This is not an instruction book though it does contain many useful tips on threading, maintenance AND SO MUCH MORE. This book is about one of the finest sewing machines ever made, the incomparable Singer 201. For nearly 30 years the model 201 was the Singer Companies flagship domestic sewing machine. Here for the first time is its detailed history.

Machinists, fed up with constantly breaking machines and poor quality stitching started to look at older machines. Some stood out from the crowd, the Swiss Bernina, Swedish Husqvarna and German Pfaff machines were there. Professional and hobby machinists also started seeking out these retro beauties. On top of that pile standing proud was the amazing Singer 201. No one had to sell it to the users, it sold itself. It sewed like no other and sung while it did it, creating a perfect stitch. Here for the first time is a closer look at one of the finest sewing machines ever made.
