In no particular order.
I belong to way too many Facebook groups.
There are many Facebook groups that have some wonderful members with a wealth of knowledge, these are but a few. Best if you search the brand of machine you are looking for and join that group for the most precise information and instruction books. Some machines have multiple groups such as Necchi, which seems to have different groups for different models. Many groups have instruction books for free in their “files” sections. Necchi, Bernina, Morse, Elna, Pfaff, Bernina 117, European machines, Featherweights, Juki overlockers, restoration groups etc.
