|My own Novum New Mark IX - Sewing Machine + my Instruction Book|
So, a little bit of scanning of the A5 pages - and here we are :)
My machine is a heavy vintage model - just a basic zig-zag machine. It's labelled on the book as a 'Novum New Mark IX' but I believe that it is sometimes also known as a 'Deluxe IX'.
I have scanned and uploaded a copy of the Instruction Book to my Google Drive - which you can download from here.

Novum New Mark IX Sewing Machine Manual
Janome - Manuals 'n' Models Numbers
On a separate but related note - Fiona of Diary of a Chain Stitcher (a lovely lady - I met her at Rachel's fabulous meet-up this Saturday just gone) was searching for a manual for her Janome 7021 machine. I'd originally suggested she try doing a search for it as a PDF file on Google. But, having done that myself I couldn't find a copy anywhere... so I went to the Janome UK website and dropped an email to them (firstname.lastname@example.org). A lovely lady called Helen sent me the manual file. But, get this... the file was for a model 521(E). So, I quickly dropped her an email back - as I thought she'd made an error. It turns out that the 7021 (sold in John Lewis) is the same as the 521(E)... and having Googled some images online it seems that the 521 has blue trim to it - whereas the 7021 has white.
So, it would seem that some (maybe all?) Janome sewing machine models sold in John Lewis branches are re-numbered and differently coloured to their usual products. I have no idea if the same differences apply to the overlocker models (sergers) too. But, I'm wondering and guessing if the numbering system is that perhaps you take off the "70" from the front of the JL number and add a "5" instead ???
