I've been busy getting to know my new machines. Ended up winning bids on 2 different machines about a month ago. First one is a featherweight. 2nd is it's big sister, the 301A. Have purchased the tri-flo oil and recommended grease and learned about cleaning and lubricating them; also ordered a quilting (darning) foot for the 301A. Love the sound of the steady, sturdy and metalic clicking as I sew with these machines. I can see the featherweight will be great for piecing, and I think I should keep the 301A just ready for fmq.
