I just got my first sewing machine and read the manual and bought a book on it. I didnt realize how to keep the stitch from un-doing until I saw your video and you explained how to back stitch on each end! Great video! Thank you!

Omg I am a bran new to sewing and I literally just spent 2 solid days trying to figure out why the thread kept "bird nesting" under my fabric. I must have watched 20 how to videos with no luck. Then I come across your video and you said 5 little words that made me want to kick myself in the head!! Put the pressure foot down. This whole time I'm re threading my machine cleaning the dust out blah blah blah I went threw a whole spool and bam!!! All I needed to do this whole time was put the pressure foot down. Smh all I can say is you're an angel ??. Thank you.

Hia, Just started cutting off a Patten that I used before and my corners do not look right plz help.
