When Pastor B. died after a very long life richly lived, my inlaws were responsible for dealing with his estate and belongings. His relatives came to this country and arranged to ship all the items they wished to have, then gave the rest to our family. We have been dealing with the belongings for a few months now, giving away furniture to family members, etc., and donating blankets and such to the rescue mission, something I am sure Pastor B would have approved. Our lease on the storage unit ran out this week, so the hubster brought the rest of the items home to be gone through. One of the things was this case, which I assumed was a typewriter:
My husband wanted me to open the case and check out what was in it, and I was suprised to see this:
It is a Singer 301A, which I confess that I never heard of before, but is apparently much in demand by quilters, like the featherweight. From what I have read about it online, it seems to be a model that came right after the featherweight. Mrs. Pastor B kept it in primo shape and all the attachments are there, including a lovely buttonholer. I think I am going to have to send for the manual.
