Just before the Russian Revolution 1917 Singer built a vast plant in Russia but after the dust settled it was taken over by the Bolsheviks. ---------------------------- Date: Sat, -0500 From: Jim Wagner ([email protected]) Subject: Different FW models Hi Fellow Fanatics, I was going to reply to Sheila via E-Mail but I thought this may be of more general interest.
Whether it was given a designating letter I do not know. There were four different models of the featherweight the 221-1, 221K4, 221K5,and 221K7. That is the only model of FW that Singer made with the switch on the light housing, all the others have the switch on the bed of the machine.

This week’s showcase is all about the Singer Featherweight.
Another check you can make to determine which model you have is to check the model number of the motor (see the plate mounted on the motor).
Each of the four models of the featherweights were originally furnished with a different motor. All that means is that it shouldn't interfere with radio or T. signals and there should be a three prong plug to insert into the wall outlet.
My mom has gone on the site and created these certificates for several of the Singer machines that we own.
The service is FREE and it’s a nice memento to keep along with your most treasured vintage machines! I hope you enjoyed looking at this beautiful sewing machine.
