Brand "Favorite" Sewing Machine

I ran across this sewing machine with the brand name "Favorite" and can not find any info on it. Can you help?

This is probably a clone of one of the bigger brands. Larger companies sometimes made machines for stores under a different brand. If I were you, I would take it to a sewing machine store and ask them which brand made it.

This is a very cool website. If you scroll down to Weed Sewing Machine Co. Est 1864 - 1899 there were two machines that had "favorite" in the title. This may be a good start for you!!

This site has a little of the Weed company history that made the "Favorites" discussed in the first link:

You could always contact the Hartford Historical Society and see if they can verify what you have!

If so, it could be a cool piece! Who knows, it could be museum worthy!!! You never know!!!

It would have been nice if a picture had also been posted as many similarities can be spotted from reviewing pictures of similar machines. I believe it is a clone (especially if it was made in Japan) as they made a lot of generic "same" machines and sold to different companies and stores who placed their names on the machines.

You should see an "Upload an Image" link to the left underneath the text box when you leave another feedback. There is a small photo icon next to it. If you are still having trouble, email it to images@thriftyfun.com and tell us where you are trying to post it.
