Born in Elizabeth, New Jersey on May 20, 1948 – Here is one of 15,000 quality machines built by Singer in their main manufacturing plant in a single day.

This beautiful gear-driven, all-iron-and-steel workhorse was manufactured at the very height of Singer's Golden Years, when Superior Quality was both expected and the norm.

Given the name "Badger" for her fierce strength and stamina, this sweet Singer 201 machine is all tricked out in her original nickel-silver detailing. Entirely cleaned and rewired, top to bottom, here in our own Raymond, Maine workshop, she has been beautifully restored to her original, perfect, purrrrr-fect running order.

The Singer Model 201 is Serious Machine – all-metal and heavy-duty and powered by a foot-operated control, she features a built-in thread cutter, carries a needle Size 8 to Size 22, no problem … and she’ll sew her way through the most delicate of satins and laces to leathers, canvas, denims and upholstery. What a workhorse!

A solid, reliable machine you will use every day – care for her with a bit of brushing under the plate and a drop or two of oil and she’ll purr for you for a lifetime (or two!)

The Badger Particulars –
Straight Lock Stitch Machine with a stitching range from 6-30 stitches per inch
Gear-driven forward\/reverse .68 AMP motor from 25-75 cycles.
AC\/DC 110 Volts.
She weighs a little under 40 Lbs.

Included with this lovely little jewel will be a box of original Singer attachments, including:
1\/8" Hemmer Foot
Adjustable Zipper Cable Foot
Adjustable Hemmer Foot (for wide hemming jobs like blanket edges)
Binder Foot
Edge Guide w\/Appliance Screw
Adjustable Edger Foot\/Tucker
Straight Zipper Foot
3 Bobbins
4-needle box, Singer 15X1 14-90
Also included is a CD ROM PDF file with the owner's manual and troubleshooting guide.

With this very same machine, your grandmother may have made clothes for your dolls and curtains for your room … perhaps your mother’s wedding gown as well!

For about the same price as a nightmarish wimpy all-plastic machine from Big Box Store, you can own this spectacular cast-iron-and-steel, gear-driven reliable beauty. She’ll be purring like a kitten when your grandkids are ready to sew … and their grandkids, too!

Your Badger will come cradled in a 1960s model Singer case (not original) in good condition.

SurrenderDorothy will carefully wrap, pad and box this beautiful machine and ship her anywhere in the Continental US via the US Postal Service. We take great care in getting your new machine to you and have found that the USPS does a wonderful job getting our treasures safely to their new home – and this means a lot to us. Other private shippers may charge a few dollars less, but they play far too rough with breakables for our liking.

Please understand that, due to the machine’s weight and postage costs, we cannot ship this machine out of the country.
