I took the first steps towards learning to sew yesterday. I cleaned out my grandmother's old sewing table, which was quite an undertaking. I also practiced sewing on some el cheapo fabric from JoAnn. For some reason the backstitches with this machine are really loose. I need to play around with it some more to see if I can fix that somehow. It may be due to the fact that the machine is over 40 years old. I may have to get a budget machine if this one won't backstitch. :( I want this one to work because it's so cool looking!
