FS: Vintage Singer Featherweight Iron -- Best Piecing Iron Available!
Hi, if you are a quilter & FW lover, then you may wish to own the MAIN
ACCESSORY purchased to compliment Singer Featherweights, etc. back
then by new sewing machine buyers of the time. This item was a
superior quality FW Iron designed and manufactured to compliment the
Singers by several top appliance makers. These were designed with a
dual purpose to compliment Singer colors and for sewing
room use, as well as to travel with Singer 221/222s
When mirror-polish restored for superb glide (less burned
fingers/effortless piecing) combined with a compact easy to maneuver
iron profile for small pieces & individually cotton-calibrated
ESPECIALLY FOR PIECING (to allow you the extra few moments you need
without scorching your cherished fabric); these are the FINEST PIECING
IRONS YOU CAN BUY AT ANY PRICE then or today! Do not confuse
these with non-restored similar models. The differences are like night
and day. These exclusive FW Irons perform better than when they were
new due to exact individual cotton-calibration and professional
mirror-polishing for extraordinary glide.
The manufacturers of the time could not afford to incorporate these
additional iron refinements cost effectively into these irons due to
the cost of the additional skilled labor and machining required for a
mass produced iron. Simply, this additional refining of the irons
would have been them too expensive as they were already very costly to
buy for sewers of the time.
We are doing these value-adding refinements to these vintage and
collectible irons, because there is a demand today for a superb
piecing iron for use by discerning quilters, doll clothing makers,
child clothing makers, etc.
These FW Irons actually traveled with Singer Featherweights back then,
so it has been a long time marriage. We uncovered this information in
our appliance collecting history research. Look at some of our
pictures of these FW Irons. See for yourself. For
example, one FW Iron which leaves no doubt as to the
manufacturer intent is the FW Iron designed to compliment
Singer tan or white Featherweights and Singer two-tone
color designs as well.
Many travelers mended their clothing on trips, as basic clothing was
not an inexpensive throw-away imported item as it is
today found at Walmart, etc. So, these FW Irons were needed and were
not just frivolous accessories. Most families then had at least one
person who sewed (usually a female member, but many men sewed as
well). Small travel sized machines such Singer Featherweights (with a
FW Iron) were included as a part of the luggage for the trip,
especially for extended trips. The mentality of today is a throw-away
society that was NOT present back then and thus the marketing of
premium compact FW Irons too. Singer Featherweights were very
expensive proportionately back then, and so were these FW Irons of
equal quality to compliment the Singers.
These FW Irons were described by the best manufacturers as the second
iron for the household sewing room as well as a perfect
presentation gift for all occasions. You see proportionately in terms
of relative dollar value back then, these FW Irons were very expensive
due in part to the high quality that went into them initially in
manufacture, which makes them great to use today if restored and
properly calibrated. So as these were expensive, the giving of one as
a gift was perfectly acceptable.
FYI, we have one on ebay right now! Or you can buy one direct with
far more model choices if you wish from our web site. A basic FW Iron
can be purchased from our website for 125 dollars and the prices go up
