Singer 201K

Singer 201K, is the iconic Singer model, considered by many to be the pinnacle of sewing quality.

The 201K model was launched in 1939 and cost a small fortune, several months' wages for some. People paid for their Singers in instalments.
In the 1950’s a new design of singer machine was introduced. It looked kinda butch to the other which was thought to be more modern looking at the time.
The black ones are far rarer and harder to find and are the most prized versions now. These ‘new look’ models still had the top of the range mechanics and an unbeatable stitch quality, but by now the finest sewing machine in the world had become just too expensive to make, and so in 1961 production ceased.
Many enthusiasts will say that today there is still no sewing machine made that will stitch better than a Singer 201 and I have one in fully working order....and it is Braw!!! My one is the 201K which stands for made in the Kilbowie factory...

Here it is all set up...
