You are going to enjoy your machine so much...they're as much a workhorse as the FW. I got mine at a yard sale too. That's too much fun finding them and trying to stay calm. I should have been an actress. Have you dated and named it yet? Congrats on a great find. Oh, and in case you don't know it....this is a slant machine. Your attachments are specially made....can't be used on other machines unless they're slant too.

Super Score. If I found a 301a like yours I would be making room for it, LOL

you have the extra cams for the zigzag attachment......do you have the extra ones for the button hole attachment

check which foot is on the machine now...hard to tell from the picture but that could be your rolled hem foot

you now have the best machine ever made ( my opinion )

my 301A sends luv & hugs

Nice one! I got a Light Beige and Oyster White 301A recently. She was dusty and clogged with lint, but even so she sewed well enough that I made an offer. Now that she's been tuned up and serviced, she sews perfectly. My daughters have been sewing stuffed toys, and I made my first ever quilt block.

$60 is a steal for the machine plus all the attachments.

I have four 301's and love them. I'm always on the lookout for one, but it's very difficult to find them where I live.

a question was asked about extra cams for the button hole for. Well there is on installed in it, four more in the plastic box and at least one in a separate box. So that is at least six, more than I will likely ever use.
