    Singer Sewing Machine Card tables

    I am so happy. This weekend I found a featherweight card table. I already have a card table for my Singer 301A set up in my family room. I plan to set up the featherweight in another room and have each set up for a different project.

    This way I can move from project to project depending on what I feel like working on.

    Congratulations! I have the 301 folding card table, and the extension table that fits either the 221 or 301 table. They need some surface TLC. Definitely hard to find-, so you are lucky indeed.

    I didn't know what yall were talking about so I googled " 301 folding card table" and came up on one on Craigs list for $135.00 . He said also that you could make an offer. Hope someone gets this.

    Yes. Each of my folding card tables was made specifically for that machine. I found the 301 table on etsy and the featherweight table on Craigslist. I paid $80 + $45 shipping for the 301 table. Probably a little pricey but I love having the machine flush with the table.

    Sometimes it's when you aren't looking you find them. I found 2 ($10 & $30) at thrift stores. Both needed gluing and refinishing, but they are great to take along to mini workshops or our travel trailer. Still on the lookout for a 301 table, but do have 2 cabinets they fit in very nicely.
    Enjoy your finds!

    The Singer folding card table for the model 301 shortbed machines is the Singer ďModel 316 "MONTEREY" Utility TableĒ. It also accepts the 400-series machines such as the 404 & 401A.

    I have my Grandmotherís table. She bought it new in the late 50s with her new Singer 404 that I also have. As a child, I ate potluck dinners with the rest of the kids on that table, so Iíve known it for years. Some of the stains on the top of it could be from my clumsiness or cutting up while I was supposed to be eating.

    Here are photos of it with a 301A and a 403 in it, but oddly enough, I canít find a photo of it with the 404 in it....

    I got lucky and found mine in the Goodwill with a doily and plant on top of it. I walked by it a few times and then said to myself "I wonder what's under the doily". Imagine my surprise. I paid some odd number like $9.48 or something. I am not usually lucky with finding vintage machines and when I do (rarely) they are not cheap or in good shape. It took me years, literally, to come across my feather weight. And it was $150.

    I have several Featherweight 221's (want to sell one - getting ready to put it on craigslist this weekend). I finally found a beautiful table for my FW. Now I want a 301 (didn't know they had a table too). Now I want the machine and the table. I keep an eye at thrift shops, goodwill, etc. but I also keep an eye on www.shopgoodwill.com. I won't bid on anything that would need to be shipped - not a good experience in the past - I am sure my time will come, just have to be patient.

    I'm STILL looking for a FW...not for me, but for my sister, as a thank you for letting me stay with her and her family for a week each summer! She, too, is a quilter, and would love one for taking to classes and retreats. I did have a couple spotted several months back on an auction, but were WAY over my head for price! They also had the card tables that fit them, but....
