Default New to me, need manual/book.

I just bought a "new" machine, a featherweight. It is not fancy or real old, but works well, has a few scratches/wear from use. It has the zigzag attachment, several feet, a second needle plate and the box is in good shape. Purchased from a family of our dear Guild member who died at 101. One of our other guild members took her to a LQS for a Sew Day two weeks before she passed. This is the machine she used. She did beautiful work.
Knowing the person who sewed on this machine, means more to me than having a featherweight. I have wanted one to take to Sew Days and Retreats. Maybe I can keep the quilter's memory alive another 40 years until I am 101. [ATTACH=CONFIG]566742[/ATTACH]Catalog 3-110 Simanco, USA are the only numbers I have found. I do not have a book. Any suggestions about get a manual/book?

Thanks Jane. I will print this. I am looking forward to sewing on Maryjo. (I named her for my friend.)

They are fun machines. I have 2. One goes with me in RV. I love the way they sew. Enjoy and do your friend the justice of making something pretty.
