Welcome to the Quilting Board!
NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
good mothers let you lick the beaters - great mothers turn it off first
So thats how I've gotten into this! Maybe we should have a warning lable for oil cans! LOL
QU=miriam;4671232]Glad to have you around! Just be careful not to get any sewing machine oil on your hands, it gets in your blood and then you will want to start fixing sewing machines. The next thing you know you won't have any room to move around in your house.[/QUOTE]
Well...just as I was about to pull out of my drive way, turn the radio up, and point my little car to the big city, got a message from my 301 seller--the machine was not to be. Story was that the it was "given" to her by a lady who saw the CL ad and wanted it back. I'm thinking likely story. Oh well...one will come my way. Probably just a karmic way of letting me know I should hit a couple of estate sales so I could bring home some funky retro fabric.
It's not a 301, but it does have black in it! There's probably a yard of the dots, and the roses have at least 4 yards. The color looks more blue than it is, should be a black background. No idea of the date, not even sure if it's 100% cotton, but it made me happy. I think I might try to make my sister and cutie-pie niece matching aprons with the roses. Apparently my niece is getting her own kitchen set for Christmas.
DH got the 201 for $25.00 and it purrs like a kitten and so quiet. Needs a little cleaning (tape on needleplate for seam guide gunk). Came with 2 bobbins, standard foot, zipper foot, needles, screw drivers and the ladies daughter is gonna send us the book that goes with it. So, I'm happy with my new addition since I didn't have a 201. And the cabinet is real nice too, not fancy but nice.
