Few years ago, I was checking TESDA site to see if they offer sewing class and if they have branch near our place. But I could not find anything or I just don’t know how. Lol
Last Christmas, my husband gifted me a Brother GS2700 sewing machine. (P12,995 + P1500 Jollibee Gift Certificate) Whoa! I have zero sewing machine skills and I don’t even know how to put a thread in the needle. As in, I have zero knowledge in operating sewing machine. I wanted to learn how to sew but I was not expecting that I will have sewing machine first without attending any sewing class. We don’t have sewing class in school, all I can remember is we had a sewing project in Home Economics that we need to submit.
Back to the sewing machine, since I don’t know how to operate it, my husband set it up for me because the staff in Automatic Center had no idea too. He need to try it for warranty. Napaandar naman niya.
Brother GS2700 Features:
• LED Light
• Automatic needle threader
• Automatic one step button hole
• Quick Set bobbin
• Stitch length/width adjustment
• Instructional DVD included
Two days after Christmas,
Hubby: “Hon, gamitin mo naman gift ko”
Me: Agad-agad, di nga ko marunong
Hmmm, sayang naman ang sewing machine and pati frabric meron na rin so after our breakfast, I checked my Pinterest Sewing Board. O di ba, I have sewing board talaga kahit wala ko alam. I looked for easy sewing projects that I could try. I printed a Pajama pattern and connect everything but I have to stop because we’re going to Night Sky Cinema.
The following day, I started reading the manual so I will have an idea on how to operate the machine. I need to learn how to prepare the bobbin thread, upper threading and the different stitches. I was forced to learn this skill. Lol My first project was DIY pajama and I did it.

Good thing there was DVD tutorial too so at least I have basic knowledge on how to operate it. There are sample projects in their DVD which is tote bag and drawstring pouch that I can try.
