    Singer 301A

    I went garage saling today and found a Singer 301a, in the original cabinet with a seat, $20.00, its in great shape and so is the cabinet, came with lots of goodies and extra feet, it does turn on and the man that sold her to me says she works, light comes on, use to be his wife's machine, she passed away a bunch of years ago and has now decided to part with it, he says it may need to be cleaned, i can't fine the serial number, but i haven't looked to close. My hubs thinks i am crazy, but this is the first machine i found for a very good price, especially in a cabinet with a seat, with a bunch of doo dads with it. Don't have a camera so can't take pics, i guess i need a camera more, hah

    Good for you! I am on a quest for a 301. I finally found my Featherweight about a year or so ago and so the 301 is next. Post a picture!!

    You're going to love your 301!! There's a lever on the left hand side. Press it down and the machine will lift right out the the cabinet so that you can take it to a class. The serial number is on the bottom of the machine.

    PS- You got a great deal!

    found my 301A last summer at yard sale, machine only, no cabinet, no attachments, and paid twice what you did and still think I got a good deal. Her name is Caroline. need to use her.
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye

    Congratulations! That is a great deal! Tell your husband that you could sell the bobbin case for more than you paid for the machine and all of the extras.
    Enjoy the machine!

    What color is yours? I got a black 301A a week ago, in a cabinet (no seat) for $40. Has multiple feet. I need to replace the cord before I use it. You got a great deal. Enjoy!

    That's great, I got my 301a a few weeks ago and it was $50 in a cabinet with a seat and I was delighted. I have pieced a quilt on it already and it is fabulous. I love the clickety clack sound it makes and I lift it right out to take to classes. Mine is the tan colour and I love it. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine.

    Why would your husband say you're crazy? $20 is less than a dinner out. :<

    You got a fantastic deal at $20 for a 301 in a cabinet with the stool. Oh my!! You are a lucky gal!!! What color is it? Easy to get the cords, try Sew_Classic.com. They have lots of stuff for 301s. I paid $65 for mine, no cabinet, no attachments, no cord. I had to buy all that stuff, so ended up about $125 or so. So, like I said, YOU GOT a GREAT deal!! :-)
