The reason for this book was the recurring gossip and speculation that the Standard Sewhandy machine was the basis of the SINGER 221 Featherweight. After many months of research, I realized that documenting the Sewhandy would take more than 500 pages; I have published before the Featherweight - Sewhandy in two volumes. This book, Volume 1, details before the design (early 1920's) thru production end (late 1938) of the Sewhandy, patents, model identification, Sewhandy ads and brochures, & an OSANN SINGER Sewhandy versus SINGER Featherweight sew-off.The companion book, Volume 2, covers maintenance & repair of all Sewhandy models, mechanical and electrical operation, advice on buying, restoring, shipping, parts, model identification, & a specification comparison of an OSANN SINGER Sewhandy with a SINGER 221 Featherweight.
