Welcome, that is so cool that you got a Dressmaker. I still have my very first sewing machine that I bought in the early 70's and it is a Dressmaker very similar to the one you have.

Were you able to determine the model # and obtain an instruction manual? My machine looks very similar to this one and I need to obtain a manual. I appreciate any information you can provide. Thanks!

Highly doubtful but welcome to QB. This thread is 8 years old and the OP only made the two posts and vanished.
