She is just as loved as the others, but a name has never come to me for this little machine. I think she weights around 16 pounds. She’s a Singer 301A, which is a slant needle machine. She also only sews forward and backward, just like her sister machine the Singer 221 FW. That slant needle makes it a little easier to see what you’re sewing though and I really like to use her. She makes a beautiful stitch.
These machines are not as collectible as the FW. They cost less generally than the FW. In my opinion they are a great little machine. Made very similarly to the FW, they use the exact same bobbin. This would be a great substitute for anyone who wants a FW, but can’t afford one.
I believe this little darling was made sometime in the 1960’s. If you have a name suggestion for her, please leave it in the comments section. I’d love to finally give her the name she deserves. With your help, I may be able to.
