Featherweight FAQ

Here's the plan

An answer to all Featherweight queries. On these pages I hope to post questions and answers dealing with every aspect of Featherweight use.

To kick things off I've dug some enquiries from my recent mail and added the answers I sent. But if this is going to work I need you to help with your own hints and tips as well as any questions you might have.

Here's how it works:

Simply e-mail me at Singer Featherweight FAQ with any queries or suggestions that can be added to help both newcomers and experienced FW owners.

I'll update the site every week and, of course, those with queries will get an individual e-mailed response as well.

Thanks for helping to make this happen.
