Not really. Kenmore is a brand that Sears put on all kinds of things made by various manufacturers. Sears usually specifies the requirements for items with the Kenmore brand, and they're not always identical (or as good) as the other items sold by that manufacturer. Janome is a manufacturer of sewing machines. Janome used to sell machines in the U.S. that had the New Home brand. That's what I learned to sew on. Not all models of Janomes are Kenmores, and not all Kenmores have been manufactured by Janome.
