Customer Question
I just purchased a...

I just purchased a "Kingston" Serial #C25175417. I desperately need an owners manual and cannot locate one. Also, who made this machine? It has several decorative stitches and I have managed to operate some of them, but really need a manual to fully know how to operate stitches.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

This machine is a "beautiful dark PINK"...very unusual and that is why I purchased it.

there's no model # just the serial #. The machine is a "hot" pink...very unusual & sews wonderful...just need to have a manual so I will know abt stitch width/length. The stitches I've used are beautiful. I've never heard of Kingston. I don't have access to a camera and I don't have a phone that can send photos. I don't want to know what it's worth...I just want access to a manual. Thank you.
