A real workhorse, this Japanese all-steel sewing machine was made by Fleetwood as part of the economic program extended by the United States to Japan following World War Two. I am the machine's original owner, and because of its great stability and weight I have sewn filled comforters and heavy coverlets. I don't recall having to take the machine in for repair except to replace the motor belt. When not in use it was housed in its carrying case so as not to be subjected to dust and airborne particles.
