I have just acquired a Singer 201 and it is one gorgeous machine. It sew beautiful stitches and is so very quiet. Now, my problem is in STD Quilting. I went on line to purchase a walking foot for this older machine. The walking foot is made for the single stitch machine in that the walking foot is narrower than on other machines to align itself properly with the feed dogs of the single stitch Singer 201. It does fine when making the first STD lines of Quilting but when it is time to turn the quilt and go the other direction, it seems that the walking foot doesn't feed quite as well and I usually wind up with very tiny tucks between the blocks. I was wondering if any of you who have done STD quilting on the Singer 201 have the same problem. I can't figure out why it does so well on all rows going one way but has this slight problem when going the other direction. I dearly love this machine for the big harp that gives you plenty of room for a larger quilt. I presently am only doing lap throws for the local nursing homes but I would love to make a regular or queen size quilt for our bed. I have read in the posts that this is an excellent machine for FMQ but I just prefer to have a little more puffiness in my quilts and besides I am just no good at FMQ.
