    Your longbed black 301 is one of the most coveted machines for collectors. The finish on yours looks very good, too. You have a wonderful friend! I love my 301's--that's right, I have more than one. I learned to sew on my Mom's 301, and she bought me one to take to college. Then, I came across more of them at garage sales, etc, so now, I have five!!! You will love it.

    I love my 301(s). Yes, I have more than one, also. You will love sewing on Cat. I just wonder..knowing how these machines are built..How in the world did the shaft get bent?
    You can get older, but you never have to grow up!

    You are so right about those old machines. I have two 301's, black and mocha, and I love them both. Of course, I also have two-15-91, two-201, two-99K, Spartan, 66 Redeye Treadle, a 66 Redeye treadle that I converted into a hand crank and 3 older singers with shuttle type bobbins. I keep 3 of them set up at all times for doing different quilting functions. I am just in heaven while I am quilting.

    Does your 15-91 do free motion quilting?

    You will love sewing on her. I have a mocha coloured one and it's my absolute favourite machine. I really like the look of the black ones. Lucky you.
