So DH bought me a new Singer (electronic) for our anniversary. I think something is wrong with it though. It doesn't want to sew a straight stitch, I thought maybe it was me, but I just tried to topstitch a strap, and it's all wonky.

When I say it won't sew straight, I mean that I run the stitch and then when I look at it, it's all wobbly, very noticably, but not consistantly like a zig zag.

It has Auto tension and is well oiled. I'm just not sure what is wrong with it or if it really is me doing something wrong. I even switched to metal bobbins, and that didn't help.
