are you embarrassed because you got a Sewing machine for Christmas or you bought one yourself you haven't taken out of the box yet it's still in the closet why I'm here to help you welcome to the Sewing Report i'm your host jennifer moore helping you discover your love of sewing and of course sewing machines if that's something that interests you feel free to hit that subscribe button and we are talking about how to get a little mushy out-of-the-box what do you do first I was actually in your shoes about three years ago I got a vintage machine i was a disaster i didn't know what the heck I was doing so I'm going to try to make a video to show you what you need to do like the very basic stuff you need to do to get this thing working now this video is not going to teach you how to be an expert seamstress but this video will hopefully show you how to go from box to basic stitching so let's get started ok so the first thing you need to do is open the box just get out the sewing
01:03
machine and just cut open that box take everything out and you should actually see a set up similar to this if you have a different brand of sewing machine the sewing machine i'm going to be demonstrating on today is the EverSewn sparrow 25 it's a great line of entry-level sewing machines it's got a lot of features quite a bit of bang for the buck and I've really been enjoying this particular model so it's available on Amazon you can get a prime CA get it like two or three days and then you're ready to go I've actually been using this one and if you know anything about sewing machines already this machine was actually developed by the makers of bernina yes like the rolls-royce of sewing machines so the reason I wanted to show you this machine is because it's got some very fine craftsmanship a metal body and it's great it's great for beginners but the best of all it's got a price that won't break the bank this model is only about three hundred and twenty-nine dollars at the time of this video course that may change
02:05
amazon has changed all the time so make sure to check before you buy once you get everything out of the box you should see something like this and let me explain what all of this is I'm gonna try to do some pretty down-to-earth terms very basic stuff just so if this is your first time doing anything so unrelated you don't feel lost so this of course is the instruction manual right here i would advise reading it I think this one is actually pretty helpful it even goes into some more advanced stuff like how to do certain stitches and also how to adjust your tension how to use all the feet what they're all for that sort of thing so i would definitely actually recommend reading the instruction manual i know some people don't like to read instructions and that's probably why you're watching this video but it will come in handy at some point or at least as a reference guide so obviously you'll get the sewing machine and it should actually have a foot attached and a needle that's already there because this one definitely did so you'll get the basic sewing machine you should get this
03:07
foot pedal here and on this machine you can actually control the 15 either by the foot pedal or there's also a start/stop button on the front you also get a power cord like any modern electronic itself on your laptop you will get a power cord differently accessory bag you'll also get with every phone service 25 you'll get a couple of the thread spools which is a nice addition the first thing you're going to need to do is plug in the machine so there are the plug on the side here you'll notice that your power cord has a rounded side and then one with the flat edge the flat and obviously you want to mask this up to to the slot here and then you'll want to match up the foot pedal okay with this other spot
04:08
right here that's for the foot LOL ok so we've got the power cord here power cord here and then the foot pedal and then actually you're off and on switch the first backtrack to plug in the machine should be good idea right go ahead and plug this in and lucky for me I've gotta plug right behind me and obviously you can get an extension cord but it definitely make sure to plug it in and then you can actually turn this off an on switch and the sewing machine should come to life right your sewing machine is going to come to life right here so the foot pedal and physically obviously this mission would be facing me but for the purposes of this video I'm going to have to do this sort of backwards so just for demonstration purposes I will operate the foot pedal on the table
05:10
I don't do that a lot Bukka we're going to be doing in here need another drink of water in your manual it will actually have a list of the parts of the machine and pointing it out just so that you can get a feel for what is what on this thing if you have no idea so go over some of these things with you ok so right up here obviously this is this this is the off switch over here you also have a bunch of buttons on the front and now again by the time you get to the end of this video you won't be an expert on this machine i just want to show you enough where you're not totally freaked out by this and where you can actually just get it to work because that's really the end goal for today if you liked this video and there's enough demand i make more with some advanced more advanced going over of this machine so we will see so up here this is so every machine coming up looks similar they have some
06:10
differences but they all have the same main parts like this up here this is for your thread full you also typically have this bobbin winder assembly on the top this is for your threading and then these buttons on the front this one to the left of your reverse stitching this is a lock stitch this is needle up and down and this is actually yeah how fast your machine will go and this is BS dark stop button so if you don't want to use the foot pedal you can actually hit this and also so let's go for some of the parts if you've never used the sewing machine before i would highly recommend just at least flipping through this just to get familiar with the Machine and all the parts because there's a lot of them so what you're going to need to do first let's open up the little bag here and
