I have a singer featherweight 11 117 model and the spool pin snapped. Where can I get a replacement?


First of all, it's likely at this point that you think your machine is unusable without it, but you're wrong. I have four Singer high-end sewing and embroidery machines, and it has been years since I used their spool pins.

Simply put a coffee cup or--my favorite--a lidless pint Mason Jar at the back of your sewing machine towards the right (away from the fabric side), bend the thread (don't wind the thread) around the remains of the spool pin to use it as a thread guide, and then thread the way you usually do, and you are in business!

Now, to address the replacement issue, there are several places where you can order a new one. Do a search on eBay for "Singer Featherweight Spool Pin" and a number of listings will come up. Don't put in your model number in the search box. If you see that a dealer is featuring one for a Featherweight, but not for your model, don't hesitate to use the "Ask a Question" option in a listing; these are generally quite knowledgeable dealers who can order one for you. Also Jenny's Sewing Studio and Sewing Parts Online either have them in stock or can order them for you. It appears that they are quite inexpensive too!

I am trying to use a singer featherweight II but I can't figure out how to thread the machine no manual


Is this a very old machine because the manual I"ve located doesn' look like the image on Fixya.

Try this link http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/997_white-117.-kenmore-x.pdf

Singer have various model manuals downloadable, you just need to search them at their website page http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals/search

Trust this helps you out.

If you don't resolve the issue and this is a vintage machine, then there is some good user groups such as Vintage Singers under Yahoo where enthusiasts share info on their old machines. Good to lurk though or go through old threads first as there is often someone else who has asked similar question in the past. There may also be manuals in their files so have a dig around.

Bought a featherlite 221 will not pick up bobbin thread have no manaul so am i threading it correctly or putting in needle wrong the machine is like new


I see Singer Featherweight Featherlite manuals, not a Featherlite as a stand-alone model name. For the Featherweight 221 manual try here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html and enter the model 221. Alternative site: http://www.singer-featherweight.com/ with the direct link to the manual here: http://www.singer-featherweight.com/sitetwopages/singfea.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Can you give me instructions online (email them to me or point me to a website) for threading a Singer Featherweight II? It's my daughter's machine and she can't find the manual...I got ready to sew...

I'm not sure if the featherweight is listed here, go by the model number if there is one or have a look at a few threading diagrams until you find one that most closely resembles you machine. Hope this helps!

Threading diagram for a 1941 Featherweight by singer My repairman sewed just great when I got it home it breaks threads all the time. I assume I am threading it wrong.


This machine threads from right to left in the needle and the flat side should be inserted to the left.Try this and let me know how it works.
