Hi everyone! I hope you don’t mind if I share pictures of my favorite machine with you =]
This is my Singer 201-2. This machine is very smooth and strong with a gear driven motor so there are no slips when sewing through thick fabric. This 201-2 is a rare blackside which means it was produced during the war years when the needle plate, side plate etc. were not chromed, but dipped in black finish instead. The serial number on this machine is AF892303 which dates the machine to 1941.
I purchased this machine in 2006 from an elderly lady who purchased the machine new and maintained it well. This machine has been used by me since then and has been well maintained.
I recovered the stool, but the original fabric is underneath.
I think the 201-2 machines are the best machines. I have had several of them in the past, and its always my go to machine.
