    New baby

    I feel so happy today with a new baby I purchased from an acquaintance. It was a great bargain in the cabinet, with the stool, and the stool was full of treasures. I have spent 2 hours tonight cleaning her up, taking her apart and giving her a good servicing. She looked in good shape and clean...fooled me. I don't think it had ever been cleaned. She is a beautiful 301a now. I am going to love sewing on Catherine (named after the original owner,mother of the friend). Pictures were before the cleanup. I feel like I got my $50.00 worth. The stitches are after she was serviced, pink on top, white in bobbin. Tomorrow is my 43rd anniversary to a husband that puts up with all my machines and sewing stash....so it seemed like it must have been meant for me. Whoooopppeee! I think he got off pretty cheap.

    Good deal! It does look like she had a few dust bunnies before you got to her.

    O.M.G! I actually gasped when I saw that first picture of lint...and then the next two! Holy Moley! That said, the stitches are perfect, aren't they? I think you got a very good deal.

    Stunning mocah 301. She will serve you well. The cabinet is nice and the stool is the price. Not many come with the stool.

    Great buy!! It's not too often that you find a cabinet with a matching stool AND a good machine.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    You did good, girl. That stool is worth the $50 you paid. They are getting hard to find. The machine brings back memories for me..... taught sewing in a middle school with about 25 of those..... I could take them apart and fix just about anything. I'd sure like to find one of those for myself..... they took the abuse of many a middle schooler and kept going. That's saying something.

    Those are awesome machines. At least you know she was used.
