    My son saw this machine at a salvage and demo place he went to today, this is the only pic he took to show me. He actually brought me a nice 99 in the wood case, thinking that was the machine I was looking for! I think this has to be a Featherweight, he said the guy was asking 50.00. And he didn't buy it. He said it was "cream" color and was a Singer. Can anyone tell from this picture? The salvage place isn't open until Monday, I hope it is still there.

    Buy Baby Buy!!!!!

    It's worth at least $300.00.
    I just keep looking at this one and see that it has the original foot control as well as the light colored box. What a deal. It's worth getting repaired if it needs to be.

    Thanks, I wil let you all know Monday if I get it. My son feels bad now, but I told him I love the 99, it's a 1925 model and we've got it sewing. He thought it looked older and more valuable and was the same price.

    Thats what I am saying I would be sitting in the parking lot 30 minutes before they opened!! It looks like the tan one from what I can tell and if it is it would be closer to the $1000 mark.

    YES!!! It's a white featherweight, probably made in Scotland. I have a white one, and that's the kind of case they came in. They are a little bit different from the black featherweights, but still are a featherweight.

    Can he still get it? It is worth more than $50.

    Edit: For future reference, one key feature of a featherweight model 221 is the fold-up bed on the left side of the machine. No other Singer has that feature.

    Note: The featherweight model 222 has a removable bed (slides off to the left, creating a free-arm). These are much more rare than the 221 and worth even more.

    I have a white featherweight that was made in England, just like the one you are showing> It is a great little machine to use for classes.

    I agree - BUY it! For even $300 bucks it is worth it.

    Yup, the rest are right. This is a featherweight, they call them white, but they are actually a creamy white. I have one, it was made in England in 1964 (?).

    I would be there bright and early Monday. Tell him the machine he got you is a beauty. His heart is in the right place.

    It looks brand new and so does the accessory box. What a steal. Let us see it when you get it.
