Love Your Featherweight



The Machine Lady
Specializing in Singer 221 Featherweight Sewing Machines and Accessories
Machine Lady, LLC is dedicated to preserving sewing history by helping people use their Singer 221 Featherweight sewing machines effectively. We are a full service repair shop and we attend several quilt shows each year. At quilt shows our focus is on selling Featherweights and accessories including: power cords, bobbins, walking feet, ¼” feet, books, oil, motor lubrication, and other parts. We also bring other vintage Singer machines for sale. Please stop by our booth and test drive our machines to find the machine that fits your needs. We also have some hand crafted items for your Featherweight machines, including custom made Featherweight tables and other unique accessories. Machines, parts and accessories may also be purchased through our website. The Machine Lady would be pleased to present our “Love Your Featherweight Class” for your sewing group. During the three hour class the students have the opportunity to learn about Singer Featherweight history along with proper methods for cleaning, oiling, and basic maintenance of the Featherweight machine.
