Easy to learn the knack, but it also means no electricity so the ultimate eco-friendly piece of kit!Sewing Machine Serial Number: EB699873 – manufactured 3 December 1937 at Singer factory in Scotland at Kilbowie, Clydebank. The K in 201K stands for Kilbowie. This is a beautiful example of both the 201 machine and the cabinet. The machine and cabinet have been sympathetically restored and the sewing machine serviced - a labour of love, and a joy to work with. The sewing machine works perfectly and the cabinet is a beautiful well built piece of furniture. Please note that being 82 years old means that the cabinet and sewing machine have some patina and signs of wear, but both are in excellent condition. The quality of materials and workmanship make the 201 virtually indestructible. The Singer 201 is regarded by many as the best sewing machine that Singer have ever made and is still one of the best sewing machines you will ever use. For straight stitching, a 201 in this condition, cannot be beaten and will sew everything from leather to silk. Many professionals use them and prefer them to any modern machine available. Just search the internet! (Use the correct size needle for the material.) I can provide the manual in PDF format.The cabinet was made by Singer especially for the 201K (and 15K) and is beautifully designed and constructed.The Singer 201 was made as a domestic machine, but was so good that it was also used in many industrial applications, including, I believe, by Rolls Royce to sew their leather upholstery. It is now regarded as “semi-industrial”, because of it’s ability to sew everything and to keep going and never wear out, no matter how hard it is used. If you don’t know anything about the 201 then just do an internet search!This is a fabulous original working treadle machine. The original eco-friendly off-grid option!
