I have a great Talent! --

I picked up my sewing machine yesterday and unboxed it --

The wonderful people at Monteverde (Singer Philippines) did a test run to make sure the machine was working --

I spent the rest of the afternoon and evening reading the manual.

This morning, after breakfast, I:
- learned how to wind a bobbin
- learned how to thread the needle -- my machine can do auto needle threading but I wanted to see if I could do it by myself
- played with some stitches

Our driver helped me out.  (His mom used to sew for a living before she retired.)

Later today, I plan to explore stitch length and width --

... and also learn how to sew straight.

The Singer Talent 3323s (<-- that's the machine's name, hence the title of this blog entry) is a great machine -- I'm a complete beginner but it didn't intimidate or overwhelm me -- the pedal is soft and very responsive.  I think this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship!
