Question about Singer Featherweight II 117

1 Answer

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 something for her and found no book in the case. Thanks!

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!

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!

Shuttle action not working, doesnt catch the down thread, bunches up thread and breaks needle.


Hi. I did not have this exact problem with my Featherweight. My machine was not stitching properly (top stitch looked so-so, but lots of thread bunching on underneath side of fabric). I took it to repair shop and learned that I was threading the needle thread on the wrong side of the metal plate which is part of the take-up arm (I do not think that the threading instructions make this distinction). After the repairman pointed out the problem & threaded the machine, it made a proper stitch.
My suggestion for this issue: check the bobbin threading. My bobbin has to be inserted so that it turns counterclockwise in order to catch the down thread.

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.

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.
