    Oooh... what does this mean:

    "remember to thread from the inside out."

    Oh, and I forgot to tell the story. This FW (no, we haven't named her yet) was a wedding gift to a woman who never learned how to sew. It spent the last 60+ years in an attic. Hardly/ever used.

    All it means is when you thread your needle you thread it right to left - inside the harp toward the outside. Featherweight needles go in side ways unlike today's machines with front facing needles.

    I too got a 221 in excellent condition - looks like it has never been used other then a meldew smell in the carrying case. Mine even has the original manual but you can replace that on e-bay. The attachments are the foot hemmer, adjustable hemmer, multiple slotted binder, an attachment for piping & one to bind outside curves, adding french folds , an edge stitcher & one for shirring & lets not forget the ruffler. Wow! Good luck w/ yours, I plan on using mine at classes.

    I lost the QB name of the person who offered to send me some accessories. I want to thank her (?). I came home from holiday travels to a package of wonderful accessories for my new Featherweight. How incredibly generous! THank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

    What a wonderful gift, and appears to be in great condition! My aunt gave me her singer featherweight over 20 years ago, and neither of us knew at that time what a treasure it was. I still thank her for it every Christmas when I see her.
