I've got a machine that my husband and I found in my sister-in-laws basement when we were cleaning it out after she died. I took it home, plugged it in and pressed on the foot pedal and saw that it worked and that's all I did with it until my Brother started giving me problems. I decided that I'd like to get it working. It seems like a good machine - all metal, sturdy, sounds good, etc. but I cannot find a manual for it anywhere online. I'm not even sure what kind of machine it is. The front of it says The Dressmaker, on the side it has a plate that says Model 201 and the motor has a plate that says it's a Janome. Ive got it working for just basic straight sewing. Can't get it to go in reverse yet, lol but I have figured out how to wind the bobbin. Anybody ever heard of this machine?
