Default New to QB - Hello!

Hi!!! I am new to QB. I am excited about finding a couple of vintage Brother sewing/embroidery combo machines this week. No manuals sadly... I did see a number on the Brother Pacesetter, I think it may be a model number; ZZ2-B701, however, nothing comes up on the Brother customer services site for this. The other machine is Brother 2010, and again i can't find a model number. Does anyone know how to get manuals on these? Thank you.

Welcome from South Louisiana! The Brother website has a support section. You should be able to find an email or a phone number there.

Howdy from Texas. Hope you stay awhile & enjoy the company that this board brings.

I found this manual for a Brother XL2010. Don't know if yours is an XL but it might be similar.

They have some manuals for the Brother Pacesetter but not sure which one is your model:

Welcome. I'm guessing that the 2010 might be like the one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baEITnA9FSY If so, there is a threading diagram at http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diag...ng_diagram.htm I found a couple of manuals for the 461 at http://www.sewingmachinemanual.net/S...ion_manual.htm and https://www.sewingmachinemanual.com/...607461761.html I have not done business with any of those places.

Brother and other companies have reused numbers or names, sometimes with different letter or additional names. So perhaps a picture would help.

We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

I have found that only the big red "reply" button works to give me the paper clip icon to work for adding pictures.

Additionally, when I have tried to "insert" pictures, it will take a while even if it is just one picture, after clicking on the paperclip icon. (This is after you have hit the "Upload" button and closed that window.) You will see the "busy" icon at the top of the page or tab spinning for a while before it list the pictures that it will attach.
