    Red face White singer featherweight

    Trying again to post a picture. I seen where I might have to resize the picture first. So I have tried that. It looks pretty small so I hope it doen't come out that small when I post it. I am wondering if I have to go back and change the size again in my computer so it's not little. So comfusing these computers.
    Anyway I was able to get the white featherweight from a craigslist add it sew like a dream.

    I have the white one too. It is so cute! Congratulations on yours! I'm thinking of downsizing my collection of Featherweights so I can buy a Husqvarna Sapphire. But maybe not....I'm on the fence!

    I have four black ones 221 and this white one. I would love to fine a 222 freearm and an aqua one. I am always seaching craiglist, that's the only place I found that you can get a reasonable price on them. e-bay they get way to high

    Thats wonderful that you found one, she is a pretty lil thing, have you named her?
    I have never heard of a aqua one. My white ones have a green tint to them, have never seen a pure white one either. I have several white 221s and several black 221s and one black 222- free arm, and one beige 221.
    Love them all.

    I have one little featherweight but it is black. I love it and I do have the Sapphire..she is a dream machine in my book! I am still learning what all I can do with her!

    Hi, that's a nice little beauty you got there !!! But I think it is what they call the scarce, almost mythical "mint green" feather weight machines. You should check the serial number, she may be more rare than you think. Singer has a site where you can check serial #s to see where and when she was built. What is her name? You have to give her her own special name. lol Auntie B
