That is a terrific price. the only way it could be better is if you got one like I did. Mine was a gift from a friend who collects machines. maybe I missed it . It came with a bobbin case right? I understand those are a little pricey. I need to get some more bobbins. I have all kinds except that kind.

I have a source of a 301 at an antique store. I'll put the link in the Classifieds (Buy-Sell-Trade) area. It includes a folding card table that the machine fits in. Also, anyone can access the BisManOnline site which has numerous Singers for sale. I have no interest in any of these machines, am only doing this to help anyone else find what they need! Notice I said "need", not "want". lol.

there is also a vintage Singer sewing machine group on Yahoo. Very helpful people with a wealth of knowledge. there is also a Yahoo group for Featherweights.
yes, if that is a black, long-bed for $10, I will cry too !! I love my black long-bed, & I thin they are nicer to see on than
the 221 (and I have several of them too). plus--they are a lot less money. the slant needle has the best lighting of any vintage machine I have tried.
congratulations !! double !!

Cannot thank you all enough! You have given me several links for info for my 301, cannot wait to get started investigating. Probably won't be for awhile because my DS delivered a Red Eye treadle to me this afternoon! Boy does it need work..The cabinet is in really bad shape and the machine is very dirty and rusty. Well, winter is coming so I won't be bored.