07:17
this model actually comes with a pack of meals which is awesome now and more needles okay lots of needles in here and the foot that actually comes on this show with this model here there are actually several different types of feet on different makes so this this model has a snap-on feet so there's a little button in the back and you push it to actually show you here if you push this button on the back here the foot will come off this is going to be your basic all-purpose but this is foot t i'm not going to show you the other one's right now we're just going to stick with key because this is the again this is a very basic tutorial and we don't want to get too into the weeds today so we're going to take the foot off and this one
08:19
yes so to get the foot back off all you have to do is put it under this little groove right here this little button here this is actually your pressure foot lifter so you lift it up and down and you're actually going to push it down on to the foot in a little snap in place like that this here is your bobbin case and this is a top-loading bobbin there's also front-loading bobbins but this one is from top and all you can do to get those open is hit this little lever right here and it'll pop out and check this out and this little plastic fully thing is actually your bobbin each sewing machine manufacturers typically has a different kind of bobbin to make sure you are buying bobbin specific to your machine type if you try to mix and match it might not work out so well so i'm actually going to show you how to win your bobbin and in this machine you have
09:20
a little slot here for accessories got some things in here and then if you pull this out you've got a free arm so you may wonder why did why does this come up i had no idea when I started the reason why having a free are mr. beneficial is mostly when you're sewing garments or anything where you need to fit like a sleepover this thing or something smaller maybe like a pant leg or something like that so this is good in instances where you have like a round opening or if you're sewing bag and you fit it over here so this slides on and off and when you don't need it just stay down here we go and the nice thing about this machine is it does have a handle so you can pick it up and carry it it is a bit having i'm not sure exactly
10:22
how much it weighs but it's not something it's not something like a three-year-old could easily pick up so now we have a sewing machine on and i'm actually going to show you how to change a meal so there's a little metal rod here and this is what will release the needle remember lefty-loosey righty-tighty i'm actually going to throw out this middle because it is a little bit bad and it has been skipping some stitches so we're going to throw it away and i'm actually going to use one of these needles that came in this little pack so one thing to know about needles is that you do need to match your needle size to thread you're using and with me two packs you can see on this one it's got numbers on it and the higher the number so it's like a 70 needle it's smaller than say a hundred a 100 deal so the higher the number of the
11:23
needle the bigger the is and the bigger Fred you can use it and with thread the lower the number the thicker it is so a 60 weight thread is much thinner than a 12 wait thread so just keep that in mind and i'll try to include some resources down below so if you're still confused you don't know what any of that is i'm going to try to help you because when i first started I had no idea you were supposed to match your thread to your needles and I got a lot of thread breakage and some instances where the thread would actually just get stripped from the needle because the fred was too large for the ipad needle so in this case we're actually going to use the we're going to use the 80 the size 18 needle on the ever some spare 25 the flat side of the needle assistant facing to the back so there's a little hole you need to get the needle in and it's right by here and you just need to push up the needle as far as it can
12:25
go and then tighten this little here make sure you put the meat open stories that can go and then you've got your needle needle in to wind the bobbin we're going to use the one of the oldest friend that came with the machine this is metal or thread in black and we're going to find the end of the thread i got the pale of the thread here and we're going to put it on the school pin this is a horizontal spool pin and in your little accessory bag this machine also came with a vertical spool pin so this would be used if you're using a twin needle or if you wanted to wind the bobbin but not disrupt your
13:27
already threaded school here you can use to you can use what this one and you can use this one and to help me with this actually this little haiti pair of snips that i will be using direct the video so now I've got my bobbin and i'm actually going to put this up top but first i'm going to take my thread and put it on the spool pin and typically i like my thread to go towards the back so as its unwinding you should see it like this so i always have for some reason I always just have it to you in the back I don't know if that's the right way or the wrong way but it's the way I do it here's how you thread the bobbin first take the threat and put it through this little guide here okay and then this is the bobbin tension right here right here is the bobbin tension and you want to
14:28
watch this around to wrap it around clockwise and you will get this point now you're going to take your bobbin and there is a little hole there's a little hole at the top of it from the inside out you're going to run your thread through here now I've got my shred through the bobbin and i'm just going to snap the bobbin onto this metal piece here now we've got that done and you're going to hold hold your bobbin thread just keep holding it with one hand and then with the other hand you're actually going to push it to the right by pushing it to the right that tells machine that you're winding the bobbin so now all you have to do we take your foot pedal here or your start/stop button and just push down and your body will start to life and you want to hold onto the thread for the first few revolutions until you know
