Nice! Last time I tried a sewing machine I lost control for a split second, and voila: A chunk of fabric and thread.

I see myself as a diplomat. Got a problem with that, asshole? Huh??

I can imagine, I have to sew super slow to make anything good.

I've never seen a sewing machine except in a museum. They were those old machines that you had to use your feet to make them run.

Were you adjusting the stitch length in the middle? If not, then try to be mindful of how much tension you're keeping on the fabric as it runs under the presser-foot. The stitch length in the middle of your fabric is a little shorter than at the ends. Sometimes this means that the machine isn't running right or that it doesn't want to feed your fabric. This is common with very heavy fabrics but also very light synthetic fabrics. If that's not the case (I suspect it isn't), then you may have been pulling on the fabric for a second or two in the middle.

Sewing machines aren't hard to use, but they do require practice. And every machine I've ever tried has been different. My advice is to practice sewing straight and curved lines on old bed sheets or pillowcases. Mark a line, then try to sew exactly on top of it. Try straight lines and curves. When you have the hang of that, cut a few patterns out of old sheets and try sewing them. Don't start with expensive fabric. It's not worth it. Practice first!
