What are you afraid of? Well its just like the first time you picked up a sewing needle except this one has voltage power, and empowers you to do more. I dont know who said it but I like repeating it( it was one of those presidents) We have nothing to fear but fear itself!
Now get away from the computer and go plug her in, turn the light on.....aw now aint she purdy....you dont even need to thread it. Just push on the peddle a little to get the feel for it.....See you can do this!
Looking forward to seeing what you make!
