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 very heavy Rotary sewing machine. It is vintage, I think. It seems to be able to embroider with 2 spools of thread. I have no manual and I can't figure how to use it. Any suggestion?

Look underneath to see the opening for the needle. Make sure that the screw pin is loose so that the needle will slide in.There is a flat and round side to needles adjust until it fits snuggly(do not force it)then tighten the screw so needle stays in place. Gently turn wheel towards you to see if needle is in straight and goes down between the feeddogs properly. If this doesn't work go to google and put in the name of your machine and see what comes up,or put in how to thread the machine and see what links you can find.
