HEAVYWEIGHT TABLE for your 221 Featherweight

The Heavyweight Table is specially designed to fit your vintage Singer Featherweight!  It’s a beautiful black finish and gold decals will complement your 221K or 222K beautifully.  It is a sturdy table with an opening that is specifically sized to fit your Featherweight, so it offers free arm and flatbed sewing without the need for an insert. And contrary to what the name implies, it’s completely portable, so it’s perfect for taking to classes and retreats or packing in your RV.

The steel locking legs offer a sturdy base, but fold up neatly for easy storage. It also has a Velcro strip to secure the legs in place and 2 wheels on the side of the table for easy maneuverability.

Because her tough melamine surface is mar-resistant, the Heavyweight Sewing Table will stand up to years of use and still look great.

This is an exclusive product and is only available through an Arrow Dealer.

Prices are subject to change and may vary among dealers in different markets.

Price:  $229.00 + Tax
