Crafts-mas has come early this year thanks to our wonderful friends at Singer! I showed up this morning to discover 5 boxes full of sewing machines just sitting there, waiting to be unpacked. I didn't know what to do! I've never unpacked 5 sewing machines before. So, I immediately set forth to figure it out. And, of course, I documented the process in true Instructables fashion. Follows is how to unpack 5 very different and awesome Singer sewing machines.

Step 1: Make a Singer sewing machine pyramid

Before you can unpack the boxes, you first have to make a sewing machine pyramid. This is not really part of the unpacking process, but when is the next time you will have the chance to make a sewing machine pyramid? I mean, c'mon, really! This had to be done before any of the real work could start.

Sometimes you just have to ask yourself, 'What would Martha do?'

Step 2: Start at the beginning

I find it best to start at the beginning. So, with this in mind I started unpacking "The Professional" first. The reason for this, for those of you who are not constantly reminded by me on a daily basis, is obvious, I am a Professional. It is only fitting that a Professional should start off this undertaking by unpacking "The Professional."

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

Unpack all of the cool stuff from the box. Admire it. Look at it. Cherish it. Smile.

And then violently "dispose of" the packaging out of the way. You have more important things to worry about.

I wonder if my niece is a competing overlord...  She's cute enough for sure!

PS that's my brother, not me. He kept saying, you know you want one... He's a henchman for sure!
Mind control.  That's how you can positively identify evil infant overlords.
I'll have to check the basement for a brainwashing machine. <.<    >.>
XD you are hilarious.

But I have a few questions/comments on the background. To wit:

What's the rainbow thing?

There are TWO robots?!

Why do you have a discolored area of brick marked as the exit? That must be funny when you have visitors.

And OMG I SEE MY HAND ON THAT SHELF OVER THERE yay. :D

The rainbow thing is a curtain, parachute and giant clown costume all in one.

Yes. There are many robots. According to Rachel, the robot's name is Gumdrop and that is "Gumdrop 12" and "Gumdrop 49" (don't tell anyone as this may not be true).

That was from the last visit of the Kool Aid Man. He just can't help it. He came to visit from Miami. The robot is a distant cousin.


Wow, you certainly do utilize things efficiently at HQ!

:O Robot has a name?! All I've ever known is a lie...

Ahhh, that explains Robot's, er, rotundity.

It was a surprise to me to. I'm not sure that is really robots name, but Rachel seems to think it is.
So we should or shouldn't be calling the robot "Gumdrop"?

I'm not sure!

I think that's his code name.
Well, in the mean time I will still call him The Honourable Instructables Robot.
We could have a naming competition!
Robots? I see none.

And cool hand!
Step 5.

Thanks! :D
*doh*

Blind much, now I see.
