Singer Featherweight Restoration Services

Our in-house technician Jeremi has decades of experience fixing sewing machines of all makes and models, is an expert on universal sewing machine workings and holds several manufacturer certifications. 

Jeremi personally tests every Singer Featherweight and rebuilds each vintage sewing machine to assure your Featherweight is in top running condition. In fact, we restore our machines to better-than-new condition. It's not uncommon for the stitching speed of a Featherweight to increase by more than 25% when Jeremi is done fine-tuning.

Custom Painted Featherweights

Glossy, Chromatic, Metallic, Pearl, Candy – the paint choices are as endless as your imagination.

We will work with you each step of the way to make sure your restored Featherweight is painted the exact color of your dreams — we even do custom detailing that would make a hot-rodder proud. The artistic workmanship, decal placement, and fine attention to detail by our nationally known, award-winning custom painter makes every one of our Featherweights a swoon-worthy, prized possession.

We can also paint shears, snips and pinks to match your custom machine. All our painted scissors include free lifetime sharpening.

How we differ from The Featherweight Shop
If you are seeking an exquisitely restored Featherweight, we highly recommend our friends at The Featherweight Shop. Their "concours d'elegance" machines are second to none. 

Offered in a once monthly auction, The Featherweight Shop sets the standard for "as they came from the factory" restoration. The Featherweight Shop also provides a full complement of accesories as part of the package.

Our renovated machines are intended for daily driver type use where that first parking lot scratch won't send you into tears. Our custom painted machines are intended to give a second life to Featherweights which would otherwise likely be headed to the scrap heap. Of course, we can make your machine a show piece, too.
