Brother Pacesetter XL3001 Instruction Manual

10:58:00 AM

I've had this machine for a very long time -
it's a Brother Pacesetter XL3001, and by my mom's estimation it's from the late 1970s. Years ago I acquired (more like commandeered) this machine from my mom, and for a long time (decades!) it was my only machine.

Over my years of blogging I have had several people from all over the world contact me wondering how to change stitch length, type, how to thread it, and where to obtain an instruction manual for this machine.

Here ya go. I spent hours scanning and editing to make this available with one caveat:
This manual is for personal use only and NOT for resale.

I hope this helps people out there with this fantastic machine! Click the button below to download the zipped PDF file.

  1. Just an FYI, there are vintage sewing machine groups on Yahoo that one can join and crowd source manuals for vintage sewing machines. I did so for a vintage Kenmore machine that I purchased.
