    No, I don't think so. Featherweights have a fold out arm to the left of the needle.

    No, it isn't. A Featherweight has a little fold up flap on the left hand side .

    You can use this website to visually identify the model:
    http://www.sandman-collectibles.com/...achines.htm#11

    and this one to identify by the serial number:

    Good luck & let us know what you find out. :)

    Actually I believe it's a Model 66 from the Red Eye decal, unless that's a different decal and I'm not seeing it well enough. The Featherweights are very small machines, never have those fancy decals on them, and weigh only 11 pounds approx. This one is heavy and large.

    Even if it isn't a featherweight, it sure is attractive!
    Enjoy!

    Yup, a 66. 66-1. It's got the back mounted feet.

    I think the redeye is special.
    Go to mySINGERstory.com, put in the serial number. Singer will give you the year and a certificate declaring you the lucky owner! You also enter to win the 160th anniversary model.
