    Hi! I recently purchase a Stradivaro. It is white on the top of the machine and light blue is the color of the rest of the machine. I am looking for a manual. The seriel no. is BHA5431. How do I find out what model I have? Does someone have a manual they would be interested in selling? Thanks for any help!

    Interesting information about the origins of the "brand" here:

    I see a model 152 manual for sale on eBay but that's it.

    I didn't buy my machine from the site you mentioned. I bought it at a Yard Sale for $5.00. Do you know of any books about this brand?

    If you go to the link of "interesting information" that MTS posted you will see that this is a model made in Japan, and is a "knockoff" with a name that would sell well in US or Europe. Not a real "brand", just a name they put on it, along with many other names.

    Since you said you bought it recently, I found it very amusing that this guy was posting about your exact machine (did you notice the same serial number?) back in 2007. That's all.

    Hi! Yes I found the links helpful. I wonder what machine they patterned mine from? It is a pretty machine but does have rust in areas so need to give a good cleaning. It runs but I haven't tried to sew with it yet. A little nervous about trying it.
