I have an old genie singer model 354 ( from 1972). Anyway I don't have the manual for it and wanted to know what all the machine could do and accessories ( if any, that goes with the machine).
I heard that there is like a plate or stencil ( for lack of a better word) that I can put on it and it will do button holes. I see lots of old and interesting things on ebay but have no idea if it is something that is compatable with my machine.

Will a manual that old have the info on accessories in the manual? Where can I get a manual for a decent price?

There are people on this site who collect old machines - perhaps you should try posting on other places in an attempt to catch them! or search Bill Holman specialiises in Viking and Huskies I think - did ypu try this in the singer forum?

The most likely place I know of to find IBs for older SMs is from Linda at Relics. You can find her at:
