New Home was acquired by Janome. You could contact Janome at and maybe they could help you.

Someone will be able to provide some information about your New Home machine but if you wish to obtain information about value you should add/post pictures of your machine itself and also pictures that include the cabinet.


Also; supply information as to the overall cosmetic condition and more about the working condition.
By cabinet; do you mean portable case/cabinet or desk/cabinet or treadle?

Remember; these machines are very heavy and shipping would be very expensive so that usually means the area where machine is located will determine the final value as these machines are usually marked as 'pick up only'. How your area takes to vintage sewing machines could be good (some interest) or 'bad' (free on the curb).
Only listing for sale with 'trial' prices can tell you about your area unless you have found that your area buys these occasionally.

Many thrift stores have vintage machines for sale but most are sold in the $25-$65 range and are usually slow sellers.


Usually an older machine like this will only bring 'big' money if it is wanted by a collector and since there were so many made collectors generally have a choice of machines and they want top condition or very low prices for restoration.

Here is a link to the history of New Home machines:
New Home name has been around since (you have to do the math to find this year) 1882 although the machine itself was started in 1877.
The company went through several changes/transitions over the years until it was purchased by Janome 1954.

From the serial number it appears that your machine was made between 1883-1885.

I did find a similar machine listed for sale on eBay; asking price $40. How similar? No way to know.. You can place a watch on this listing to see if it sells.

asking $50:

Since you know what type of machine/cabinet you have you can search for antique/vintage online and maybe be able to find a sold machine like yours and that would give you some sort of value for a beginning.
You can also post questions and pictures on this site and someone may be able to help you further:
