Singer 301

Now that I am a lady “of a certain age” who is rapidly approaching yet another decade birthday, I find that I more and more appreciate anything vintage that has proved both its worth and durability over time.  This is one of my vintage sewing machines.  She is a Singer 301 that I bought on E-Bay when I discovered my beloved Featherweight was missing after a cross-country move.  I love this machine and she works like a dream.  She dates to the early 1950s and gives me a very pretty straight stitch.  For well over a year, she was my favorite machine to take to Sit N Sew days at the LQS.  Eventually I found a good deal on a Featherweight at an estate sale.  I now keep this 301 set up at our ranch house so I can continue work on projects without having to carry machines back and forth.

I love 301s and have several! Taught the grands to use a sewing machine by making 9-patch pillows on them.
