    Such a gorgeous machine – I just love these old vintage lovlies. The first machine I bought was an old Singer straight stitch – I was 15 (I think) and at the time my income consisted of babysitting money, so I was pretty broke, and it was the only thing I could afford! This was 35 years ago, so no Craigslist, no Kijiji, no internet, lol. I didn’t really appreciate the vintage aspect at the time – I was just interested in a machine that RAN. I traded up several times as funds allowed, but in the last few years I had such problems with modern machines, that I started looking again at these older workhorses. While the newer machines have some fun and fancy features and stitches, I much prefer the sturdiness and perfect stitching of the machines that have shown that they can stand the test of time. I’m talking about YOU, 1953 Singer 201!!! 😉

    What a great story and a beautiful machine! you have much more patience than me. I would tell Dad that i would do all his sewing if I could have the machine right then!

    What a beauty! The only old machine I would want is a treadle. I learned on a treadle and somewhere along the way my parents got rid of it. Now with the costs of repairs it is cheaper to go on line and find a new one. That is a very sad commentary about life in the present.

    I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you will be able to sew on this loved machine.
