The name Modern Home is what is called a 'Clone' so it's possible you will never find a manual with that name. You can most likely use the Singer 15 as this is the machine it was modeled after.

What is a 'clone' machine?
"The term "clone" as used here refers to the Japanese, and sometimes Chinese and Indian made copies of the Singer Model 15 machines. After WWII Singer's patents on the model 15 had expired and when our government relaxed tariff laws so our former enemies could rebuild there economies at our expense, the Japanese used the Singer 15 as a pattern and went on to embellish it. Many of them were made in colors whereas Singer only made the original style of 15s in black.

Other minor changes such as the bed mounted knob to lower the feed dogs were incorporated.
Some machines are not exact duplicates of the Singer 15 but share enough characteristics to be considered clones.
They Japanese made them by the millions for anybody and everybody."

I have some links listed below that explains about 'clones'.

You can join some of the singer forums and someone will give you a link to a manual for your machine.
This site is absolutely the best site around.

I would start with YouTube and see if you can find guidance there. When you are looking, there are machines by Brother and Singer that are similar enough to help you learn to use yours. I think they were all clone machines meaning same machine under a bunch of brands. It is a stunning piece! I love the look of it!!
