What a coincidence! I found a black 301 at a garage sale YESTERDAY for $10. It was sold by the lady who said she had learned to sew on it. I haven't tried it out yet, but it appears to be complete - bobbin case, a few slant attachments, carrying case, and wiring that is intact.
My friend tells me that I will like it even better than my Featherweight for piecing.
This sewing machine addiction is so much fun!

If you have questions re: 301's; go to the vintage sewing thread and look for Charlie. I do believe she has a 301 and seems to be very knowledgeable.

I bought a mocha 301 on E-Bay for $56 and considered myself very fortunate. She is in pristine condition without a scratch on her...the seller did a great job on packing. It doesn't look as though it was ever used. I sent her a thank you after unpacking and told her I was surprised that it didn't go a lot higher. When she replied she said that she was very disappointed at the final price too but that other machines she had sold made up for it. At least she has a very good home with me!! I can honestly say that I prefer this 301 over my Featherweight for piecing. My only regret is that it isn't a long bed...but I'm still looking.

The serial numbers are on the bottom. These are great machines, light enough to be portable and strong enough tohandle the heavy stuff, AND the feed dogs drop, so yu know what that means, F M Q!!!!!:)

Congratulations on all the 301 finds. I am so envious! I have been on the lookout for a 301 for quite awhile.

Scroll down about halfway. :)

I have a 301A and just love it. Terry(named after the lady I bought her from) was in mint condition and in her carrying case with attachments. I paid $100 for her, but well worth the money.

I LOVE my 301! Easy to clean, oil, sews great, real workhorse, fun, lightweight and just about perfect!
