Singer Featherweight & 301 Weekend Workshop

Lots of our vintage sewing machine friends have both the Featherweight and Singer 301 machines. They are similar in some ways and share the same rotary hook and bobbin case setup. By popular demand we have put together a two-day, back-to-back workshop for those who want to learn to maintain both.

The workshop will cover all the topics listed in both the Featherweight and 301 basic class. Day one will cover the Featherweight, and day two will cover the Singer 301. You will learn:

  • 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 301, and knowing how to thread and sew with it. Each attendee will be required to bring machines 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 $79 as a part of this class. Please be prepared to purchase the required kit on the day of the class. If you already have your own tools or parts we can provide whatever individual items you need during 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
