The manuals listed below are all reproductions of originals. They measure 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches and are as close to the originals as we can make them, with color covers and black and white pages. They are listed in alphabetical order and then numerical order by model number. Some of the vintage Japanese machines go by several different names, so examine the cover to see if the machine pictured is similar to yours. Also, by clicking on the photos of the manuals, you can read a detailed description and see more photos of the machines in my collection. This is a work in progress. Please be patient as we add more sewing machines to this web sit. The price listed includes shipping.
