    My dad tried to start a sewing thingy a few years back and he bought this machine and he sewed like he knew what he was doing, Well when I tried it I could not make it sew. 10 or so years later i dug it out of my shed, well it froze all up, took it apart cleaned it and got it running but could not make it sew.... ten hours later much research online who would have known, the thread goes in right to left not left to right.

    Rosa is her name
