I'm BRAND new at sewing with a sewing machine. In fact, this old Singer sewing machine is my first one ever and I'm dying to learn how. Can anyone give me a tutorial on how to use it? I'm dying to craft things for baby before he gets here in November. :) Thanks in advance!

if you can google the model & make and see whether you can find the manual.  that's a great place to start!  (or if you have the one that came with it...)


Is it getting lonely in the echo chamber yet?

Did you check Singer's website?  They have free pdfs of the manuals: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals

what i saw at that website is that singer has spiral bound manuals they will sell you.

 

you should get your manual as soon as you can.  i took some pictures to see if i could help you to get started in the meantime, mama.

No, there are links to free ones, just enter the model number.  I've used the site to download pdfs of manuals.
