Locating manuals for older sewing machines

Before you fork over your hard-earned money to an online merchant for a downloadable file, at least take a couple of minutes to peruse the manufacturer’s website to see if there’s a FREE copy available.  Chances are, it’s the same exact file you’ll be charged $10-$15 for at the online merchant.

I’ve been gifted two older machines in recent weeks to use in my children’s sewing classes.  Neither came with a manual.  I saved $30 by going to each manufacturer’s website and locating the file myself.  The money I saved went to buy a replacement foot pedal for the Riccar machine I picked up this evening.
