If you have friends or family with this terrible disease you will be very supportive of my efforts in this project. I know what it takes to make a difference in someone's life.
The story of this beautiful little featherweight machine is a good one. It had a happy life with great owners. From the day it was born in about 1934 it has been used and stored by nice families who used it to make clothes, mend jeans, sew tarps and it was stored somewhere in a place it had a little moisture. It started to corrode where the paint was showing and that is where I came in. I bought the machine and sent it to “The Featherweight Factory” where it was stripped and corrosion preventive was used before painting. All the gears and parts were removed and reassembled after painting was complete. This little guy is ready to sew or be kept as a keepsake, whatever you are determined to do with it will be a further place in the history of this wonderful little Singer 221 featherweight. This machine was reconditioned partly as a donation to the Breast Cancer Research and to help produce the project of “Pink Singer Featherweight Sheryl Lynn Oshel”. This is also a reminder, when people set their mind to fix something metal, medical or psychological it can happen. If you believe in yourself, your doctor and God, things will go the way your life is supposed to go.
My website was built to help with a project of the Little Pink Singer Featherweight. I am working on this project to help with the research for a cure for breast cancer. The Pink Featherweight sewing machines started selling this year and donations to the Susan G. Koman and other cancer foundations for the research of this horrible desease will be a part of this project. Look at my Pink Featherweight Page to learn more about that project.
