Featherweight Maintenance Workshop at Shiplap Quilts

Sign up today at this link: FW Class at Shiplap Quilts

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

  • 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.

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 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 will; be available for purchase the day of the class.

This is a group class to learn how to provide the regular cleaning and lubrication service to your Featherweight as suggested by Singer. There is not time during the class for you or the instructor to fix or repair non-working machines. If your Featherweight needs major repair or adjustment you must make arrangements with the instructor to have your machine repaired before the day of the class. You can call or email us at 214-912-8958 or to make those arrangements.
