Cutie-pie

That’s what I’m naming the latest addition to my “herd” of vintage sewing machines lol.

I finally found a Singer Featherweight 221K that I can afford. It’s cute as a button, hence its name “Cutie-pie”. The featherweights I knew to be highly collectible, but that’s not entirely why I wanted it. My mom’s machine has been out of commission for some time, requiring a new foot pedal and motor. I had converted it to a knee controlled machine but I don’t much care for that style because of leg movement issues and not much space for the bar etc. Little Cutie will do all the things that mom’s 99K will do and doesn’t take up half the space.

The pic is from just after we got it home.
I’m so excited to use it!
