Light Beige Oyster White is what they call the color of this machine. I call it two tone, mostly because I can’t remember what LBOW stands for. I’m old, and I never did have a memory. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!
The other day I was surfing Craigslist (such a dangerous thing to do!) and I found this nice Singer 301A. She was born in 1956. (I love this model of machine, just as I love Singer 404, 401A, 403, 500A, and 503A. They all have the aluminum bodies and gear driven internal motors.) I didn’t do anything for a day or two, but last night before I went to bed, I emailed, and today, we picked her up in Dixon, Illinois. It was a nice day for a ride (just a ‘little’ windy…Auntie Em! Auntie Em!). We brought her home, I gave her a bath, oiled her, changed the needle, wound a bobbin, put a 1/4” presser foot on and Louie changed the foot control to an electronic one.
She’s ready to go!
I bought another ‘very modern Brother’ machine at Goodwill in Sterling, but I haven’t checked it out yet, and if it works out, it’s going to be donated.
Have a great week! Where did the weekend go?
