Did I purchased the right machine?
Hi all! I am new gatherings. I am graduate student in Iowa and just bought myself my first sewing machine as a present to myself for christmas. I bought a Singer 2662. I made a few simple curtains for my living room but halfway though the project my machine started malfunctioning. The material started to pucker and the stitch looked like the top tension was too tight. I tried adjusting (both tighter and looser) and that didn’t seem to help. I double checked my threading (made sure the bobbin was threaded correctly as well). I also changed the needle and even took the bobbin plate off to make sure there wasn’t a bunch of lint in the machine. The feed dog seems to be working alright. I am just at my whits end. I can’t seem to get it to function properly. I don’t know if it is just a defective machine. Maybe this wasn’t the best machine to buy. I spent about $200 on it and that is about all I can afford. I have only had it two weeks so I can still return it. I would be very greatful for any advise on what might be going wrong or a recomendation for a better machine. Thank you very much for you help.
