I read on patternreview somewhere that it is pretty easy to sew your finger using a vintage 50s Singer 301/401. Is this true? I love the idea of refurbished all metal, but I am clumsy, very clumsy.
I am mostly looking to do some quilting, are these machines, singer 301/401 good choices? I don't need a great buttonhole, just a walking foot, a 1/4" foot, a free motion foot...thats about it. Just a pefect straight stitch, everything else is gravy.
If not the Singers, what would suit my needs?
