OK, the quandry is over. I have purchased a nice Singer 201-2. It was 'born' the same year I was, only 1 of the deciding factors in my purchase. It will fit into Mom's old cabinet & is the same model on which I learned to sew as a child. It will arrive in a couple weeks. My sis & I are refinishing the art deco sewing cabinet/writing desk I have that was Mom's. Maybe once the cabinet is finished, I can post a pic. Its going to be fun to sew on an old mechanical machine again, though I will still also use my Babylock Quilter's Choice (nice win at LQS grand opening when they moved to new location). The treadle , Lady Albertina, a 1922 model 66 Red Eye, deserves some time as well - why did I ever think I needed more than one sewing machine?
How many machines do others of you have in your collection?
Mine is done growing!
