Step 1: Make a Singer sewing machine pyramid
Sometimes you just have to ask yourself, 'What would Martha do?'
Step 2: Start at the beginning
Brake the seal and follow all of the directions on the box. This box directed me to avoid stepping upon the sewing machine, get an umbrella and a glass of wine. The first two were no problem, but I found it a little too early in the morning for wine. Instead, I substituted the wine for a glass of water from the tap. I then resumed my work.
Step 3: Unpack all the cool stuff
And then violently "dispose of" the packaging out of the way. You have more important things to worry about.
