Re: Choosing a Domestic Sewing Machine
Siamese, First let me say Thanks! for starting this thread. It got me to try sewing and I'm enjoying. I bought the first Kenmore 158 I found on CL. It's a 12272. It seems to sew ok, but it has some issues with the bobbin. The hook moves out of place when putting the bobbin in(I have to take it apart and put it back together), then it has a hard time picking up the bobbin thread. So I've found some others for sale cheap. Are worth checking out?
Wards Signature model UHT J276D.
Singer model 774. Comes with carry bag and manuals.
Singer model 237 with a nice cabinet. The holder for the thread is missing and the light isn't working. May just be the bulb.
Kenmore model 158.17570 with cabinet. Cabinet has a knee switch instead of a foot switch. It also comes with an Accessories, Buttonholer and Pattern Cams kit, instructions manual and additional buttonholer.
