I don't know anything about this machine, but just a shot in the dark...do you have to hit reverse to make it to the other side?

Sorry I"m not more help!

I'm just starting to use a sewing machine, I guess I need some sort of tutorial because I'm sooo lost. I have a Singer, it is fairly new the model.

I'm having a problem with the bobbin, I reloaded it, put it back underneath & into it's slot, pulled the thread through, started sewing, but the seam underneath, is VERY loose, and MESSY looking, i adjusts the seaming options, no help.

I ask on here, because I have misplaced my guide to the sewing machine.


Are there any good starting off tutorials on sewing machines or singer sewing machines?

thank you!

Try the Singer website at

http://www.singerco.com/

Then click on 'I need help with', then go to troubleshooting.
 It may help.

I bought my latest sewing machine, a White Heavy-Duty, from JoAnn Fabrics for about $119.  Its work horse--nothing fancy but it sews straight! Cheesy

Ive had only a wonderful experience buying a Janome 4052 through Sears. You' re not going to find a Janome there for under $200. I love the machine. Once you get the hang of it's really easy to use and it has tons of stitches. The owners manual is kinda a pain in the butt to understand though.

thanks for the info. I've been thinking about heading out to sears to check out their janomes. does your machine have a drop-in bobbin? were you able to try out the machines in the store? were the salespeople knowledgeable? for some reason I imagine that the people there wouldn't have a clue about the sewing machines.

It does have a drop in bobbin. The sales people were not much help at all. I really wasn't expecting them to be. Ive figuered the machine out for myself.  My experience with sears was good because i didn't run into any real problems.  Good luck with finding a machine for yourself Wink. Id like other peep's to share what they think of Jemone machines as a brand.
