Today I looked the monster right in the eyes. I faced my fears head on with the
SLANT-O-MATIC singer sewing machine.
Plugged in but where is the foot pedal?!?!?! Then I spy the pedal you press with your knee.
Hmmmmmm try as I may the machine wouldn’t work. Where is the switch to turn it on?!?!?
Aha! There’s another plug but where does it go?!?!?!? Finally I found it under the monster.
There is no on/off switch but when you plug in this plug the machine has POWER!!!!!!
Facing my fears…breathe deep….knobs, diagrams, breathe deep….facing my fears….
What do you do with all this metal stuff?!?!?! And the circle thingys and plate thingys?!?!?!?
It’s time to call in the pro.
Granny is a seamstress by trade. She can figure out most any machine. She fixed the presser foot, threaded the machine, filled the bobbin, and poked and prodded at this and that and within an hour we had the straight stitch and zigzag stitch figured out.
I wrote out straight stitch and zigzag instructions and thanked Granny and started taming the monster. Pillow cases were sewn into bed pockets for the ladies at Morning Pointe and then I just practiced taming the monster with some scraps and made this little house and inchie heart.
It was sew much fun!
