    My Featherweight 221, was purchase by my mother, used, in the late 50's and was the first electric sewing machine I used (I was in my teens & in 4H). It's a wonderful machine and I have zig zag and button hole attachments. It is part of the family and gives me a warm feeling every time I use it. It is in my will, to eliminate any arguments.

    I totally agree with what the Singer repairman said! I used to sell the new Singers...it hurt to sell those. :oops:
    I love my old Singers.

    I wouldn't trade my FW for anything. I love it, it's a workhorse.I don't have a car so it fits very well on the bus, I do use a cart so I really dont have to "carry" it.
