    My Craig's List Find

    I have a 301A which is tan with a long bed but have always wanted a 301A in Black with the long bed. I finally found one on CL for $50. After a little TLC it runs like a charm and I am real happy with it. It didn't come with any attachments but I can easily find them on ebay. I have become so addicted to the old, beautiful, black, shiny Singers. This is now added to my collection of 1 FW, 2 201's, 1 Black 301, 1 Tan 301, 1 99K, 1 Spartan, 3 15-91, 1 127, and 1 66 Treadle. I also have a Brother and a Universal but I am so partial to my Singers.

    You did well. I'm looking for a 301 too and just missed out on one last weekend as the call before mine bought it. I'll just keep checking Kijiji (Canadian version of Craig's List). I got my 201-3 there too and it is a powerful machine and sews through layers of denim or canvas with no complaints.

    Gosh, my mom had one very similar to that. She let me take it when I got married, but being young and of the "newer is better" mindset, I sold it.

    Lucky you. A 301 or 301A is on my wish list.

    Gorgeous looking machine! Those older black singers are so pretty to look at. I love the way the lines on the harp are straight - gives you more space (as opposed to the newer machines, everything is curved plastic that takes up all that space).
