Even though I am frustrated and very confounded, I step out on a needle and thread journey. That's right, I am teaching myself how to sew on my hand-me-down Simplicity Sewing Machine.
Pulled out the machine, cut some fabric, placed fabric on the machine and pressed the pedal. Oh. Stuck thread! Decided to re-thread the upper and lower. Unfortunately that did not work either. An hour reading the manual, trying different settings, seeking troubleshooting advice online and STILL COULD NOT FIGURE IT OUT!
I even watched this animated gif in hopes to grasp the concept.
Hopefully day number two will be a day I have patience and understanding for this complicated device. Simply put, I WILL NOT BE STUMPED!
