Yes, but you will have to feed the material through the stitch because the feed wont do it. If you do not feed it through your self it will jam up.

The manual, in box, is not big and perhaps you overlooked it when you unpacked item? If not......I would call store you bought it from and have them order missing manual. Hopefully your machine came with DVD........I use that more than manual....too many foreign language pages to thumb through to get to good old English!

Can I ruffle with this machine, by using a large stitich and moving the tension to a higher setting?

I made a ruffle for a hat today using the largest stitch. I didn't bother to change the tension - I did two rows of machine basting stitches 1/4" apart and pulled the needle thread to ruffle. There isn't an included ruffle attachment but you can probably buy one.

You won't even need to move the tension, just use a long stitch, then pull your thread to gather. The machine will not self gather however.

I haven't tried it on this one, but my old basic Singer would handle lighter weight vinyl with a heavy duty needle. Just go slow, at least to begin with, so you don't break the needle. Good luck!

Question

Does it sew vertical? or just side to side as it says for horizontal?

It says it sews horizontal. Up and Down is vertical. This will be my first sewing machine. i did it in school years ago but i remember how to do it. will this be right for me?

There are two planes when considering a sewing machine. Horizontal is what this sewing machine will sew. Meaning the fabric lies flat on the table/sewing machine base and the machine will sew in a line or zigzag but on a flat plane. Vertical would be as if you were trying to sew drapries while they were hanging on a window. Some machines are light enough that you can hold them to do that - although for the life of me I can't figure out a time when that would be practical. But even so, the stitches would be horizontal to the fabric, not vertical. Anyway - this machine sew flat on a table, not ceiling to floor. The machine pulls the fabric from the front of the machine to the back of the machine OR if in reverse, back to front. This is your basic, everyday sewing machine and should be perfect for a beginner to an expert depending upon desire.

It has a zig-zag stitch that can be adjusted for length of stitch and width of stitch. It also has a stitch that is good for stretch material.

When we were in Germany, we used a transformer to change the power to 220.
I would think with this sewing machine you can do the same as long as the wattage is supported. There are probably many different adapters. I have seen some for hair dryers. Good Luck.

You should purchase a set of electrical converters. This product can be bought in a set so you have a converter which can be used with any power supply.

Not sure but if I encountered this, I would think I threaded the upper thread incorrectly.....and would rethread. Then if it continued, I would check my bobbin.....to me it sounds like upper threading incorrectly. Hope someone else knows more than me right now.
