    Nancy, here's a link to the table. http://www.ismacs.net/singer_sewing_...umber-314.html As you can see it's for a long bed 301. Since you have a short bed I'd recommend you keep you eye out for the table I have. It would suit you better as it fits both short bed 301'a and 401's/501's......and I know you own both! http://www.ismacs.net/singer_sewing_...0-500-301.html

    Isn't that in Arizona? Where is there a Tempe area in Sacramento?

    This is from yesterday's ISMACS digest. The pdf is interesting, no pictures but some good machine information. This was posted by David from Kent, England.

    I was doing a search for a Singer 96KSV7 and stumbled across the following
    catalogue, section 1 of which is sewing machines, and not just those in
    the West Dunbartonshire collection:

    http://www.stickssn.org/site/media/E...ster%20Catalog
    ue%20for%20Scotland.pdf

    If anyone has any views on how complete this is, for example, I'd be
    interested.

    I have already noticed in the 'maker not recorded' a 31-2 and 31k15 -
    probably Singer. The K31-4 is probably the Singer 31K4 which John
    Langdon(?) has photographed. This was used for decorative stitching on the
    end of corset bones, the needle stopping at the end of each stitch so the
    fabric could be moved by hand. House built the mechanism for this into the
    treadle base, but I am not sure about Singer's: I'd love to crank her over
    and see.

    Nancy's comments about treadling out doors in the storage shed sounds peaceful and relaxing.

    Just the reason I put a hand crank on my 99 so I can take it camping when we start going this year!! I can't wait to be sitting up in the redwoods sewing away hearing only the nice little tick tick of the machine and all the birds and the wind in the trees!!

DH joins me every once in a while and we have lunch I'v cooked on the stove. Then he is gone again. I come back to the house around 4 and tell him "I'm home". It's been so nice. I have several machines to choose from FW's, 301"s, Davis VF, 319,Franklin treadle and my 66 treadle.
    Now THIS sounds like my idea of a perfect setup....You are a lucky lady!!

    I too have my HC for that same reason. Plus, I want to sit out in backyard on nice days piecing away while watching my dog chase the "killer" squirrels that try to enter the yard.

    I can't get the link to work, even after copy and pasting.

    Nancy,
    Original 221 tables all have a rounded black skirt around the edge.
    The 301/401 tables have a tan skirt that slopes. Easy to spot the differences
    once you know them. The long bed table's cut out is a rectangle and the short has a bump-out on the right.

    Candace, Sharon, and Cathy thank you for answering my question. I have the 221 table, but it is put up so I couldn't compare the two. I do have the short bed 301, and a 401a, and 503a, so it would be nice to get a table that would work with all of them!

    Monica, I just figured the Tempe was short for Temperance Creek, which is not far from me! But, after seeing your e-mail I looked up the area code too - that is Arizona!

    Never heard of a Tempe or Temperance Creek, and it was the area code that was my clue.