15:30
that it won't come unraveled and then I'm actually just going to snip off the end of this because you don't mean it so yeah just keep winding your bobbin as long as you want at some point we'll get full i'm not going to win two full bobbin just for purposes of this demonstration we're going to keep it like this so now just pick your hips or scissors and cut the thread and then push this back up and pull it out so next I'm going to show you what to do with your bobbin case I've already got my bobbin case that cover taking off and you actually want your bobbin thread to be facing this direction so wrapping it around it's actually going to wrap around counterclockwise and you're going
16:31
to just place this in the bobbin case and then you'll see some corresponding arrows to how you need to run the thread you're actually going to there's a little there's a little plastic hook here and you're going to run this through this little group here and then up and you'll see another group cop here they're all black and then you'll run the thread down to the flu grooves here and then through this last group of the front and then snap off the rest of your Fred so now you're just going to take this piece and snap it back in place ok so slide defense and there you go so
17:34
well done and if you want to get this out again just pop this button here here's how you thread the needle you're going to take the thread off the bobbin tension but you're going to keep it in this little guy here they're also going to run it through this guide at the back of the Machine and also through this little groove right here alright you're going to run it up through this little raspberry colored part and up and behind this other thread guide now that we've got the thread through these guys there's also two more there's this metal guide and then there's another metal guide right above the needle you're going to need to get your thread to both of these ok sorry I'm going to do in this backwards and some hard to see this when I find were excessive beautiful if I hold my finger over to the left
18:36
pull my thread to the right and then get it around here alright so now we've got our thread through all the guides and now there's threading the needle and this machine has an automatic threader so I cranking the handwheel I want to make sure my needle is at the highest point it can be like you don't want to get out here you want it to be as high as you can possibly get it then this right here is your needle threader okay you just pull this down you just pull this all the way down put your thread through here in game threw here and then pull it through there you'll see pure groove you'll see that group you want your thread in between the
19:36
grooves like this and then pull up sorry you can't see all right and then when you really so ever see there the loop of thread here actually going to put my needle prefer down you should see a little loop in the back and just pull pull this back and then your needle will be threaded before you start sewing it's helpful to pull your bobbin thread up to avoid the whole rat's nest thing what you're going to want to do is put your presser foot down and rotate the hand wheel might take one or two times then lift the presser foot back up and this is where these snakes will come in handy pull your thread and you should get a bobbin thread with it actually think I see it ok the bottom thread came up with it it's kinda short i'm just going to
20:37
pull it so now you've got both of your threads up top and you'll see the bob and start to spin so that's a good sign and I like to pull out my thread a little bit to leave this tale and then pull it to the back so now you're actually ready to start sewing actually going to take this piece of scrap fabric i like to keep random scraps just to test out stitches and before I actually so the real item i always do a practice crap just make sure the stitches are what I want this right here is your tension dial it's white and by default it's set on for the higher the number the more tension of your top thread so if you find that you have not you see knots up top you typically want to lower that number and if you've seen that they're not from the bottom you want to dial it up to the higher the number the more tension on the top thread so I'm actually just going to take the scrap fabric and place it under the presser
21:37
foot lower your presser foot and then these buttons right here are actually how wide the stitch you or how long the stitch will be so that's your stitch length so the shorter the number by default it's set at I think too but the higher the number the longer decision vs believe this machine goes up to 5 which is typically considered a basting stitch but the lower the number the kind of your the fishes will be so I'm going to leave it on the default of two and I'm actually just going to hold my threads and back and then I'll just use this presser foot to get started and we'll see where we end up ok and to get your peace out just lift the presser foot and then start pull and you'll see a thread tail in the back and that's okay i'm just going to snip this off I'm checking out my sample here and
22:48
I purposely used the contrasting thread just so you can see and I think the stitching looks pretty decent so I want to leave the settings as is and that is how you go from having a sewing machine in the box to actually sewing so hopefully you found this video helpful give me a like if you did and comment below if you like me to make similar videos in the future I'm getting more with designer board oh you get a power cord and this should come with a dress that's actually the foot pedal while i'm an idiot okay 16 once you get everything once you get it
