From John M. Douthat, Founder of AllBrands:Sears is out of the Kenmore branded Sewing machine business after 100+ years! Sears Kenmore sewing machines have been made by Maruzen Japan (now Jaguar China Singer) or by Janome New Home in Japan, Taiwan, and Thailand over the most recent 50 years. Janome was the last private label manufacturer to make Sears Kenmore-branded sewing machines in their Taichung, Taiwan (Republic of China) factory. The Sears Kenmore-branded sewing machines AllBrands offers are the very last models available in the USA that were manufactured by Janome in their ISO9002 factories with 10 year warranty. Parts, Service & Extended Warranties for Janome made Kenmore machines will continue to be available, since Janome manufactures the same and similar models under the Janome, New Home, Elna and Necchi labels.

I have a Kenmore sewing machine 19233 and it's been a great machine but getting some age. I might buy the same machine from you but before I do, can you recommend a machine that has the same features but does larger embroidery letters or is a better machine? Also, what features does the Janome DC 3050 have that the Kenmore 19233 doesn't? What makes it worth the extra money?
The Kenmore 19233 and Janome DC5100 are exactly the same machines made by Janome in their Taichung, Taiwan factory.. You pay more for the Janome name primarily because the price is controlled through MAP, or minimum advertised online pricing. We recommend the Kenmore by Janome 19233 over any other Janome brand machine (including Elna and Necchi by Janome) because you get more features for the price from Kenmore brand. Hope this information helps.
I'm enjoying my new machine and use it about everyday. Thank you.
Fantastic job! Specially the shipping, it got here so fast I was shock! =)
Have recommended this store to others.
Had no problems purchasing the sewing machine. Just need time to use it! :)
I was able to contact the company through email and received quick feedback. I had to have the sewing machine quickly in order to get an order out. The company sent the order out immediately and I had the machine in time to get my project completed.
This is the first time that I ordered from your company, but after hearing some good comments from a Quilting Board forum, I decided to look you up. My Old Viking had just died and was looking for something to take to my next quilting retreat as a backup to my FeatherWeight. I am very, very pleased that I will be able to get parts from Jonome.

I was very pleased with everything you did for me; it was all very good!
I've always loved your website because it is the only one I find on the internet that has all the complete brands listed and it has all the detailed information and reviews to help me decide what type of machine was right for my needs. I especially like the advice from your sewing techs, videos, and the prices you offer are the best anywhere. I found my Kenmore (Janome) for a steal at $269 with free shipping. I was impressed with your customer service and FAST delivery! This machine I cant rave enough about nor can I find enough time to sew all my new and exciting projects. Its SEW quiet, easy to use, and sews beautifully. Best of all your website tech describe the machine as a well made heavy duty work horse and it was the best choice for me. It sewed through 8 layers of quilting batting/fabric without a glitch! Thank you All Brands.

Haven't had the Kenmore 19233 long enough to know if it performs well -- I'm satisfied so far. Chose it over the Janome 8077 (7033 without the magnolia) because my research indicated it had the same "innards" but was a better value, as it had more stitches and accessories. Would not hesitate to order from AllBrands again.
Wonderful price on an excellent sewing machine. It's exactly what I wanted. I had purchased an upscale machine from a local vendor for $1700. It did not perform correctly and was an exercise in frustration. I returned it and purchased your product for $269. So far, am happy happy happy.

I have to admit, After reading so many bad reviews about Allbrands, I was a little apprehensive about placing my order, and changed my mind about a half dozen times... But you delivered exactly what I wanted... Good Show! Thank you!

I got this sewing machine because I basically spend WAY too much on boutique clothing on my daughter who is 18 months and growing like a weed! So I took a few sewing classes, as well as what I remembered from my grandmother, and started using this. I use it at least 3 times a week and NOTHING has went wrong so far! I love this item so so so much I am giving it to my niece who is getting into sewing as well for her daughter, for Christmas! I know she is going to be so surprised, and I am even going to sneak in some fabric in there to get her started. This is great for all the moms who are wanting to save a few bucks, and not have to spend an arm and a leg on a sewing machine! I would totally recommend this to anyone that I know! This is such a great product, my money was well spent on this purchase, and my husband even agreed with me on this one for once! :) I think this would make a great Christmas present since Christmas is coming up! Also its really super easy to change threads in and out!

