    1961 beige Featherweight 221J

    1961 beige Featherweight 221J

    My Dh and I went to an auction this morning and found a 1961 Beige Featherweight 221J. Complete with instruction book, attachments and case with very few scratches on it. She has no noticeable scratches or anything. She purrs like a kitten! All this for $35.00. Color me HAPPY!...

    Wow, you are lucky! I would love one of those. I have a black featherweight and love it. They sew really good. That was a great price too.

    Congratulations! What a fantastic find! I have that same case. I was sure it was a replacement case because I have a 1936 FW.

    Some of the last featherweights came with quite different cases from the more traditional black ones. My daughter's white featherweight came in a leatherette turquoise case and a friend's white one came in a gray leatherette squarish case with a gold buckle. They may look a little strange but they are the original cases. The last featherweights made did not include an attachment tray either. Any extra feet and bobbins were just packed in a little Singer green cardboard box.
