Manual for Janome New Home 580 and 581 sewing machines

Hits 22568 | Created 2014-03-06 | Modified 2015-11-14

You can't believe how long it took me to find a manual for my new (old) Janome New Home 580 sewing machine. Here's one free for you to download.



There's a lot of people selling a manual, I've no idea if it's this one or not, the People at Janome sent this to me for free after I enquired about it. I didn't buy it from anyone online.

(The 580 and 581 are virtually identical from what I can tell, the person at Janome I talked to hadn't even heard of the 580! Apparently it's a bit rare!)

Enjoy!

Hi, I also have a Janome 180 but it looks different from yours. Where yours is dark on the front mine is red so I had to look twice, but I think all the knobs and buttons are the same. I downloaded the manual some years ago but I was hoping to get the real thing. Wishful thinking probably. xx

Hi, my 580 looks exactly the same as yours, but it is different from the manual. Where 581 has built-in stitch patterns and a button hole dial, my 580 has pattern cams. So this must be the difference.
I haven't seen another blue one anywhere, they appear to be mostly all beige and with a differently looking stitch width selector, although otherwise the same - with cams.
Do you know what year your machine is from? I was told 1959, but I'm not so sure.

Wonderful, don't think I've seen my manual since 1981. Hope I'm not jinxing my machine by printing this !! Thanks.

Thank you so much. I was given this machine and have a problem with the tension unit, its fallen off. I thought I would battle to find a manual but this came up straight away. Thanks again :)

Many thanks for sharing this - I've lost the original manual and after 34 years of use, my machine needs oil, and wasn't sure how to get into it, or where to put the oil. Very grateful thanks :~))

The Janome 580 (with cams) looks like my machine was also badged Dressmaker S-6000 (with cams). I have the instruction book and will be making a PDF to share free in Vintage Sewing Machines (non-singer) FB group sometime this week.
