We are very excited to add this lovely TAN Featherweight 221J to the site.  Aside from a few cosmetic differences, the Tan Featherweight machines are mechanically identical to Black Featherweight machines (whereas the White Featherweights are a little bit different internally).  Completely serviced, cleaned, polished, electrically inspected, timed, tuned and sampled, rest assured - this Featherweight 221J will be ready to sew right out of the case.  Powerful original 110v motor with a quiet, smooth stitch.  As with all machines purchased from April 1930’s, this will be accompanied with a Guarantee Certificate.  Serial number JE 160062 indicates an approximate production commission year of 1961.

Cosmetic differences between black and tan:  Paint color is tan; Light Housing has art-deco, retro-styling as does the Face Plate; Bobbin Winder is shaped differently, Stitch Regulator knob is tan plastic; No Bed Decals.  Mechanically, TAN Featherweights are identical to Black Featherweights.

Along the back edge of the bed the paint has been somewhat touched up.  It takes just the right light to even be able to see it.  We are not sure if it was a factory touch-up, or if a previous owner had it done.

The original Instruction Manual is titled for a 221, but it is legitimately for this machine as indicated by the cosmetic differences in the illustrations of the Tan Featherweight.  This is indeed the manual that came with the machine into the shoppe.

Excellent condition with minimal wear to the surface.  Lighter color paints always show flaws sooner than darker colors, so you can see that this one has really been well taken care of.

We noticed upon close inspection that there are a few small places (handwheel, light housing, faceplate, back edge of bed, and back of motor) where the paint has been touched up by a previous owner.  You can see one of the most obvious examples of this along the handwheel in the photo above..

Minimal pin and other markings.  I can’t help but wonder what special garments or maybe even quilts were lovingly made on this old, tan Singer Featherweight..
