Adventures With A Sewing Machine, Part One

Well, my first attempt to use my lovely new sewing machine at home was not as easy as I thought it would be! I was shown how to do the basics before I left the shop and it seemed pretty simple...

Then I tried it at home.

The first thing I attempted to do was to thread the bobbin. The machine has instructions ON IT, as well as with it, and yet could I remember or find out what to do? No.

The second attempt worked though, with a helping hand from my boyfriend who seems to magically know all about sewing machines!

I managed to thread the bobbin and thread the needle and actually try out a few of the basic stitches. I already feel more comfortable with the machine: at first I was afraid that I was going to break something.

On Monday, I have my first free hour long tuition at the shop where I bought my machine: I'm excited to learn more!
