Hi Jappa! This is Katie B. from SINGER Sewing Company. The 2263 sewing machine does not come with a hard case. Walmart does sell a hard case that will fit this machine. It is listed on this website as well.

Happy Sewing!

Question

Can you shorten pants with this?

I spend $12 to have pants shortened for someone. This machine is so inexpensive I could have bought 4 over the years. This is the second time my attention has been brought to it while surfing the net so it must be good! If it does shorten pants is that something that would be in a manual that comes with the machine? Just a guy trying to save some money!

Good For You, I admire a guy willing to sew! The manuel is good/easy to read. Use your common sense and copy the way all your pants hems look. You can remove the storage box to make an arm that works for the pantbottom.

You can't. And the zipperfoot pops off. Forget it.

If you continue to push the presser foot lever up, you will get an extra 1/4" of space between the foot and the plate. This should be plenty of room for heavy fabric.

can it do overlocking stiches?

you can reduce fraying and get a nice, overlock-look edge by using a wide zigzag stitch with a overlock presser foot. You can purchase one from Amazon - brand Distinctive. They have several feet that work with this machine (and any other simple snap in shank styles) Walking foot, ruffler, etc. I still wouldn't recommend this machine overall, though.

The 2263 does include an overedge stitch. However, only sergers can perform overlocking stitches.

Open up your bobin area. Remove the bobin. Remove any thread stuck in there. Re-attach your bobin and re-thread your machine as nedded. That should clear up your jam. Repeat as necessary.

answer 2
Please make sure your presser foot is lowered before you start sewing. Sewing with the presser foot raised will cause your bobbin thread to tangle.

Also, be sure to have your bobbin inserted correctly into the bobbin case. Full instructions on this process can be found on page 13 of your instruction manual.

This machine has no problem sewing over thick fabric and even faux fur, but once the timing was off it was all over. I would spend a little more and get a nicer machine. This one isn't very reliable.

Oh, yes, you shouldn't have any trouble with your project there with this great machine! I repair my husband's blue jeans with it.
The stretch stitch will allow you to make strong hems.

I would not recommend it, the Singer Simple has a PLASTIC casing and would not do well flipping it up and down. Mine has held up to some abuse but I think this would damage the machine in time.
