Well, how cool is that? We could be neighbors! I have a 301 that belonged to my mother. It was the machine that I learned to sew on. I still do a lot of my piecing on it.

I'm a member of the Tri County Quilt Guild. They meet at a church in Fairfield and just started meeting in person again. Let me know if you're interested.

I love Tomball. I visit the area often. I am working to get my sewing room set up. My husband built me a craft table from IKEA cabinets. It is so nice.

My grandmothers and mother quilted. I quilted years ago but when children came along and I worked, I simply didn't have time.

I purchased a 301 recently and LOVE how it sews. I have a new JUKI Haruka (it is a straight stitch only machine) and I think I may sell it. The 301 weighs less, sews great and I like the nostalgia of sewing with the 301.

I can already tell this is a great group of people. Thank you for the welcome.

Welcome from the mitten state. Enjoy your older machine. Many of us are very much in love with our older machines and enjoy their ease of use.
