Care & Maintenance: Always try to keep the machine manual with the sewing machine. I like to keep the manual in a zip type plastic bag that is taped to the machine case so that the manual is with the machine whether I am at home or at a class.
Available Options: If the original manual is not available, most companies offer photocopies of the original manual.
Expense: The cost of a replacement manual can range from free to around twenty-five dollars.
