Someone asked about getting good tensions and really, I think most of our sewing machine troubles come from tensions being unbalanced.
They don't teach sewing in most schools nowadays, and a lot of young women aren't lucky enough to have grandparents to teach them like I did, so maybe I can stand in momentarily and be a gramma for someone learning to sew.
Without balanced tensions, your sewing machine may not sew a nice-looking, strong and reliable seam.
