I have an opportunity to purchase a fully restored 301A from a local machine repair shop for $235. The cost is not the issue. Space is not the issue. The issue is that I already have a 1958 Featherweight that I bought a couple of months ago and now do all my piecing on. I also have a 2009 Jamome 4100QDC that I quilt on. I read here that so many of you love your 301A's so I have no doubt that it would be a nice machine to have. BUT - would I use it if I love my FW? What would make me want to use the 301A as opposed to the FW?
What would you do? And would you use the 301A if you already had two machines like I do? (I don't really want to start collecting vintage machines...but it is definately tempting!)
