|Singer 221 Featherweight Sewing Machine|
Case with bluish-green interior and full tray
Serial Number AD550866
Manufactured October 3, 1933
The Singer Featherweight portable sewing machine is a model made by that company
between 1933 and 1964. The machine (model 221), adapted from an earlier portable, the
Standard SewHandy (which company was bought out by Singer) weighs about 11 pounds
and has been found to be an ideal machine for quilters and other sewers to take to classes
or "on location." Very quiet and sturdily made with all-metal parts (mostly aluminum),
the Featherweight sews only straight stitches but it sews them very well. Even the
oldest machines, if they've been cared for, still sew wonderfully.

We played volleyball tonight after school but our team, "The Blue Eagles," didn't win. I sewed a little after supper.
