I'm sorry, we got waaaay of topic. Crinkle and Blackside were models ofsinger featherweigth machines that are very, very rare. So if you're a collectorit's interesting when one surfaces. Marsha

Thank you Marsha for the info. I, too did not know

what everyone was talking about. Are ther pictures of

these machines anywhere. I have a Singer featherweight

that I purchased in the 1970's for $40. I take it to

quilting classes.

Thank you Marsha for the web site. It was quite

interesting. I will have to check my serial number to

see when it might have been mfg. I know it is not one

of the more valuable ones but I really love it for its

weight when doing classes.

This is a singer 221 featherweight. I can't read the medallion. It'sprobably one made in the fifties. Marcia could probably tell more. Since there'sblue around the medallion, it could be a centennial model but they aren't thatrare. Marsha

1947 is the year Singer switched from the scroll faceplate to the striated (straight lines up and down) so there are both styles for that year. Another good year is 1948 (the year I was born - HA!). The blue around the gold emblem usually means Centennial (1951) but sometimes people switch the plates as the Centennials are inherently a tad more valuable. There's a great book out on Featherweights called The Perfect Portable. I don't like reading history but I couldn't put that one down. Marcia
