About Us

Our Story

Darlene Girton

We Breath new life into vintage Singer Featherweight machines.

With 20+ years experience quilting, teaching, working with and working on Singer Featherweight 221 and 222 machines, we love to see these well-built machines continue to make perfect little stitches and as a result live a new life as a great portable machine for quilters for years to come.

We love seeing new and experienced quilters share in the joy of sewing with these classic vintage machines.

Sewing machines are just not made like they were 50+ years ago. With all metal construction and simple mechanics, Singer Featherweight machines were well built with quality parts and as a result, if well restored and maintained, can operate just as they did when they were new in the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s.

MEET THE GANG!

Founder

Darlene has had the idea to launch this website and grow this online shop for years. From the first Featherweight machine that Andy bought for Darlene, she and Andy certainly knew they had their hands on something special. Now they want to help give new life to these machines and share everything they know about Featherweights with others.

"My favorite part of the Featherweight is the simplicity of the design. I love educating and empowering people to take care of their equipment by using hand tools. I consider it an honor to be part of this amazing community of enthusiasts."
