Wednesday our guild's charity quilting group spent the day putting together a quilt top.  I volunteered to piece the backing at home, but rather than unpack my Janome, I plugged in my "new" Singer 301.  I do believe that I am in L-O-V-E with this machine!  It has a beautiful straight stitch and hums right along as if it was new...the only thing it lacks is a needle up button!

To see the quilt top that we put together on Wednesday click over to Hills Creek Quilter and read Anya's Many Hands Make Light Work post.

I'm so happy that you got such a good deal AND love it so! I hear those are awesome machines.

I am glad to know you have used your machine. It deserves some run time. It looks to be in beautiful shape.

Love our old gals :-)

Isn't that a great machine? The needle up is definitely a nice improvement on the newer machines.

I too would love to have a 301 some day. Yours is beautiful, and I'm glad it's doing a great job of sewing too!

If I could find a black 301 just as nice as yours, I'd buy it...I'm glad you found it, and are enjoying sewing on it. I bought a Featherweight a few months ago and recently took it to a quilt retreat. I loved sewing with it. So precise stitching. I would like the "big sister" to my Featherweight now. Then I would have both of these great Singers. Still looking.
