No but I'm keeping an eye on this post.  I want to get a sewing machine but there are so many options.  I look and get overwhelmed and give up.

 That would help make the decision!  LoL  My mom once gave me one from a friends of hers but it was old and had no instructions and I got frustrated and sold it!

Oh man. This one didn't have a manual either but she gave me the website where I can get it. I'm terrible at sewing but would love to learn to make dd clothes

YouTube has some good clips. Also just google it. I follow a pattern for clothes that I get from the fabric store. On pintrest you might be able to find some free patterns too.

I just decided that I'm going to learn to knit and used YouTube, google and pintrest.
