May Speaker – The Featherweight Doctor Darlene Girton

Join the May 6th Zoom Guild Meeting for an informative talk on the “ Singer Renaissance.” 

Darlene will walk you through the fascinating history of the Singer Featherweight! These magnificent machines are still wildly popular 87 years after they first rolled off the assembly line, and this is your chance to learn what they can add to your sewing world. Get Featherweight facts and more!

With 20+ years’ experience quilting, teaching, working with and working on Singer Featherweight 221 and 222 machines, she loves to see these well-built machines continue to make perfect little stitches and as a result live a new life as a great portable machine for quilters for years to come.

“My favorite part of the Featherweight is the simplicity of the design. I love educating and empowering people to take care of their equipment by using hand tools. I consider it an honor to be part of this amazing community of enthusiasts.”

Her local business, The Featherweight Doctor, is a full-service machine repair and dealership specializing in the infamous Singer Featherweight. She offers classes on machine quilting and Featherweight maintenance workshops and stocks vintage as well as modern accessories, parts, and gift items.
