I am really in love with this little machine. I got it on eBay ( I know, I know). It was a good deal and the seller packed it so WELL. I don't think this machine has seen much use. There is nary a scratch anywhere. I serviced it, stitched it in and set to sewing on it today. The bobbin winder doesn't work. I forgot to attend to that. No worries it's just a matter of heat and lubrication. Likewise with the feed dog drop. I will take it to work and leave it in the hot car all day. That should loosen it up!
It sews very nicely and it has Zig Zag and other stitches. Unfortunately it came with the straight stitch needle plate only. I have to order the zz needle plate.
See what I made with it?
The little Kenmore (we have dubbed these machines Ketherweights) sailed right through the heavier fabric. It had no problem with four layers of the drapery fabric of the strap plus the two layers of the tote. I still want to top stitch around the top to secure the straps. I am sure it will be no problem. The shuttle gears are metal. This baby hauls!!!
