I’ve Lost My Electric Sewing Machine Manual. Help!

What to do if you can’t find your Sewing Machine Manual

Everything you need to know about your electric sewing machine, can be found in your sewing machine manual – if you can find it that is. So I hope you have popped it in a safe place. You know, the junk drawer in the kitchen is a good place to start looking.

Sewing Machine Instructions

If you are anything like me when you get a new toy – scratch that, I mean essential item –  all I want to do is to use it straight away  and consequently I can get frustrated when I can’t get it to do what I want it to do. I’m sure you’re not like that. So if you are at this point now, understand that you will be able to achieve everything that your machine is capable of doing, by having this important little book to hand.

How to Use:

The manual for your sewing machine will guide you through every step of operating your model. It will give you the details you need to use any built in stitches or features your sewing machine has to offer. It will help when the machine malfunctions by offering troubleshooting details. Some companies will do this from their online website these days as well.

Care & Maintenance:

Always try to keep the machine manual with the sewing machine. Like many people I suspect, I have good intentions of keeping all my gadget manuals in one place where I know where they all are…..well, how about keeping  the manual in a plastic bag with a zip top that is taped to the machine case. That way the machine manual is with the machine all the time. I must try and remember to do this myself and take it out of the junk drawer..
If the original manual is not available, most companies offer photocopies of the original  or as I mention above, you may be able to access it from the company’s website.

Replacement Manuals:

Sewing machines companies do understand that machine manuals get lost (misplaced) and will assist you in replacing an original manual for any sewing machine, even the sewing machine you inherited or bought at a Car Boot sale.

  • Sewing machine manuals are considered a part when you are trying to locate one.
  • Always have your machine make and model at hand when finding a manual.
  • Contacting the company that produced your machine will get you started to obtaining a manual.
