My name is Sarah and this is my story....

Submitted by sarah on August 13, 2014
My name is Sarah and this is my story. I am 18 now and as a child I was molested so to forget the horrible memories I taught myself to so . I worked two jobs to get my own sewing machine but as a young 16 year old I was never able to make enough money so I used my mothers. I have dreamed of having my own sewing machine , but just found that they are so expensive. I have over come so much hate in my life and this machine would be a dream come true. now I know to most that seems stupid but I love to sew and have just recently gotten a scholarship in fashion design but must have own machine, please help me achieve my dream . I am a survivor and weather or not I win this machine I will continue to try! My mother has always told me to just have hope and faith,

Went to a yard sale and found my first Singer Feathweight 221-1. The serial # is AH568395. It was born Apr. 20, 1948 which just happens to be my birth year as well. I find that pretty exciting. I was told that over the weekend they would be bringing more items out. Went back the following day and they had brought out a 222K, serial # EK329787 born Mar 14, 1956 which i also purchased. I am one lucke lady to own one of each. They stitch beautifully.

I hope you can help me. I am a 62 year old who never learned to sew! 30 years ago I bought a vintage Singer treadle machine hoping one day to learn how to use it and begin sewing, but alas I found myself busy running a cottage industry (making soap) and caring for more than 3 dozen stray and injured cats. Fast forward to now, and I have finally taken a look at the old machine, serial number C1851625. I've cleared away the dust and cobwebs (the machine was oiled and in working order when I bought it but it has never been used since I purchased it.). The leather belt is missing (a little girl removed it years ago and it got lost) But I haven't a clue how to use the machine, not even how to thread it and I suspect some things I need may be missing (besides the belt) like bobbin holders or something?? Please help! I would love to learn to sew on it, even simple things like curtains. Is there a good book out there that explains how to work one of these machines and how to sew on one? I will take a photo of it today and send it along if you like. Many thanks for any help you can provide.

I found my first Singer Featherweight 221-1 at a moving sale yesterday! When I saw that black box on a table, I knew instinctively what was in there. She's in impeccable condition and I am now a proud owner, a quilter who is very happy to have one. Most quilters desire this machine and now I know why; she makes a gorgeous stitch!
