    I refinished this 1937 Singer 201. I have the gift cards the lady was given and each attachment was meant for gifts as well, loads of attachments. I love to sew with it, it sound like a mack truck after driving my Toyota!!

    This sewer used this machine all those year and sold it at a yard sale for $20 when he went into a nursing home.

    Wow, nice. I wish my Grandmother's 201 looked that good. All her decals are gone and it's gross looking. It sits in a cabinet in my basement. I wish I had a pretty cabinet like yours for it though.

    I had my grandmothers in the cabinet but it rusted out...during a time when I didn't appreciate Vintage Singers...I'm wondering if she can be saved...I guess she'll have to make a trip to a Singer Dr.

    You did a phenomenal job with the refinishing.
    You are one lucky lady.

    Such a pretty machine. I bought a Singer Touch and Sew and it came in a cabinet just like that one. I took it out and switched it with the cabinet that my Rocketeer came in.
