    Amarko & Crofton sewing machines

    Doing a lil investigation work. My grandmothers old portable sewing machine says Amarko on the front of it. And I recently obtained my stepmothers machine and it is a Crofton. Has anyone heard of either of these machines and would you know where I could obtain manuals for them?

    I'm not sure how old the machines are...but, Crofton is the brand name of products sold thru Aldi's grocery stores. I seem to remember them having a sewing machine a couple of years ago.
    I don't have any info for you on the Amarko...it is most likely a clone of a name brand.

    Yes the one from my stepmom would have prolly been bought at aldi's now that you mention it. The other was my grandmothers and for a portable it is heavy duty. I'd say it was made in the 60's or 70's I will try and get pics of them on here tomorrow. Not feeling to well tonight.

    I hope you feel better. Take care of yourself. There are so many bugs going around.
    Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.
