Greetings! I'm fairly new to machine sewing, pretty much everything I've ever made (not that it's that much anyway) I've done by hand.
Now I have a pretty sewing machine from my grandmother-in-law (?). So I thought I was ready to go and I just wanted to practice a little.
I'm doing something terribly wrong and I need help bad.
This is what I did:
I put the spool of thread on the knob on top, and threaded it around and up and down, according to all the little arrows on the machine. Then I put the bobbin in it's little case and put the case back in the machine.
I raised the foot, I put my fabric under it and I lowered it back down on to my fabric. Then I slowly put pressure on the pedal, and the machine looked like it was all good.
HOWEVER, on my fabric, there were a couple of very loose stitches right where I started, and then nothing. ?? When I raised the foot and took out the fabric, the stitches were almost totally out of the fabric. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.
Thanks so much for even reading this.
