Please will someone kindly help me? I received my Brother VX-855 sewing machine approximately 20 years ago as a gift from my parents and I was a whizz on it from the start! Sadly it has been redundant in a cupboard for at least the last 10 years. Last weekend I took it to the repair shop to be serviced through lack of use, as I have SEVEN holiday dresses to take up (vertically challenged!). Sadly it has been so long I cannot remember the threading stages to wind the bobbin and I have searched high and low for the instruction manual to no avail! Please someone take pity……… otherwise I shall be tripping up on myself in the Dominican Republic this June and cannot afford the ensuing dental bill! Kind regards, Diane xx
