NJS is known in the quilting world for her patterns, books and teaching but she is also an expert in the Featherweight world. In this book, she shares her vast knowledge of Featherweight history, lots of valuable instruction manual info (since many of our machines no longer have them) and great troubleshooting advice. A must read!

This book mixes "how to" with history and a touch of humor. For those of us who need larger print than the traditional (and detailed) repair manual, this is a delight. The book is written about a home-sewing icon which helped to make life better for families since it's beginning in the 1930's.

This little purple book, which I got on Amazon.com, is worth it's weight in gold. Includes charts to help you find the Birth Date (mfg) of your machine, where different models came from, a bit about colors. Several good photos and good clear drawings to help you get that bobbin case back in correctly, where to oil and where to grease - how often - and what to use. AND it will slide right down in your case with the machine.

I was a little disappointed with this book. I had already read every thing in the book on the internet. I had even printed most of the information free from a 221 website.
No new information in this publication.

If your into using, collecting, or purchasing featherweights this is your book. The Singer featherweight is the only sewing machine that has lasted through history and this is their encyclopedia. Great information in general to date a featherweight, learn about their evolution and just to use one new to you. Also, lets a person know what they may in interested in purchasing.

If your like me and get the Featherweight bug you need this book for your collection even if your collection consists of one, we all start with just one. I bought the kindle version because I only had one at the time, now I have 4 of these ladies and wish I had purchased the hard copy to display with my collection. I also suggest you purchase this book before you buy your FW so you know what to look for. There's all these little things about the FW that makes each one unique IE why is a 1951 more valuable than a 1948. Why you shouldn't pass one up because it smells (simple fix).
Buy the book you won't be disappointed.

I purchased this book for my 14 yr old granddaughter because it is a wonderful book of instruction on the machine and its attachements. I have the same book and always refer to it. The history of the Featherweight is also valuable history info.
I also bought my granddaughter a Featherweight 221, because it is lightweight and sews beautifully. I love Mine.

If you have the attachments for your featherweight-this book is for you. The instructions and pictures were very helpful in knowing how the attachments work.
