    I have this sewing machine, it was my first sewing machine. I bought it back in the early 90s i think. Do you know if this was made by another company? I have googled and googled but have found nothing on it.

    Can you post a picture? I'm wondering if this is like the older Montgomery Wards machines. The one I worked on for my aunt was white plastic and a pretty basic machine.

    That's a little more advanced than my aunt's machine; has a variety of stitches which hers did not have.

    I'm not sure the manufacturer is important. Is there a specific reason why you are looking for more information about this machine? It's a good basic machine that I personally would keep for a backup machine. It's the type of machine I love to find in thrift shops for the non-profit I donate machines to. If it were dirty and kind of wrecked looking, I would be happy to get it for $30 or so. In mint condition such as yours, not sure what its value might be -- maybe $45-50? It's not old enough to be vintage or collectible, so most of its value lies in how it works and how it looks.

    Yes, i am planning to keep as a back up but was wondering because i thought about maybe getting some different feet/foot for it. Are there universal feet?

    just sent you a pm on your machine. In looking for feet, you might try universal or Brother products.

    It looks like your machine takes a short shank foot. These are widely available and fit all short shank machines. Here are websites with a little more info:

    Most store machines are built by another company. For example Maytag used to make Kenmore appliances, I believe that there is another company making Kenmore appliances now but I don't remember who the repair man told me it was. So, my guess would be that another larger company made the JcPenney's machine. You might ask a sewing machine repair person they might be able to shed light on who.

    I was wondering if any of you could assist me on how to thread this machine. I got it from my step dad and it doesn't have a manual. Any suggestions on how to get a manual.
