    Just got a phone call...I own a 301a.

    Buddy of mine just called me from a garage sale. I guess I now own a mocha 301a with a cabinet and a"bunch" of attachments. I will pick it up tonight and see what I have. Hopefully get some pictures up. I take it the 301's are popular? It is really newer than what I am into, hope it is nice.

    The 301's are a great machine! They call it the "Featherweight's Big Sister". it is portable, as it has a carrying handle on top. Sews great stitches! I am almost jealous that you got a bunch of attachments! I need to find some for myself. Please post pics for us!

    he mentioned a button holler and a zig zig er manual, all in original boxes. Kinda excited to see it. I don't know anything about the cabinet. Supposedly it came from a quilter that got a new wonder machine and gave this one to a young student to sell at a yard sale to make some money with. I owe him 60 bucks, hope that is a fair price.

    The 301 is a great machine and they are starting to take off like the Featherweights in price. To me it would be the machine to own over the FW because it can do so much more and is a full size machine. Either way you scored on this deal and I know you will love it, trust me I have had 6 or 7 of them

    I have a tan 301 in a trapizod cabinet and 2- 301a. One came in the straw case and the other came in a really nice desk type cabinet. I love them all and I'm following another one, so... LOL And Yes.. $60 is a great price.

    Even if you were to decide not to keep the machine, I'm pretty sure you can flip it for more than what you paid for it...it looks really nice! Congrats! (And I think you'll love it...I love the one I just got, and for the most part, I prefer my treadles)
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    i got the original manual for the machine and all of the accessories, the cord and foot pedal are in great shape, the light works and I can find no chips or dings on her any where. She is quiet tight and lovely. Pretty pleased ( though she would be better in black) the only thing that seems to be missing is the rolled hem foot. The ruffler, binder, edge stitcher, adjustable hem and a gathering foot are all in the box

    a few more picture in my album "301a Mocha"

    Congratulations! You will really enjoy sewing with the 301. And she isn't homely - she will grow on you. Nice bunch of attachments you have there. I don't have any of those goodies - but did buy a quarter inch foot and walking foot. Enjoy your new additions.
    This too shall pass.
