I have divided the Manuals Pages and remade them for greater ease of use..

Singer Manuals
Ephemera, Attachments Instructions, Paper Novelties, and Books About Sewing
Dress and Knitting Patterns
NEW PAGE - Service Manuals and Parts Lists

Many machines are abandoned for lack of a manual. If you can't see your machine in these pages, please ask, as I may have one which will do the job... At the very least, I can probably help you to thread it.

Condition means what it says - Good or Very Good means all in one piece, clean, complete, and fragrant.
Fair means usable but may be scruffy, stained, oily or dogeared, but complete
Poor means loose pages, scruffy, and/or fragile.

Most of the poor ones have been reproduced or can be.
I do not sell incomplete manuals (covers missing sometimes, but the information should all be there)
