    Kenmore ?

    Are Kenmore machines worth buying? I've seen some lately for 25.00 each in a cabinet. Are they worth investing in?
    Quilting is an addiction that you can be proud of and enjoy.

    I love my Kenmore's. I have 6 of them. They're sturdy buggers.

    You bet they are! I also own few of the Kenmores, the ones made in Japan, all metal and very strong. Which Kenmore are you looking at?

    I've had my Kenmore for about 17 years and it's wonderful. My sewing machine repairman says they are really good machines--like Janomes for durability--because of the metal frame and metal parts . I had it serviced only once in those 17 years (mostly because I didn't have any problems with it till a minor timing issue). I am about to buy another machine (Janome) only because I want to upgrade from a basic mechanical machine to a computerized one. I recommend Kenmores personally from my experience. Easy to use, easy to fix if they need to be.

    Loved my Kenmore. I kind of regret giving it to my daughter, who doesn't really sew much.

    I love mine too. The price was right - I'm thinking it was about $150.00 and it still has more stitches that I use. I love it!

    Can't say enough about all 7 of my kennies. Great work horses and very dependable . I too have the very 1st one I purchased over 37 yrs ago. Keep them cleaned & oiled and you will never be disappointed.

    Yes, definitely worth the investment. I recently gave my late 70s Kenmore to my DS & DIL. It is still going strong.
