The Most Important Vintage Sewing Machine Attachment

One of the most important “attachments” that comes with your SINGER® vintage sewing machine is the owner’s manual. Not what you thought I was going to say, was it?!

The owner's manual is a critical source of information about how to use, maintain and even repair your sewing machine. You’ll need the manual to learn how to thread the machine, wind the bobbin and use the machine properly. The manual explains what would’ve originally been included in the machine purchase. It details the attachments that would’ve been sold with the machine.

Each SINGER® model is unique so it is important to have information about the specific model that you own. This information is in the owner’s manual. The good news is that you will often find that many vintage sewing machines are sold with the original manual. If the machine you purchased does not include a manual, there is still hope. You can usually download the machine’s manual free from various websites. All you need to locate the correct machine manual is your machine’s model.

I’ve created a FREE What to do if You are Missing a Manual guide that includes websites where you might be able to download a manual for your vintage SINGER® sewing machine. Enter your information below to receive it and be sure to print it out so you’ll have it for future reference.

You’ll also see some websites online that will sell you a download of a vintage sewing machine manual. You don’t have to spend a cent to get your vintage sewing machine’s manual: there are many websites that offer them for free.

If you don't have a manual for your vintage sewing machine, I hope you'll be able to find one at the suggested websites in the FREE printable What to do if You are Missing a Manual download. It's your most important attachment :)
