    I just acquired her from my great grandmother. She always said she wanted me to have her and I finally do :)

    I am sending her to Billy so that he can make her purr like a kitten.

    I have named her Ma.... after my great grandma. :)

    isnt she beautiful

    I am so excited to have her, I cant wait to get her back and get sewing with her. I am shipping her to Billy tomorrow.

    I was supposed to have gotten her many years ago, but finally have her with me now. I feel like a little kid. :)

    What a treasure! It is so neat that you will be making quilts and other things on the same machine your great grandmother used. Such memories that will create!

    Lucy, I do not know if the table is the original to the machine.
    My machine came without a cabinet, but she sits in one now.
    Maybe Billy or another can answer your question.

    Love it! I FINALLY found a 201-2 last week - I know people say a lot of these machines are "abundant" but I haven't found that to be the case where I've been anyway LOL...

    So I'm really tickled when I do find something - the 201-2 was the last one I really wanted so I can quit looking now (yea right)

    ps - I just finished using my 201-2 for the first time and wow - is it ever neat! You are going to LOVE it when you get it going...
    Very FAST, runs through those blocks like butter....
