A week or so ago, the UPS man brought this to my door. It was a birthday & Christmas gift from one of my sisters. She had sent it after the holidays, as she wanted to arrive when we were in town. From what I have figured out thus far, it is a Singer Featherweight 221 Centential edition and has a birthdate of October 31, 1951. My sister found this a few years ago at a yard sale of a charitable organization where she lives in Nevada. I think she bought it not completely realizing what a find she had made! After a bit of research of her own, she did get the electric cord replaced and updated and has had it tucked away since.
These are the original accessories that were included...I'm still deciphering a few of them? If anyone can add any insight to these, it would be appreciated. Actually, if you have any experience with a featherweight I'd love to hear about it. This is something I had not read much about previously. (since replacing my main machine has been the priority)
I do know that I am going to absolutely love how tiny and light it is for classes as most do. Even though it is very clean looking, I'm going to take it in to get it checked out right away... I'm a bit nervous to try it/break it! In the meantime, I need to find a manual for this and read up a bit!
So thanks, Naomi! I LOVE my present!
