Subject: Coolest EVER total re-paint on a Singer 201-2 "Trash To Treasure" Date: 7/19/13 11:43 PM

Just had to share! My husband bought one of Eric's 201-2s for me as a gift. Mine was not a re-paint but is in pristine vintage condition. Watching his youtube vid, I think I want one in every color.

Having restored by cleaning and parts, but not to this degree, machines I have found, I am TOTALLY INSPIRED to learn this! I'm as happy as a clam when working on a sewing machineI hope you love this. I am not affiliated in any way, but this guy is great, and his customer service and *niceness* quotient are out of this world!

Can you tell there is hero worship happening here? LOL

201-2 Total Re-paint!!!

Thank you for posting the link. He spent all the work on a sewing machine, when most men would spend it on a car.

He is very enthusiastic about the machines. I also liked the featherweight video with him talking because u can really hear the enthusiasm in his voice. Very fun to watch. My husband loved the repaintng video.

I just got my grandmothers old sewing machine, that has been sitting in my sisters basement. Not a singer, but in good shape, with one piece missing.
I love the color of this machine. Could be an art piece when not in use.

I have way too many yards to count, and I will never use them up, but I will die trying!
