I admit to being a little perturbed by all these questions concerning the whereabouts of sewing machine manuals. For rest assured, yours is not the only one that has gone missing and whose mysterious disappearance has prompted hours of fruitless searching for the recovery of same. It's not clear what motivates the thieving thieves responsible for the theft of such precious tomes, but something needs to be done. I like the idea of legalizing manuals and even making them free and printable. If the world made sense you could probably just go to the homepage of the manufacturer (euro-pro.com) and enter the model number of the sewing machine (8260) right there in the little box on the left, as you look at it, and have, magically, inexplicably, after the usual Adobe delay, a pdf of the entire manual right before your eyes. That would be a consummation devoutly to be wished for. That would make the life of that lowlife manual thief redundant, pointless, empty, shallow, devoid of meaning and purpose, a waste, a dark pond of misery and despair, and so on. Yes, that would be sweet.
