What’s better than an Art Deco Singer 201? Two! Meet her sister, the 201K… <3 This is the English version, made in Great Britain sometime in June 1939, just on the eve of the Second World War. It still has its motor (although it’s wired for a UK electric system) and it also can work in manual mode with a treadle. It came with the original owner’s manual and some advertising literature plus there was a large number of assorted buttons stashed away in the various drawers in the cabinet. Overall, it’s in great shape and it shouldn’t take much to get it back into operation (it can be converted for an American electrical connection). This is a great find and it will be definitely have a place in the atelier. 🙂

See what you’ve done to me? I used to have my Husqvarna as main machine, with a White as a back-up. Now in addition, I have two Singer Featherweights, and recently added a Singer 301A. You and Arlene infected me.
The 301s are great, that’s what I use for location jobs, just grab it by the handle and go!
