    Default Kenmore 148.208 Small Straight Stitch Sewing Machine

    Does anyone know anything about a Kenmore 148.208? It's a small straight stitch machine only.

    What kind of information are you looking for? Do you have a picture? It isn't listed in http://www.searsarchives.com/history.../sewing_id.pdf The manual for 148.200 148.210 and others can be found at http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/lis_...M/LR708035.pdf The #148 in the beginning indicates that it was made by Soryu a Japanese manufacturer. Janey - Neat people never make the exciting discoveries I do. ETA sorry if this is all run together - I've tried to correct and it keeps it the same way

    Thanks so much for your help with the manufacturer. This I didn't know. It does say, "Made in Japan" on the inside of the neck. Here are two sites I recently found. Very interesting!http://www.searsarchives.com/history.../sewing_id.pdf and http://pages.sewing-machine-manuals....922470268.html
