    Cabbagepatchkid, that's my mother's machine - the one I have been looking for. I can see there are a lot of differences with the pic of my Universal two rows below your White. Oh, well, the Universal is turquoise and does remind me of my mother's pride and joy.

    Grant, the collage is great.

    Grant,

    Love that collage. I recognized a half dozen of those machines. They looked pretty darn good in the company of the other machines.
    I saved it too.

    T K Evans,
    Nice machine - looks like a lot of Kenmore machines -
    Here is a link to a generic zz manual
    http://www.dontai.com/wp/images/imperial-535-manual.pdf
    I don't know if it will help with the decorative stitches though. I see a plastic cam stack so it is from the 80's
    I'm thinking I like the drop in cams/disks better than the cam stack machines.
    Much easier to work on and they seem to keep on going.

    This machine looks very much like a machine my hubby bought me bran new in 1959. It was called 'Domestic"
    Purchased at the T.Eaton store in Saskatoon , Canada. Mine had 12 cams, but I've never seen one like it after I sold mine.Boohoo.

    I have what I think is a badged Japanese machine. I'm thinking it was made for Western Auto cause it's called a Wizard and if I recall correctly that was WA's appliance name. It has a brother motor, but needs the box for the motor and light connection.
