    Newcomer Here, have a Phoenix 429 ZigZag machine...

    Hi All,

    Thanks for all the wonderful information that is already on your group.

    I just acquired a very solid old German sewing machine, a Phoenix 429. The handwriting on the paperwork says it was purchased in January 1955.

    It has the manual but... it is in German.

    I would really like to see an English manual, particularly the portions pertaining to tension, threading, and bobbins. Or just learn from any of you who have this machine, regarding its unusual-to-me threading and bobbin.

    I hope someone here has the same machine :-)

    Thank you so much in advance,

    -Cecilia.

    Welcome from the Adirondack Mtns of northern NY state. I think you will enjoy it here. Unfortunately, I can't help you with the manual but you could try a Google search. It is amazing all the information that is out there.

    Welcome from OHIO! I hope someone here will be able to help you with the manual.
    Being a great quilter is 5% talent and 95% pushing yourself away from the internet!

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. Sorry i don't know anything about your machine but you can try re-posting your question in the antique sewing machine section on Quiltingboard and someone may be able to help.
