The Singer heavy duty sewing machine is a basic machine with 32 built in stitches. It is easy to thread, and easy to use.
Important tips: Go slow, and practice on a piece of scrap fabric first. If you’re unsure of the tension and stitch settings you need to use, practice on a piece of scrap fabric, or ask a makerspace staff person for help.
Threading the machine is simple. Run the thread through the numbered slots in order. You may need to turn the wheel on the right side of the machine to lift threading position number five into view.
