How to Change the belt on your Singer 221 Featherweight sewing machine

video
Good morning. How are you? Well, last week the belt broke on my little featherweight and I scoured the Net to find help replacing it. I wanted to actually See someone do it, but I had no luck. So, I decided to make a little movie on how to do the quick change of the belt. Maybe it will save you a trip to the shop?

I ordered my replacement belt from www.221parts.com they were very quick in shipping and a belt only costs about $5.

It was a bit tricky making the clip in my busy home, I am sure you will notice my boys in the background. They are normally dressed, but it is hot out here in West Texas and I didn't anticipate them popping up in my movie until it was too late, and it was the best take....so the show must go on as they say in the film business!

Happy Stitching!

You can also find my little movie on Youtube.

I am so grateful to you Tia! I had a replacement belt but couldn't figure out how to replace the old one. Who knew it was just a simple screwdriver and 30 seconds. Thank you so much.
