Singer Featherweight Model 221K-7, White
This is a white color Singer Featherweight sewing machine with the original carrying case. It is in excellent condition and is ready to sew. This machine was made in 1968 in Kilbowie, Scotland, United Kingdom. The "Pale Turquoise" was the official name for this model and color of the Featherweight machines. It has become commonly known as the "white" colored machine because it was more white or pale green in apperance depending on the combination of casting color used. The white machines were made between 1961 and 1969 after Singer discontinued producing the original black Featherweight machines in 1961. The black and later tan Featherweight machine had a drive-shaft with gears that drove the machine. The new white machines had an improved new toothed belt that connected the drive shafts and drove the machine. Other new improvements were also incorporated in this machine including the first sealed motor that did not require lubication. The white machines are harder to find and more rare than the black machines because they were on produced for 8 years.
