Default Help with Machine Identification

Hi!
I picked up this old Janome at a local op shop today. I've been unable to find out which model it is. I've found a serial number and it also says made in Japan. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks
Shell

Welcome to the QuiltingBoard!

What's the number cast into the underside of the base, beneath where "Janome" is cast into the underside of the base? That may or may not be the model number, but it's a place to start.

And it was nice of them to provide the pronunciation guide on the Janome tag.

I would send my photos to: [email protected]

At least that is where I would start. If I had no luck there, I would look for a facebook Janome group. Then I would look for a Janome group on groups.io

Welcome, Shell. Looks like a nice machine. I thought it was kind of interesting that it tells you how to pronounce Janome, however, the Janome site says it is pronounced - "In Japanese, the word Janome (pronounced Ja-NO-me) means "eye of the snake."

I doubt that the model number is 14 - Does it have a JA in front of the "14" Usually the model number is on the serial number tag or sometimes the first few digits of a serial number.

From my understanding there is a Vintage Sewing Machine - Non-Singer group either on io or facebook.

Janey - Neat people never make the exciting discoveries I do.

thankyou so much for your input! Ive happened to track down the model number and it is a Janome 367S . Ive only been able to track down a manual for the 366 367 tho. I'll keep digging
