I grew tired of hemming my sweatpants by hand so I decided to purchase the Singer Electronic Sewing Machine Pixie-Plus. I didn't know too much about sewing machines at the time, but I knew enough to understand that the manual was useless. It didn't explain clearly how to install the bobbin and it took me about 45 minutes just playing around with it to get it in correctly. Once I had the bobbin in place and the needle threaded the pedal wouldn't work. After trying to get the pedal to work for several minutes it mysteriously started to work after making no changes. I was able to hem one pant leg and it came out great. When I started on the second leg the machine started to jam and the thread would bunch up. I couldn't figure out what was going wrong so I removed everything and put it back together. Once reassembled everything started to work again and I was able to hem my second pant leg. The next time I wanted to hem a pair of pants the sewing machine wouldn't turn on. I tried different outlets and it still didn't power on. I decided to return the Singer Electronic Sewing Machine Pixie-Plus because it was too much trouble to operate.
