What do you need help with?  If it's a heavy old brown machine - you lucky dog!  Those old singers are great!

Difficult to say--although my guess would be "not likely." The information I found indicated it most likely fits a Singer 301.

My mother in law gave me her Quantum XL1000 machine. I would like to embroider custom logos. I have the sew ware cartridge and card, but no software. What do I need and where can I get it?

Go to and look under customer support, frequently asked questions and see if the answer is there. Or, you can just call Singer customer service at 1-800-4singer and they will tell you how to get it. Good luck

What kind of bobbin singer 301 machine use

The Singer 301 uses the same bobbin as the Singer 221 (also known as a Featherweight). Not surprisingly it's called a Class 221/301 bobbin and is Singer part number 45785. If you don't have a Singer dealer or large sewing machine repair shop in your area, I would suggest purchasing from a reputable online seller such as Vintage Sewing or Sewing Machine 221 Sale. Below is a picture of what both the older and newer style of this bobbin looks like. 11da97d.jpg
