Dress and Knitting Patterns

Many machines are abandoned for lack of a manual. Many more are ruined for lack of service.. The early manuals mostly told you how to oil and maintain your machine - please get in touch if you are in doubt about the model of your machine
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)
