1951 Singer 301 ~ My Newest Sewing Machine

Last week my newest sewing machine came…the one to replace my beloved Janome 6500, RIP.

My dear friend, April, was able to negotiate the deal for me with an eBay seller, niftythriftgirl, over the weekend the Genoa Candy Dance was on (I don’t have internet access at home…nor when I’m out and about 🙂 ) She bought it and I paid for it…a week or so later my pretty little mocha Singer was at my door step.

She’s a Singer 301 Sewing Machine ~ Mocha ~ Long Bed ~ Feed Dog Drop ~ Slant Shank for improved needle visibility ~ Light Weight (about 5 pounds more than the Feather Weight) ~ Comes with a great carrying case ~ Gear Driven…no belts ~ Built-in Fold down Handle ~ Front Mounted light ~ Great for Quilters with the free-motion capability.

I’m really happy with this machine! Extremely happy with the seller and the awesome packaging job they did.

I have a 1951 Singer 99-13 for sale should anyone want it! $75 if you’re in the Reno-Sparks area. Works great, comes with original wooden dome carrying case & key, foot pedal, and some of it’s attachments, bobbins, and footsies.

    Hey awesome!! I am in the market for one! My aunt gave me some money for my first sewing machine, and I’m curious what you would suggest? Any ideas?

    Interesting… I have about a $200 budget. Do you think an old singer can go for that? I also found an older machine, but I think it needs fixing. Is that expensive to do? Thanks for your answers! 🙂

    I am SO glad it’s working out for you and sewing nicely! I love those fabrics I see as well. 🙂
