    and Capri

    my first fun Japanese machine was a freebie, a badged "Capri". It resembles several other badged machines. It is currently awaiting paint.

    These sewing machines are wonderful! Perhaps you can help me. I've inherited a 'Braford Deluxe', made in Japan. I'm fairly certain that my Grandmother bought this machine from the W. T. Grant Co. store in Yuba City CA in the early 1970s, which went out of business in 1975. I found 'Model W. T. G. #950' on the machine, and wikipedia says that WT Grant used 'Bradford' to brand their electronic items. I'm looking for a manual, and bobbins and whatever else I might need. I used the machine for the first time yesterday and was able to figure out enough to actually sew something, but am flying by the seat of my pants. I found several websites about sewing machines yesterday, including this one, but 'Bradford' does not show up much even though there are seemingly hundreds of makers that do. I wonder if I could find out who made 'Bradford Deluxe' machines for WTG Co. I might be able to track down a manual. I did notice that the Wards Models UHT J1276 and UHT J1277 are set up very much like the Bradford Deluxe. Could you give me any clues? Thanks, Thomas
