    Yes lists are good. I keep an Excel list of my machines with make, model, serial numbers, date alloted, decal descriptions, price, where I bought it and what name I have given them. Sort of like having a big bunch of kids and you can't remember who, what, which or why. Each machine has it's own tab where I make notes of condition, parts needed if I am fixing and costs involved. Having a list still is not a hindrance to adding more to the collection.

    I love my 301A that I bought a couple of months ago. I used it for the first time yesterday piecing my first lap quilt top.

    Enjoy your new machine.

    Hi,
    I have a Singer 301 and its table. It's a two tone tan and cream color. Sews like a jewel. I have two longarm quilting machines and no room for extra domestic machines. Are you looking to buy a 301?

    So is a Singer 301 a really good machine to look for? I have a wht/celery grn. Singer featherweight, but not a 301. I also have a Bernina 750 that I love and a Kenmore.

    Love, love, love my 301 long bed!!! She is my go to gal for piecing and sewing and traveling-- she only weighs 18#.

    I have names for all my "girls", too. Goodness, I can't talk to Louise and not call her by her name. Thelma just purrs better with each seam, and then there's .........

    What is it that everyone likes so much about a 301? I might like to have one too. I have a 401A, a FW, a 15 yr old plastic singer and a Bernina deco 330 embroidery machine.
