  • Patent number: 4170950
    Abstract: A sewing machine has a machine housing. A group of pattern cams is arranged in the housing. A cam follower is movable along the group of pattern cams for selecting a desired one of these cams. A pattern indicating panel on the housing shows a row of pattern illustrations corresponding to the patterns which can be produced by the pattern cams. A manual arrangement moves the cam follower along the group of cams. An electrically illuminable pattern pointer is connected to the arrangement and movable along the row of pattern illustrations, in timed relation with the movement of the cam follower to point out a pattern illustration corresponding to a selected pattern cam. An electric circuit, including a power source and a switch electrically connects the power source with the pattern pointer to illuminate the latter.
