About the Event

The class will take place in the Terrace meeting room at the DoubleTree Resort from 6-9

The “Love Your Featherweight” will enable the owner of a vintage Singer Featherweight Sewing machine to have confidence when cleaning and maintaining their machine to keep it running well for years to come. We will discuss history of the featherweight machines as well as go over the basic oiling and maintenance that is required to keep the machines in top working order. We will also go over some common problems that are encountered with tensions and other aspects of the sewing machine.

Registration necessary. Prepayment is necessary. Cancellation will be refunded 50% up to 1 week prior to the class. No refunds given if cancellation is less than 1 week prior to the class.

Supplies Needed:

A fully functioning Singer 221 Sewing Machine, power cord, bobbin case and case (if the machine needs work, please call Kathy before the class to make a repair appointment)

A large old towel to put on the table to protect the table while we work

A flashlight or small desk lamp for your table (In case the room lighting is not adequate)

Small rags to use for cleaning the machine

Thread (light colored thread is best) - please wind a bobbin with the same thread before the class

Snips to cut the thread

Needle threader if you need one

Practice fabric (plain color, white or muslin work well) You need about 6 pieces that are 4x4 or a little bigger. We will use these to test tension and your stitch.

Tiny screw driver (to adjust tension)

Regular sized straight screwdriver

User manual if you have one

Paper and pencil if you would like to take notes

As part of the class fee, you will be given oil, lubricant, brush, bed cushions, drip pan felt and a new needle. Your instructor will be bringing accessories for purchase including: Books, bobbins, LED bulbs, power cords, ¼” feet, walking feet for the Featherweight, and other feet and accessories.

Materials Fee: No additional fees will be charged for materials, but the students may wish to purchase items from the instructor.

Homework: Make sure that your Singer Featherweight is fully functional. If it is not in working condition, please contact Kathy Farra at 724-453-4449 to make an appointment to have the machine serviced before the class. We will not have time in this class to do major repairs on machines.

If it is raining the day of the class, put a plastic bag upside down over the top of the case and carry it by the handle with the bag on top and the hole in the bottom. This will protect the case from damage from the rain!
