A New Sewing Machine - Helena's Infinite Shades of Life

A New Sewing Machine and A LOT to learn


Showing off and getting acquainted with the SINGER 2282 TRADITION™ in my new video ‘An ALMOST unboxing

Sewing machine

This post and the video that comes with it is a little bit different from the usual. I am setting up and showing off my brand new sewing machine, which I received as a Christmas present from my mother and my husband last year (2019).

I had a lot of fun setting it up, trying it out and in general getting acquainted with it. You will hear awkward blabbering and see me fail as I am trying to figure out the different functions.

It’s such a pretty machine.

It comes with 32 stitches plus, of course, a button hole stitch. The machine has an automatic threading option, but I haven’t really tried it out yet. Honestly I am a bit fuzzy on the instructions with that one.

Since recording this video, I have, however, managed to already use it quite a bit for samples of my next project. I am hoping to share the progress of the Sweet Cherry Pie Coat with you soon.

For now, I hope you will enjoy watching this sewing machine experience.



Yay! I gotta say, I love my new sewing machine.  (。♥‿♥。) I hope it showed.

You can comment down below and let me know how many mistakes I made or what I might’ve done well (for a total sewing machine newbie, that is). Or, how about letting me know a little bit about your first experiences with your first machines!?

You should also consider following this blog or subscribing to my YouTube channel (or both), if you want to see how my next projects turn out.

And please give me a Thumbs Up, if you liked this video and would like to see more!
