    I was gifted a Singer 301

    I was given this singer 301 yesterday. Today I dropped it off at my sewing machine man. 4 hours later it was up and running. It had a bent shaft he straightened, he cleaned and oiled it, rebuilt the tension and she runs like a dream♥ There is just something about the old Singers.....can't beat them! I named her Cat. The friend that gave her to me is called CatName:  301.JPG

    Oh, lucky you, she is a beauty. Don't know where I'd put it, but I might put it on my bucket list.

    A little oil polish and it will be a pageant winner.

    Oh boy! You hit the jackpot! I would love a long-bed black 301. These are amazing! My new 301 is quickly becoming one of my favorite machines. Your friend Cat is a sweetie!
