Singer Featherweight sewing machines

The 2 Featherweight Singer sewing machines I have once belonged to my mother, who has Alzheimer's. Mom gave me her Featherweight sewing machines a couple of years ago, before her disease really started to progress. I love the size of the Featherweights. I would be very happy to find  more bobbins and a box of attachments that I could use with both machines. Owners of Singer Featherweight sewing machines love them because they are small and portable. Featherweight 1953 manufactured in Port Elizabeth, N.J. This Featherweight has a case. The fold up deck on this Featherweight is longer than on my white Featherweight.  

Both of my Singer Featherweight sewing machines work, but I can't get the light to work on the black Featherweight. The bulbs filaments look intact. I have taken out the bulb and put it back in, but the light still doesn't come on when I turn on the switch. Guess I will have to track down a new bulb.

 Below..white Featherweight manufactured in 1963, Great Britain, Scotland. I have no case for this plain white FW sewing machine.

I was recently at a workshop where a lady was using her mother's featherweight. It was sturdy and useful and worked great.

I fear you are becoming addicted to collecting sewing machines, although you did turn a couple down. Lol!

Barbara...I have many sewing machines. Some fairly new and others that I've had for years, so this love for sewing machines is nothing new. (LOL)
