I used a Thompson Mini Walking Foot machine (don't know the model) in my upholstery class at the local community college. It handled my faux leather quite well. The other students seemed to do well with a variety of medium to heavier weight upholstery fabrics. I would not think it would be the best choice for very light weight fabrics. The teacher recommended it to the students for purchase. I've wanted one for quite some time but can't find one that will fit my current budget!

Pakrk,

I paid to much for it, but the 301 and 500 series machines have been selling for more than what I paid for this machine. Bought it on eBay, premium pricing.

Now, I have some serious questions. Is anyone familiar with this model ( PW 103-A)? If so how is it different from the 301 or 500 series machine. I have never owned a Thompson, but what I have read about them is that they are good machines and some sewing machine manufactures have copied the Thompson, so they must be good machines. But I still have this burning desire to know more about this model. HELP!
