National Sewing Machine Model 876

gretchen_growSeptember 28, 2009

I was given my first sewing machine. It is a National Model 876. I have been trying to track down a users manual and have not had any luck. Any suggestions out there. It is a simple machine with only 4 options: needle position, stitch selector, stitch width, and reverse. I took it in to be serviced and it is working fine. I was given a mini instructional with the repairman. I am perplexed now that I have it at home without a manual.

Thanks for any help.

I think you will have a hard time finding a manual for a machine that old unless you contact some antique sewing machine club.

The manual wouldn't tell you how to sew, only how to operate the machine. If you know how to work the machine to do those 4 functions, then pick a simple project like an apron and start sewing. You can also visit your library and get a learning to sew book
