    Probably a good price. It didn't state if it is in working order or not? Also the instructions were in spanish? Might not work with American plugs. Some of the out of country machines have different voltage systems in their motors. It does have the scroll face on it which is the more collectible one of the FW's.

    It specifically says it will not work in the US. That was under the review section. You need a converter.

    Ah, just saw price, didn't read it all, but it still might be worth it to someone.

    The reviews weren't about that particular machine. They were about FW's people are reviewing.

    It was made in Canada. Does it need a converter?

    I don't see anywhere that it says it was made in Canada.
    I think you're reading reviews.

    The seller says very little about it, just that it's a FW 221 and the manual is in spanish.
    This is the seller's description:

    Singer Featherweight 221 Sewing Machine
    Case
    Spanish Instruction Manuel
