hi all!
i just got my new (and first) sewing machine today, so yay!
nothing spectacular about it, just does a simple straight stitch, but something's better than nothing!
had a little trouble with making it work at first but now it seems ok.
anyone knows anything good/bad about it? please tell me!
thanks!

Is it one of those little small ones that dont have a bobbin or they use a bobbin as a spool of thread? I have one o those and it confused me, i have no idea how to get it to work. The stitches were just pulling out, but i think there is some horrible knot you have to do.

i just checked out ur machine.. to me it looks pretty good for some reason i thought it was one of those little hand held things..here is the link to a consumer report on them out of seattle.. i think for a first machine it's not too bad ..

thanks for the link scream.

it has a bobbin (i hope i know what i 'm talking about) once i thread the machine i have to turn the handwheel a couple of times to get the knot, not too difficult
initially the threading was all messed up at the bottom of the fabric... but then thanks to craftster (he hehe) i realised that it was cos of the threading, so i fiddled around some more. it's pretty ok now (i guess) but i need to learn how to guide fabric in a straight line hahaha!

yeah not too bad for a first machine! will i ever graduate to a better model? hee hee
