    The 201 is one of my favorites of all time. It looks like a really nice machine.

Your decals look great - I would be very careful when cleaning that machine! Clean only with sewing machine oil so you don't silver the decals!

    Thanks for the advise. I will definitely be sure to use it. I am still going through the drawers, It was stocked full with new as well as old items. Everything from patterns from McCalls to bobbins galore.

    Today someone offered me a Coffin top sewing machine and sight unseen for $40 I am not going to be able to pass it up. I will get that machine on Saturday. They said if I was able to restore the cabinet of a old Playertone talking machine and bring back the beauty then I should be able to get the cabinet of this looking nice as well. So, I'll just have to see. I'll post pics as soon as I take them and find out what this mysterious beauty is.

    Thanks Dan, I've been seeing everyone rave about these machine, so you know I couldn't pass it up. I hope to do some FM quilting on it.

    Heather describes sewing with her 201-2 as like driving a BMW, smooth, quiet and all the power you really need to do something silly....

    I have a 1936 Singer 201k-4 hand crank that I prefer to treadle, Randi lives in a Singer straight leg treadle cabinet. Its a smooth machine, nearly silent when properly oiled. It was my first people powered machine. I love piecing quilts with it, also is nice for straight line quilting, but not good for free motion quilting.

Earliest one is 1889 with the latest being 1910. The machine I have has been made after that as it states Patent Applied for on the plate as well as on the inside decal. If anyone has more information I would be greatly appreciative.

I do prefer the tighter grain on the maple cabinet over the oak. I've only used sewing machine oil on the cabinet so far although I have purchased products to improve its appearance. I haven't decided if I want to mess with it or not. I tend to prefer to leave things in their original condition and I sort of enjoy the battle scars of a well loved and used machine. The pictures aren't the best since the sun in streaming in right now. It is a nice treadling machine and I mostly use it to perforate freezer paper for paper piecing since it provides such great control.

    Judy beautiful machine and I think along the same lines when it comes to leaving my new treasures in the state I find them in unless its something that only going to get worst over time. I have two that one the veneer is missing in the front & a treadle where the top layer is buckled...come this spring when its nicer out I will have to decide if I want to tackle these projects. Thanks so much for sharing your treasure.

    I have emailed/PM'd Charlee and i believe at this point I am covered, so I'd say let Ms Judy have a go at them.

    On a side note: On Saturday I just became a Grandpa!!
    ahhh I missed this Steven, huge congrats-currently awaiting the arrival of a GS....1st boy in the family in over 50 years, ya we are alittle excited. Enjoy your new duties as Grandpa!

    I think he is a Hoarder & to deny that he posts for sale....that way no family intervention---- that's my imagination hard at work. Lol
