    Lots of you like the 301. It's a machine I haven't come across in the UK. Is that because I haven't looked hard enough or because they were not manufactured in the UK?

    My Singer 301 and my Singer 201. Great machines!

    oh this is a hard one. I am very partial to my Singer 15's. One is a 1946, the other was born in 1951. They are my go to machine. I have the 301's and a 66, and a 99. Heck, they are all good.

    I LOVE my 301's! Great for piecing and freemotion. Got rid of all my Featherweights soon after I started sewing with the 301. They're a tad heavier than the FW but ten times the machine!! So much easier to see the needle for threading is an added bonus. As for treadles I keep a 15-88 set up for FM and another treadle has a 201 ready for all other treadle sewing. Also like my 201 hand crank.
