Finally bit the bullet and got a Featherweight - Singer 221-1
Like many people that find sewing machines fascinating, the Singer Featherweight 221 is among those machines near the top of the list for acquiring. I'm no different. What to do, what to do....... Yes, I finally did the dastardly deed and bought one off Craigslist. It's hard finding a good one with a case for under $300 but in my case, patience paid off.
This is the Centennial edition, so it has the medallion with the blue outline. It also places production of this machine in the 1951 time frame.
Wow, such a messy work bench. I need to do something about that.
