    i just got a free Singer 201 from craigs list along with the cabinet (one of the hinges is loose so DH has to fix that) it even came with all the original presser feet.

    i just look it up and its from 1954. i have to clean her up and give her some oil but other than that she's perfect

    i just love her!!

    My first sewing machine was aused 201. That was 45 years ago & I still use it especially for upholstery etc. It has a really pretty stitch, nicer than my Pfaffs. I wouldn't think of parting with her...we've been through a lot together...lol!

    i think this is going to be my every day sewing machine.

    it has more throat space then the modern singer i've been sewing on.
