I Got Another Machine – It’s My First Kenmore

I picked this up at Goodwill for 15 dollars! It was way work it! The zig zag stitch is just luscious! IT just sews so smoothly! It’s not the best at winding bobbins, but I have so many other machines I can wind bobbins on, so I’m not that concerned. It is a nice heavy duty machine! I got it for the satin stitch, since I’m making so many fabric bowls now, I wanted something that I could use for hours! I just love it! I’m also super happy it is a low shank machine so I don’t need any new attachments! I’m going to get sewing on it! Wish me luck!

    Great find! I sewed on Kenmore machines since 1958, finally retired my 25 year old one this year and now have a Juki Exceed. The Kenmore is going to the repairman to serve as a backup, though!

    Sometimes those older machines are just perfect. I do a lot of sewing on my Singer Fashionmate 237. She’s nearly 50 years old and a workhorse, and she’s got a beautiful satin stitch.
