My Singer 201-2

Hello All,

Yah, it's finally here!! My dh bought me this lovely Singer 201-2 off of ebay. It came from NY, and arrived yesterday. Isn't she pretty?!

The cabinet was already here at the house. It's been sitting in an outbuilding for I don't know how long. So it needs a bit of work. But it's useable :)

And if you look closely, you can see that my walking foot fits right on it!! YAH.

Not only is this machine in beautiful working order, but it came with some wonderful attachments too. The usual feet: hemming, binding, shirring, ruffler. But also these two beauties... a button holer and zigzagger.


There was needles, bobbins, tiny old sissors, a cool old iron (will have to get a picture of that for you), and various other neat, old things. One of them this needle holder.


With many needles still in it.


Another neat thing I haven't taken a picture of is a little book of matches....but when you open it up, it's not real matches, it's a tiny hosiery repair kit! LOL. What a neat object from the '40s?

Anyways, now I can FINALLY get some of my many, many tops quilted. And you might just start seeing some finishes....sometime down the line ;)

Have a great day. And I am praying that all you in the path of Hurricane Sandy are safe.
