This is my sewing machine cover for my Kenmore 1060 that is about 3/4 the size of a regular sewing machine. I received several swatches from the fabric stash of a friend of mine in Japan—it was a great way to get to know one another. As a way to remember her while I sew, I crazy quilted all her swatches (and a a couple of bits from my stash) onto this heavy duty jean fabric, leaving edges raw.
Unlike the Kenmore 1030-1040-1050 models, the Kenmore 1060 is a garment sewer’s sewing machine. It’s almost an inch taller than the 1030-1040-1050 but still small enough to fit in the corner of my sewing table. I use it only for piecing and whenever I need a really narrow free arm. Hard to find those narrow free arms on computerized sewing machines these days! Don’t let its small size fool you—it’s a heavy duty machine. It has several types of the adjustable utility stitches and even an adjustable presser foot pressure for sewing all types of garment fabrics.
No, it does NOT have any decorative stitches. Thankfully.
And, yes, I used my 1060 to sew its cover.
