At first glance the Singer Featherweight 221 and 222K sewing machines can look like a child’s toy, as they are so small and compact in their LP sized carrying boxes.
However their diminutive size did not detract from their functionality and they became highly popular with occasional sewers because they were so easy to pack neatly away for storage after use.

Normally, to wind a bobbin, you disengage the stop motion knob (small chrome knob inside the large hand wheel) by unscrewing it (lefty loosey, righty tighty), and the sewing mechanism should disengage.
The Featherweight machines were substantially lighter than previous Singer models.
The main casting was aluminium and the whole machine was much lighter at under 12lbs.
