Full Instruction Manual

Lubrication and Maintenance

Spares and accessories are kept inside the removable section of casing in front of the spool mechanism.

Parts (the presser-foot holder / shank) have broken easily (2/12/2014) but this machine follows the engineering design of 'classic' sewing machines, and so replacements are available (e.g. from Coles or John Lewis) and similar items for other makes are compatible.
