Cute little machine

This almost looks like a Featherweight without the extension on the left.

Some have theorized that it was the other way around. Singer bought the company that made those machines, and some have imagined it was the inspiration for the Featherweight.

Hi Joe,

Thank you for the info. I do not know the history of the various sewing machine companies.

I thought it looked pretty cute and the case looks similar to the FW cases.

First was Ossan Sewhandy, then Standard, which then also was GE...and finally Singer. The sewhandy preedates the Featherweight by a few years.

Here's my Seafoam, a 1929 Sewhandy



The case is very similar to the 1933/1934 green interior FW cases.

If it were on the mainland, it would be coming home with me.
