    So nice...I bet you love that white FW. You know, FW's in general just never really turned me on. Not sure why. I must be a deviant or something! :-D What DOES have me lusting/catching my eye... are the 201ks! They are in a similar white/cream color. So neat!!!!
    I didn't know this! I've only ever seen black 201s... Would love to see a picture of a white one, if you have it.
    The one that she is referring to is the later models that were a creamy tan color and were the same body style as the 185J/K.

    They come in cream color :shock: :shock: :shock: , too! Hmmmmmmm......................Looks like my black 201-2 needs to find her creamy sister :-D

    Nice 27! It will clean up pretty. For a machine 114 years old you did good! Those machines have a beautiful stitch and will sew through anything!

I would never have thought that so many people would have done that. I have one thats the same way. The cabinet is really beautiful and the drawer pulls are nice too! DH said you could ship it this way if you want. :D :-D :mrgreen:
    Grins.. nice to know it was a pin cushion booboo.. I like the cabinet, for sure.. actually like the machine, sure wish it wasn't missing so much of decal... tell DH uhmm if a prettier one comes along...might think about it..

    Billy what years did they make the white 201? I didn't know there was a white one either! Love the machine! Is this 201 as good a machine as the original black 201s, which were billed as the finest machine Singer ever made?

    That one was a 1956 model, Singer was in the process of groing and moving forward with their designs about this time and there were a lot of machines with similar styling. The 185, 15, 201, 191U all had the same style. I like the body style myself and I am looking for one of each with that body type.
