    Stopped in at my Baby Lock dealer to pick up some supplies... This was not on my list but... How could I resist?
    She will be at dealer's probably a week since a tune-up and if necessary re-wiring, were part of the purchase price!

    Now for the bad part. She only has a zipper foot and 1 bobbin.
    Any suggestions on where to get the rest of her attachments? I'm pretty sure she takes a class 15 bobbin, probably the metal ones, but do they need to be vintage ones or are the new ones ok?
    Sorry for the many questions, but I am very excited and don't want to break my new toy!

    No, she is a Centennial model 201-2 I have seen the model written both as 201 and 201K Not sure which is correct or rather, more correct

    Takes a class 66 bobbin. Uses short shank attachments, so you can get them all day long on eBay.

    And post her picture here. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-103494-1.htm The Vintage Shoppe loves pictures . The 201 is a favorite. She's very pretty and apparently, a very useful machine.

    Just like a puppy, they follow you home, leave a mess behind them, (scraps, threads,) you have to pick up after them, (pins and pieces,) you need to feed them, (oil,) give them love and affection, and protect them, (NO, you may NOT borrow my 201.)

    Congratulations mom.
