Montgomery Wards Sewing Machine Model 30

vintagesewSeptember 17, 2007

Hello everyone!

I have a vintage Montgomery Wards Sewing Machine Model 30 and I am looking for a copy of the instruction/maintenance/etc. manual. Would anyone have one they would be willing to share or I could possibly purchase?

If not, is anyone out there using this model? I want to double check my threading and such, my tension is wonky and just won't settle down. I have used the machine for years, but it has been awhile... been through all I can figure out to make it work correctly.

I have also scoured the various websites that have manuals for sale, etc. but no luck. Just hoping someone out there has one!

Thanks! Appreciate any help you can provide.

I think u may be able to get a copy of the manual at sewusa. I was looking for a manual for a vogue stitch and went there and saw a lot from other makers. My vogue stitch looks a lot like wards and kenmores. I think they maybe made by the same manufacter somewhere in Japan and sold to stores here. Mine came from Spiegel originally so they are hard to find manuals for but good luck to u...I'm still looking...

This is for Craftycom,
Hello I was searching the web myself for a Speigel Manual. Then My Mom called & I asked her if she still had the manual. I didn't think she did because It was not with it. Anyway She did. If yours is a Spiegel Vogue Stitch I would be happy to copy the manual for you. You can contact me Via e mail @ & put Spiegel Manual in the subject line.

Can you post a picture somewhere? If I can see the machine, I might be able to offer some suggestions. I collect antique and vintage sewing machines, and M-W sold an awful lot of different models through the years. Early on they were made by the National Sewing Machine Company. Later models (1955 and on) were usually Japanese-made machines.
