    Cool Vintage Japanese 'Badged' Zig Zag and Straight Sew Sewing Machines

    Vintage Japanese 'Badged' Zig Zag and straight sew sewing machines. The thread will be for pictures and info for all heavy metal Japanese made machines that are not Singer Model 15 clones. Get your pics and post 'em!!! I betcha we will all learn a LOT from this. They will have different names and different features - yet similarities... well yeah they are sewing machines now aren't they...

    OH and I will start something for Vintage Japanese 'Badged' sewing machine with fancy stitches.

    Links for Japanese 15 check there first if you are in doubt: Will the REAL 15 clone please stand up and I just made one about the under sides of the Japanese machines: The dark underside

    The Fabri-mate has a dedicated left hand needle. When you straight stitch the needle is on the left. It is a good solid machine - very quiet - well made.

    Montgomery Ward - very simple well made machine - JC Penny and other department stores had their own 'badged' machine as well.
    Picture heavy here - I'll post more in a while.

    New Home is another sewing machine badge I have seen a lot. This machine looks like it might be ok but inside is a mess.
