    Wish I knew how old she is? My mother had one many years ago and she try to teach me how to sew.
    But I was young and dumb :roll:

    I asked about a manual just yesterday. I was given this site. Least expensive I have found. I got the download, it was quick and easy and only $5.95. This is the page for your #.

    Many moons ago I had that machine and loved it. Unfortunately it got put in a shed during a move and was rusted beyond a clean up. You will love the cams! Let's see, I purchased that with graduation money so it was probably about 1975...

    I got this same one in about 1973-74 from M & D for Christmas...wish I still had her. Sewed all my maternity clothes on her in '77, and lots and lots of baby clothes in '78.

    I have an 1802 and an 1803 that are similar to your 1774 - you are going to LOVE this machine! It does absolutely everything and it almost sews through bricks.

    It's a very forgiving free-motion quilting machine - I use the monogrammer foot and release the pressure on the presser foot and it's like magic. My favorite quilting machine unless it's a large quilt - I do most of my queens and kings on a Singer 15. :)
