Question about Sewing Machines

3 Answers

I need a manual for a JCPenney Model 6601. Or at least how to thread it.

Have checked with Relics and they don't have one. I have not used the machine before and haven't used any sewing machine in decades.

Back in my 7th grade home ec class (I'm 52 yo now), our teacher told us that all machines thread basically the same and I never forgot that and it has served me well through the years. No matter what brand of machine, or level of machine (from little girls first one, my embroidery or my heavy duty industrial leather machine) they have all threaded the same:
Thread spool
thread guide
thread guide
tension
take up lever
thread guide
thread guide
needle
(the number of thread guides may vary)
Best of luck and happy sewing!

Manual available for Model 6600 at:

The 6600 threading sequence is probably the same as for the 6601.

I have a 7050 model JC Penney sewing machine. I can not thread the machine properly, because there are tiny loops appearing on the underside of the material being sewn? Help?


The only place I saw for your manual was at tias, relics. You can google it and see the one I saw, I think the cost was $17 for a reproduction copy, I don't know who else would carry it, but it will answer your questions on how to thread it properly. Without seeing it I am assuming that you do not have it threaded right, or it needs a new needle. I am sure that it is a good old machine and worth fixing, they don't make em like they used to. I am not sure who made your model, so it would be best to buy the exact manual for your particular machine. Sears and Penney's did not make their own machines, they had other manufacturers make them, like Elna, Singer Necchi etc. Sometimes you can even purchase a repair manual that a Penney's technician had, I did with an old Kenmore that I had, but alas, it only confirmed my suspician that the motor was shot. You may be lucky and find one somewhere else for less money but I don't have time to do more research. Good luck
