Montgomery Wards Straight Stitch Machine

made in Japan

This fine vintage sewing machine was made in Japan for the Montgomery Wards Co., most likely by The Brother Sewing Machine Co.
Brother made quality machines and sold them under many different names for different retailers.

To see and hear it run, watch this video we've made of it. You'll see how to thread it, wind the bobbins, drop the feed, and more.

The motor is a little noisy but it's strong and runs great.
(I'm going to take it apart again and see if there's anything I can do to make it run quieter. I'll keep you posted.)

This one is patterned after the Singer class 15 machines (15-88, 15-91, etc.)and like the Singer machines they are fast and powerful.

And speaking of patterns, this is a really pretty machine and the decal and plate pattern is four-leaf clovers.

This is a steel-drive machine, with more than average power to sew through multiple layers of heavy fabric and leather.

It uses standard needles and standard class 15 bobbins, available anywhere sewing supplies are sold.

Here at Stagecoach Road Sewing, we love these machines, and work to bring them back to the very best that they can be.

We take them apart, inspect, clean, lube, adjust, and generally look for any problems or potential problems. Then we detail them to look like new and test them rigorously.

Because we believe in these beautiful, built-to-last machines and in the work we do, we offer this free Lifetime Guaranty: If you ever have a problem with one of our restored, vintage machines, we'll fix it for free. You, of course, pay for any parts or shipping. See the details on our website:
