Featherweight Two-Day Advanced Workshop

This thirteen-hour class over two days will cover everything the user needs to know to maintain their 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 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 have all the items in the kit available separately.
