Caution: 221 Featherweight Owners
It is important for operators to perform periodic general cleaning and oiling on their sewing machines. In some cases this requires removing the top and bottom covers, face plate and needle plate. This allows access to areas other wise not accessible. The replacing of those items is normally the same as the removal. However on the Singer 221 Featherweight and the Singer 301 there is a caution to be concerned about.
On page 12 of most 221 manuals there is reference
to this caution. It states: "make certain when
replacing the throat plate, that the position
finger "A2" of the bottom case base enters the
notch "B2" of the position plate which is
attached on the under side of the throat plate.
Failure to follow this caution could cause serious damage to some very expensive parts located in this area.
If you are not comfortable performing this or any adjustment take your machine and control to your local dealer.

Free Motion Guide Grip
Fits ALL machines.
No need to place your fabric in a hoop for free-motion sewing. Place on top of fabric for free-motion, quilting, embroidery or monogramming. The friction surface on the underside of the guide grip holds the fabric taut and provides handles for moving the fabric. Set your machine for normal free-motion sewing according to your operators manual.
Note: For free-arm models works best with your sewing machine extension plate attached.
Some fabrics especially light weight fabrics may require a stabilizer. Some projects may require the conventional two piece wood hoop.
