Finding Sewing Machine Manuals


I can not find a replacement manual for my Dressmaker 2716B sewing machine. I have Googled everything I can think of and checked everywhere. Can anyone please help?

I remember doing some research on this brand before and what I can tell you is that the best bet is to see if there are YouTube videos for similar machines that help you do what you need to do.

Here is a link to sample videos:

The manuals are like needles in haystacks....almost impossible to find.

I think it is because there some mystery in who actually made the machines--some are marked Brother, but some may have been made by Singer or may have been Japanese knockoffs on a Singer.

That said...the other thing you can do is to create a Google alert and if one comes up for sale on eBay (either a machine where maybe the seller would be kind enough (for a fee I am sure) scan the document or someone may actually sell the manual.

If you have a sewing repair shop in your town, they may know more, especially if it is someone who has worked on machines for years.

Post back what you learn because I know there is a market for manuals for this and other Dressmaker machines!

It would be nice to have valid links for active sources on Thrifty Fun if you can find something. Just be sure it doesn't violate copyright!

Thanks for asking!

There is one site that may be able to help you but you will have to post pictures of your complete machine as well as close ups of the name and serial numbers.
Also, theses numbers are difficult to read on your picture so be sure to type these numbers out or they may not be able to help.

You can read directions on how to post pictures from a site like Photo Bucket or a similar program. This is not difficult.
Also, you will have to join their email message site to ask for help. This is free (but they do have a paid membership also). This will be well worth the trouble as you may need more help in the future.

I was given a Hilton sewing machine, model 303. Unfortunately there is no manual and I'm lost on how to thread it and everything. Is there a manual I can download or something to help me?

I believe this what is called a 'clone' so there are probably other machines that are the same and you could use their manual which may be easier to find.
This site has a lot of manuals so send them your information to see if they have a manual for your machine.
Be sure you give them all letters and numbers on your machine.

Since you really may need more assistance with your machine it would be a good idea to join some of the sewing machine forums so you can get help anytime you need it.
There are several really good ones so join more than one.

The only manual I can find that would be of much help to you is here.

I think you need to purchase this manual. This is a Universal ST machine that is a bit different from all the other universal machines I have found. The manual I gave you a link to has the thread guide on the side of the machine like yours does.

I purchased a Hilton sewing machine from Goodwill, but it didn't have a manual. The accessory box says zig zag on it, but I can't find out how you lift machine from base to get to serial numbers and can't find info on it either.

Please help.

On the website they have downloadable PDF manuals that you can download to your computer. Just visit the site here, locate your manual and download it to your computer.
