    Meet Maggie May, my new Singer 221 Featherweight

    Maggie May arrived today, I was so excited!!! DH unwrapped her while I was jumping up and down with excitement She came with a bunch of feet, buttonholes, the original manual and what looks like an original Singer catalog.

    I am so excited to play with her after dinner. I am going to start with the basics and then read through the manual to see how to use everything.




    Here is where I have a question. Does she look dirty to you??? To me it looks like she needs to have the "gunk" cleaned out and reoiled. Also, should I oil her before I use her??

    Thanks for all your help, I know I will have more questions along the way and I will be sure to come and ask.

    Read the manual. It will answer all your questions about oiling. Yes, you should since you don't know when it was done last.

    Pinkberrykay,
    Congrats on the new machine! She looks mint. And all the goodies to boot.

    Her name caught my breath for a minute; for 16+ years we had a border-collie mix we adopted from the shelter and we named her Maggie. When she passed on we named our boat after her.

    Hope your machine gives you lots of great fun and memories like our MM did for us. Only different, of course ;-)

    best,
    d
