I have always sworn that the singer 15 is my favorite machine ever, so much so in fact I have two. Just love them. However, been sewing on my little green Lucy, I just bought last month,she is a little 99k and oh what a beauty. she is my favorite now. so My dh asked me if I sew on the 301's that i bought last year? gee, haven't really touched them,so I got one out and wow I can't stop sewing.! this is my favorite! Now, they are all my favorite!!!! Just love the vintage machines!
