Default Found this....

Found this sewing machine in my basement.... was my wife's mothers machine. Will get some pictures later. Looks like something from the 50's-60's. This is the info I got off the machine:

Dressmaker Deluxe
Push Button
Zig Zag
Model SWA2000
S/N 90154
Standard Sewing Equipment
Yamazaki

Anyone know anything about this model???

There have been several threads on Dressmaker machines. If you just put Dressmaker in the search box a lot will come up. If the posts are empty when they do come up just refresh and page and you should be able to read them.

It's usually because the photo is too big. Your camera takes a more detailed photo than you can actually see on the internet. You need to decrease the "size" of the photo. I usually just change mine to 96 dpi. I use an old windows program to do mine. Any photo editing program will do it, it's usually called "resize". Windows has a built in program that you can use to do it. "Paint" is under windows accessories in your main windows menu.

I like it! It looks like it might take cams as that square thing on top looks like it might be a door for them.
