Perhaps, if I am lucky, this 201K will find a new home soon.
I try not to be too sentimental. I bought this machine almost two years ago. Max and I were visiting Mom. I was coveting a 201 I could treadle. I found it on Asheville Craigslist. Max didn't really roll his eyes when I told him about going up to West Asheville to fetch it. He went along willingly.
"Let's go to Malaprop's Book Store while we are there." http://www.malaprops.com/ We even had lunch.
I had no intention of ever letting this machine go. This past summer I acquired a 201D made at the Wittenberge factory. It isn't in much better cosmetic shape. It might be more unique, though I doubt rare. The stitch length plate is metric. So I decided that of the two, the 201K was the one to go.
I put it in the cute, little, wooden treadle stand and tried it out. Smooth machine with a nice stitch.
