c1920 and production continued until c1950. This machine was made as a hand crank, treadle and electric machine. The hand crank version was originally available with a bentwood case but later this was changed to what appears at first glance to be a suitcase!
The 99K was a ¾ size version of the established full size Model 66K. It used an identical mechanism and many of the same parts
Review Colleen NS *****Received my order in under 7 days in good order. Very pleased to discover your offerings, a Canadian source to boot. Passed on the link to your website to friends who recently purchased 221 machines but also shared with our quilt group. The new LED bulb is illuminating my work and I'm happily sewing in the sun. *****Record Time for Canada Post delivery from BC to NS! Kudos for great service StitchintheDitch
