I need to figure out the model number of this Good Housekeeper sewing machine so I can look for replacement parts. I had thought the 3347-TW was the model number, but google did not give me a hit on that?
Thanks in advance for any help!
Fact: Good Housekeeper has nothing to do with Good Housekeeping magazine.
General information from Google:
"Sewing machines manufactured in the 1960s usually have the model number on the machine's front panel above or below the stitch length controller. On machines manufactured before 1960 the model number is located on a small plate on the front of the machine."
I have provided some links that may be able to help you identify your machine and help you with finding parts. It does seem that parts may be difficult to find.
You will have to join each group to ask questions but you should post on several sites as each site may provide different information.
Post the same pictures you have here and ask for help but it will be best to state what problems you're having.

We have a Good Housekeeper sewing machine purchased new in 1969, model 1091-TW, serial # 63994 and we need a new feed dog for it, but cannot find one. Can you help us get one?
Sewing machine repair shops may be able to locate the part for you. The manufacturer may have very old parts, also.
Try this gentleman:
As you'll see on his home page, he primarily does vintage Singer repair/parts sales but also notes when he finds Singer parts work on other maker sewing machines - not sure about GH machines but a quick email to him will result in a reply with a link to the part on his site or a link to site(s) where the part you need can be purchased.
He's an absolute treasure - he gives out a lot of free info, and has an amazing lot of resources for parts. I haven't used him since relocating to the UK but my friends back in the States who continue to use him say his services only get better and better:)
