The Singer Featherweight 221, also known as the Alphasew Featherweight, is a legend in its own right. Singer is the brand which is associated with being able to hand down your sewing machine for generations. The Featherweight 221 has become a symbol of a simple sewing machine that is portable, reliable, and perfect for crafts people to take with them wherever they go.
Singer introduced its Featherweight in 1933. Now, in the 21st Century, there is still a demand for this simple sewing machine. You can find originals online at sites like eBay, where used or refurbished machines are auctioned.

I am a fan of these heavy little Alphasew machines. Despite the sort of funky instruction booklet that doesn't quite match the machines, I do like my Alphasew machines for what I do - deerskin products, usually not more than 3 layers. These tough simple machines are real workhorses. As long as I keep them oiled up they work really well.
I believe the machine is a good attempt to replicate the Singer 221 Portable, and it appears to be a reasonably stout machine, reminiscent of the "best portable ever made" albeit a little rough around the edges. It appears to be quite functional and darn "cute" when set up for use. Nice to know that you can still get a "tough as nails" machine built to the old, reliable and practical designs.
