    Okay, folks. After celebrating finishing my first quilt, I talked the DH into going to a garage sale and look what I found. I opened the top of this sitting in the back of the sale and said for $20.00, she is mine! The DH said, are you sure??? All of this...yes!!!!! Well, she needed a tad bit of work yesterday afternoon but here is the find I have been reading about on this wonderful Quilt Board...whoohoo!!!!

    That's the 301. I have it. You will LOVE it. Mine has a 1/4" mark on the plate and the feed dogs get the fabric easily. You will see how strong and straight it sews.
    ENJOY!

    OMG! That is an AMAZING find!!! :D :D :D

    Where I am, the machine alone in that condition is $300. Cabinets with the matching seat are rare, and that cabinet is in wonderful condition too. Plus the attachments all cost $$$ on eBay.
