Featherweight Two-Day Advanced Workshop



This thirteen-hour class over two days will cover everything the user needs to know to maintain her machine in top working order. This is a hands-on, advanced level class in which you will bring your own Featherweight, and learn the following:

Day one covers the basics:

  • Complete user-level disassembly
  • Stray thread removal
  • Cleaning
  • Checking the electrical
  • Oiling
  • Greasing the motor and gears
  • Reassembling
  • Installing and adjusting the belt
  • Servicing the foot controller
  • Adjusting tensions and test sew-out.

Day two covers additional topics such as:

  • Remove and replace hook assembly
  • Repairing loop guard damage
  • Hook to needle adjustment
  • Needle bar height adjustment
  • Hook timing
  • Feed dog adjustment
  • Presser foot adjustment
  • Motor service
  • Top thread tension disassembly and reassembly
  • Overview of electrical system
  • Foot controller adjustment
  • FAQs
The only prerequisites are having a Featherweight and knowing how to thread and sew with it. Each attendee will be required to bring a machine and pay for the class - no auditing allowed. Class size will be 8 or less to allow for plenty of individual instruction.

Properly fitted screwdrivers are essential for Featherweight maintenance without damaging the machine, and to keep up with the class. A maintenance tool and service parts kit is sold separately for $69 as a part of this class. If you bring your own tools or parts we are willing to credit you for whatever you don't need to keep. Please be prepared to purchase the required kit on the day of the class.

NOTE: This class will be held at our shop, at:
7348 Fair Oaks Rd SE
Olympia, WA 98513

 

Please arrive 15 minutes before the start of class
