The foot pedal comes with the machine.

P.S. Read the manual carefully for instructions on threading the tensor to sew, it is not threaded through the tensor knob on top for stitching like you would expect, it has separate hidden tensor plate under a rectangular piece of plastic below the knob that you use when stitching.

Question

bobbin winder will not release to wind bobbin singer model 2263

when I move bobbin winder into position to wind bobbin, the machine goes into a bind. when I move the bobbin wider back to the sew position the machine works fine, but I cannot wind a bobbin. something is catching when I put the bobbin winder in the wind position, that will not let the machine wind the bobbin. What can I do?

When you are going to wind the bobbin on the SINGER 2263, you need to make sure of 2 things:
1) The needle is in the highest position.
2) When you slide the the bobbin pin to the right, you need to be sure it 'snaps' all the way over into place to fully activate the bobbin winder.
If this does not help, please contact SINGER's Customer Support department at 800-474-6437 M-F from 8:30 - 4:00 CST or you can contact them at talktous@singerco.com. There is also a helpful list of FAQs that may be helpful when you run into a problem while working with your machine at http://www.singerco.com/support/frequently-asked-questions

The power cord and foot control are attached with the link/plug into the machine in the center.
Usually these are in a bag that is placed in the center of the machine for shipping. Sometimes they are placed on the outside of the styro packing material (and usually falls to the side when you pull the machne from the box).
If your machine did not come with a power cord you can contact Walmart for a replacement.

The Singer Simple has a foot control that allows you control over the speed of your sewing. The more pressure applied to the foot contorl the faster your machine will sew.
Some machines also have a slide control that allows you to really slow down or speed up the sewing machine. This machine does not have that feature.

How thick can this machine sew through? For instance if I was buying a gift for someone who sewed a lot of quilted or felted items would it power thru

The machine can sew through pretty thick fabrics but you'll need to buy a special sewing machine needle for that type of fabric. For example when I'm altering jeans I have a Singer sewing machine needle specially for Denim. But quilted and felted items sew fine with the regular general purpose needle without any problems. I've done it before.

Check to make sure all the parts connected to and around the bobbin are in place properly. Also, when you take that section apart, make sure there are no loose threads stuck anywhere in that area! Both of these things can cause an issue.... oh, and ensure that you only stitch with the foot in the "down" position. For thicker fabrics, purchase the walking foot separately.
