Age

Something tells me that the old Singers will still be sewing right along without skipping a stitch long after all the fancy-dancy computerized sewing machines are buried in the landfills!  Yes, my Janome is in the shop for repairs, so I pulled my 60 year-old Singer 301 out of the case to do a little sewing.  Without any coaxing at all, it sewed perfect stitches and straight seams all afternoon.  Age may be taking its toll on my Janome, but it certainly hasn't hurt this old Singer one little bit!

I'm happy with my Singer featherweight too.

Yes I think you're right. I don't have an old Singer but I do have my Grandmother's treadle sewing machine that sews a beautiful straight stitch.

I have to agree! They were built to last.
