    Very nice! I think I saw that on ebay when I was looking.
    I just bought a 1946 Singer 201-2 to put in Mom's old cabinet that I now have. I learned to sew on her 201-2 & decided to restore the cabinet to its former glory, or I'd have purchased a 301 - actually like them a lot - congrats!

    Congratulations - I know you will love the 301. I have 4 of them. I purchased my black, long bed 301 in 1955 in Pensacola, FL - clothed 4 children and myself. Only maintenance that cost was the rubber circle for the bobbin winder. Oh and of course, bulbs. I piece all my quilt tops on the 301 - almost a perfect 1/4" seam. I could go on and on about what a great machine it is but don't want to bore everyone.:)

    she's a beauty and looks like new, she must not have been used very much. Such a good find!

    Bore? I don't think you'd bore anyone, just make us all envious. I so want one or a featherweight.

    I have a 301 portable and I love it. I use it when I need an extra machine for granddaughters of even if I want to watch TV with my husband. I set it on the kitchen table for the evening. It has a beautiful stitch.

    What a beautiful machine and in such great shape. I just bought my first vintage machine, a 66 and boy is she pretty! I know you'll have a great time.

    How lucky you are. I have my 301 slant needle when they first came out in 1952. I was a new registered nurse and this Singer was my very first purchase. Over the years she has sewn wing covers and engine covers for our light aircraft here in Alaska for use during the cold winter months when not in use. They do not make machines like this anymore. Have fun. crisimi

    OK, I am jealous! But you so deserve this machine.
