Selecta Sewing Machine Instruction Booklet

Selecta was the house brand the Thompson Bros Dept store used for the machines they sold, regardless of make or model


Most of the machines they sold were manufactured in Germany by Gritzner. This manual is for a Gritzner vibrating shuttle machine circa late 1920s early '30s.
Gritzner made a number of models, but this manual is suitable for most of the models which use this style of shuttle and bobbin:
German style VS Bobbin (new)

Please note that I am not selling the original (which has been archived) but a faithful reproduction which has been carefully scanned, digitally repaired and reconstructed with no alteration to the original text. However, I have included a reproduction note and disclaimer.

And if you require bobbins and/or shuttle, check out this page

The 16 page reproduction booklet (20 pages including cover) is A5 size (the original was 138mm × 205mm).

No copyright is to be inferred by this reproduction, I only produced it to assist fellow vintage sewing machine enthusiasts
and seek only to be compensated a little for the time spent digitally reconstructing and the expense of printing.
