If you don't think of yourself as an expert repair person or mechanically inclined, you will be pleasantly surprised to learn you can maintain your Singer Featherweight yourself! This is an in depth hands-on class that most featherweight owners are going to want to take to keep their machine running for years.
You will disassemble the machine, cleaning and lubricating each area as you go.
Nancy will cover a brief history of the Singer Featherweight. She will showcase a few vintage machines.
Nancy will emphasize the bobbin area showing where the threads collect, issues unique to the featherweight, oiling frequency, motor maintenance, how to get rid of that "vintage" odor, and polishing the painted surface.
