WHY DID I CHOOSE THIS MACHINE?
I chose the Singer MX60 sewing machine because of its simplicity and ease of use. I have used much fancier sewing machines, but found that you need to take a class just to be able to use them. Also, I seldom need all of the fancy things those sewing machines do. Today many of the machines are basically computers. But I wanted a machine that I could sit down and use to sew!
SETTING UP THE MACHINE
Setting up the machine was easy. The handle on top makes it portable and all you have to do is plug it in and you are good to go. To thread the needle I glanced at the online manual, but the machine has a threading guide printed right on the machine, so if you do not have access to the manual all you have to do is to look at the top of the machine. I was able to get it threaded with little difficulty.
THE NEEDLE IS THREADED, NOW WHAT?
Once I had the needle threaded I took a scrap piece of fabric and tested the stitches and needle tensions. I recommend doing this before starting a project. It would also be useful to write down what settings you use with different fabric.
