Singer 201 free motion practice

I read online that the only real way to get my thread tension problem worked out was to make up a bunch of quilt sandwiches and just go for it. So I played with it for over an hour tonight and figured it out. Only a few snags, mostly when the bobbin thread ran out.

It does seem to be getting better which gives me hope.


  1. So glad to see you were able to get her up and running! Keep practicing, it pays off. I've seen many professional quilters that only use vintage machines like that, and the 201 is a master piece!

  2. Thanks! I'm excited that it is working for me finally. I really appreciate the help you give people with vintage machines since there aren't that many of us out there. 🙂
