Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Charlee, I hope you get it. Honestly, I really think you'll love it. I keep telling myself that I need to part with at least one on CL and then I don't. It's very hard to let one go, once you've sewn on it! I know you don't do e machines much. Have you sewn on a 301 before?
Thanks Nancy and Candace!
Candace, I've never used a 301 before...have not, that I remember, ever laid eyes on one in person! There was a shortbed on the local CL, in a cabinet for $100...I stopped myself from even looking...more than I wanted to spend, and Lord knows, I do NOT need another cabinet in here!
When I saw this one on a CL where the spousal unit's auntie (who loves me lots! ) lives, I asked if she'd bring it to me when she comes in a couple of weeks....she hasn't answered yet...
Good luck, Charlee! When will you know?
Nancy and Glenn,
I just saw my first one of those 160th Anniversary machines today too. FOR GET IT! I posted my opinion and review in my post about Louise in the Vintage Machine section.
Thanks Melinda....as soon as Aunt Kandi logs into facebook...I've already sent an email to the folks that have it, haven't heard back from them yet!
OK, to tell the truth, I really shouldn't open this thread... I'm satisfied with all of my lovely vintage machines that live with me and DH and then, I pop in just to see what is happenin' and (sigh) I see all of the cool machines you all have brought home in the past few days... then, I want to go look on craigslist. When I do that I am either sad there isn't anything interested and elated that there is a coll machine available. Where I really go off the tracks and when I start looking in somewhat nearby cities. Of course, there are 'usually' cool machines that get my heart pumpin'.
So, here is ONE of today's finds, in a nearby city that looks cool! Does anyone happen to know anything about this one? http://spokane.craigslist.org/hsh/3111662360.html

You can toss the motor and treadle that machine- if you wish.
Yes, This Cl posting is missing the reverse button knob.
