Sewing Machine LED Bulbs Out The Wazoo!

Mister has been busy getting custom LEDs built for sewing machines!!!  But I should clarify that he doesn’t literally have LED’s out the wazoo (thank goodness for that!).

Battle of the Bulbs

Battle of the Bulbs

I posted a while back that he was selling LED’s replacement bulbs for the Singer Featherweight 221 machines.  The way the bases were manufacturered limited them to mainly the black 221 machines, and they could not be used in the Singer 301 machines. Brad worked with the manufacturer and they redesigned the base for him!  So if you were holding off buying an LED because you didn’t think it would fit your white Singer 221 (those were hit and miss with whether they’d fit or not), or you have a 301 and you want this LED… Head over HERE to place an order.

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!!! (I feel like the Wacky Wavy Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man Emporium & Warehouse salesman from Family Guy right now.)

Brad worked with the manufacturer to get them to make a screw based bulb for my Brother PQ1500S. Turns out it’s a standard 7/16″ screw-based 110V bulb common in quite a few sewing machines.  It fits my other Brother, an XL-3750 as well. So if you’re interested in an LED for your sewing machine you can check this page HERE and click on the link that lists the machines that are compatible with this bulb.

IMPORTANT NOTE (that the Wacky Wavy Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man salesman would NOT share with you): The LED is a scant 1/4″ LONGER than the standard bulb.  Most machines have that extra room, but we just want you to double check to be sure before ordering!

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!  I am about to get back to sewing my Christmas presents.  What plans do you have this weekend??


LED Replacement Bulb for Singer Featherweight 221


Recently Mister found a replacement LED lightbulb for my Singer Featherweight.  All I can say is… WOW!  What a difference a bulb makes.  My sewing area is much brighter, and I no longer accidentally burn myself… BONUS!

Mister had a difficult time finding a reasonably priced bulb.  As some of you may know, they sell online for about $35.  What?!?!  Yeah, it’s crazy.  Anyway, he found a source that will sell in bulk to him and he decided to start selling them himself for $10 SHIPPED! If you’re interested, I’ve set up a page HERE sharing all the details and set up a contact form for you to send us an email requesting a bulb order or to get more information. You can also click the LED image in the sidebar to quickly get to the page.

As we get bulbs in stock you’ll also see me posting on Instagram and you can contact me there if you’re interested.

Happy Sewing (with a brighter, less burn-the-tips-of-your-fingers-off, light!)
