Dave McCallum’s bestselling book has everything you need to maintain, repair, and restore your Featherweight machine on your own. The user-friendly design with lay-flat, spiral binding makes it easy to use. Pages printed single-sided allow for taking notes or sketches as you work. Well-illustrated technical drawings assist you in each step as you learn to clean, rebuild, and even “fumigate” the machine’s carrying case. If you own a Singer Featherweight 221 or 222 you need the “The Featherweight 221 and I” book.

In “The Featherweight 221 and I”, Dave walks you through some of the most common issues that come up on these fantastic machines. Additionally, the illustrations that are done are extremely helpful to get a full picture of what is being covered. The manual is printed on only one side of the page. This is done purposefully to be used to make notes and drawings about what you doing while working on your Singer Featherweight machine. That way when you go back to your work on another day you will know where you are and have those notes stored in the right place for future work.

We here at The Featherweight Doctor use “The Featherweight 221 and I” as the primary teaching materials in our Featherweight self-maintenance classes as well as in our Singer Featherweight shop while working on machines.
