That is what my husband asked me when I told him I was getting another one. "What a silly question!" I replied. Of course I do when it's a Singer 301-A in a cabinet for $40.00.
It's in GREAT condition and so is the cabinet, so I couldn't pass it up. I took it to the Harlem Sewing Center to have the tension balanced and it sews beautifully. Don't ask how many machines I now have because quite frankly, I'm not sure. It's around 8 or 9. You might recall that I bought another 301-A about two years ago at an estate sale. I still have that one and I love it, too, but it isn't in a cabinet. A cabinet that has a knee control.
It's pretty, isn't it? I have my Diamond set up to embroider some quilt labels, so I'll be piecing Sunny's quilt with the 301. I'm in love with it! In the spring I'll probably sand the cabinet and refinish it. Maybe I'll stain it a lighter color or maybe I"ll paint it a cool retro color. I don't know. For now I'm just going to enjoy sewing with it!
