Kenmore makes both mechanical and computerized sewing machines. Their machines are considered to be easy to use and reasonably priced. Kenmore sewing machines are made and produced by Sears; thus these machines are only available for buying at Sears stores or on their website. The Kenmore name made its first appearance in the Fall Sears catalog in 1913. Some of the models of Kenmore machines are Kenmore Zig Zag Automatic, Kenmore Model 83, Kenmore Rotary and Kenmore Lon Shuttle. These models were generally produced between 1938 and 1953. In addition to the Kenmore brand, Sears later produced the Challenge Long Shuttle, Minnesota E and Franklin Rotary.
Kenmore sewing machines went by different names, including the Iowa, The Burdick and the Minnesota. These machines range from uncomplicated and affordable models with basic functions for sewing, to computerized machines with many different specialty stitches. Kenmore is a very successful brand and it remains one of the best brands of sewing machines on the market today. They have a good reputation for durability and high quality. When buying a sewing machine, most people look through the manual, remember the important things they need to know as the basic settings for sewing and then toss the manual aside. After a while the owner might have a question, but the manual cannot be found anywhere. If you are one of these people, then we have some good news for you: the Kenmore Sewing Machine Manual and other machines are available online. Here you can download the Kenmore Sewing machine manual.
