hi everybody! i recently acquired my very first sewing machine, and i'm quite excited! it's a hand-me-down from my stepmother-in-law, and it's a white deluxe brand machine, model #1505. it's an older machine, but i still think it's quite nice. all i have is the machine, the power cord, and the pedal-- that's it. no manual or accessories... but apparently the machine can do a "zigzag" stitch, which was a big selling point when my stepmother-in-law purchased it.
i can't wait to start sewing, but i'm not quite sure where to begin. would you lovely folks be able to offer me advice on good learn-to-sew websites or books? what sorts of parts and accessories do i need to get started, aside from the obvious thread and fabric? is "white" a good brand of sewing machines?
thank you in advance for your help, and i look forward to learning from you all!
