    I accidentally came upon this machine at a tool sale I went to with my husband. I was amazed it had a tag of only $20.00 on it. It is in the original wooden spring loaded cabinet and appears in wonderful shape. i am just cleaning it up now, but am thrilled with it and the incredible amount of accessories, books, needles, etc. that came with it. Will be fun to get to know what all it does; cams, and cams, and cams (smile).

    It ate my message again. Way to go. $20.00 is not a deal. it is a steal. That is just amazing. Aren't you glad you went to the tool sale. M

    Oh my! I have one very similar to that. I bought it in 1973 or 4. It is a workhorse. I bought a cheap Brother to lug around and really like it, but took my Kenmore out the other day to satin stitch around an elephant that I appliqued on a baby quilt. I'd just had it serviced and it sewed like a dream. Enjoy you machine.

    Great price. I have a Kenmore 1813 that looks a lot like yours. I didn't see an owners manual with the parts so if you need any info let me know and I'll be happy to look it up in mine. I noticed that you have the chain stitch attachments. This has been handy to have. Hope you enjoy your new machine.