Wow, i cannot say enough good things about the Kenmore 19233 Computerized Sewing Machine!! Using this machine it was the first time I'd ever used a computerized sewing machine, but I don't think i can ever go back!! This sewing machine has ALL the features a seamstress would need, wether novice or experienced. One of my favorite features (and don't laugh at me) is the button you push to tell the machine whether to leave the needle up or put it down when you stop sewing. I know it sounds silly, but this feature makes it SO easy to do 90 degree corners. Another great feature is that you don't have to do anything to the clutch when winding bobbins. You just stick the bobbin on there, and slide the holder over. No messing with releasing the clutch, etc. I am also a big fan of the clean bobbin plate! (The cover over the bobbin and bobbin holder.) No more guessing if your bobbin is about to run out- just glance at it and you'll know!!

I LOVE my Kenmore machine... I've had it over 3 years. It's a work horse, I opted for the computerized machine over the more basic ones for all the stitch options which I really like but honestly haven't used much. LOL! I can though because I have them :) If you do use the more decorative stitches make sure to use stabilizer or your machine will jam up and eat your project... that's with any machine and decorative stitches if you ask me. I opted out on the warranty, I wanted to keep my machine close to home and didn't like the idea of having to have it shipped off and out of pocket for 2 to 3 weeks. I've had it cleaned once when it seemed to make a weird noise - took it to my local shop, cost about $100 to clean had it back within like 3 days and it was like new again. I can say I have not really had any problems at all from it. It sews great and the stitch quality is on par with higher end brands that I have seen. It's a hefty solid machine but not nearly as heavy as some of the higher end machines I've seen some of the other ladies bring to class. They break out the several thousand dollar extremely heavy needing it's own tote machines. This is light and easy enough to take to class. It's been reliable which worried me at first since it's computerized - I was afraid it might have Gremlins but so far none which is saying something these days! I have read it's made by the same people who make Janome another high end sewing machine brand. I purchased it for $349 on sale... they were running over $400 reg. price at that time about 3 yrs ago. The only thing and I mean only thing I'm not crazy about with this machine is trying to free motion quilt on it. I have free motion quilted some on my embroidery machine and it's smooth and does very well with it but for some reason I think it's tension issues Kenny just doesn't do a great job at it esp. making quick turns or small loops. So we came to a mutual understanding that I would use my other machine for that. It does make a really nice buttonholes even better than my embroidery machine in my opinion. That being said it's an outstanding machine esp. for the price I paid most other machines of this quality/features would run you $600 plus. If you don't need all these features then given my experience with this product I would think the machines with less features and a cheaper price would do a good job as well! I have recommended this machine to people!!!

I wanted a nice sewing machine that would last me for many years. I like the digital features offered on the Kenmore Machines. I purchased the Kenmore 385.19233 model which has the PINK spin wheel. I watched the video which helped to orient me to the features of the machine and then was able to use them. Since I am a novice at sewing, I really liked the simplicity of threading the machine, as well as the ease of changing the feet on the machine. I also really like the auto thread feature. This machine has several stich options which is nice. It also comes with a plastic cover which is nice for storage. I wanted an electronic machine as it offers a few more features than the the non electron machines yet it is still easy to use.
i was very impressed with every step of my order. i would definately recommend allbrands.. i would not hesitate to shop here again...
I looked for THIS machine on the web for two YEARS! I bought it in 2000 and I love it, but my old machine is getting worn out. I was SO happy to see that you had it: you can't buy it at Sears anymore! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
This was my first experience with your Allbrands. Your honesty in the write up of the product convinced me to purchase the sewing machine. I am so glad that I did. I absolutely love the way it sews. I wanted a machine with a straight stitch plate as an attachment and I got so much more. I thought it would be a couple of weeks before I got it but sewing machine came in time for me to complete my project. Thanks so much!

Great machine, my home was broken into2 yrs ago and this machine and my serger were stolen. Have not been able to find another until now. It did everything I needed. I am retiring in January and hope to save enough to buy this one
Very pleased with all services and would recommend the store to others. The sewing machine is wonderful for any that might be interested in the product.
I have had this machine for several years and LOVE it. It has worked like a dream through Many quilts and several formal dresses and much much more! I would buy this machine again in a second!
