I bought this cute zigzag machine in 2006 obviously for its lovely green color. It came without a cabinet, so I gave it a “motorectomy” and put it in a refinished Singer treadle cabinet.

If you’d like to purchase a reproduction copy of the New Home 532 sewing machine instruction manual, visit the Gift Shop.

It uses class 15 bobbins, standard 15×1 needles and high shank feet. Notice the really nice quilting attachment with a 1/4-inch foot for piecing.

Notice the grooved hand wheel that makes it easy to convert to treadle, and treadling a zigzag machine is so much fun.

The red numbers and buttons add to its retro 60’s look.

This New Home is no light-weight. It seems to have been a popular model in my region of the country, because I now also have one in a portable case and one in an electric cabinet as well. Here is a back view with the motor.
