So I've bought a sewing machine. Now what else do I need to get going?

I just bought my first sewing machine, yay! I like to hand sew little things, but know nothing about using a machine. Ultimately, I would like to be able to sew and alter my own clothes. I'm signed up for classes in June, but want to practice a bit on my own in the meantime. What else do I need besides a machine to get going?
- Scissors, I presume. Anything I should look out for? Any specific product recommendations?
- Thread: what type?
- Fabric: what type of fabric is good for a beginner to practice with?
- Pins. Is a pincushion necessary at this stage?
I have set aside about 50 euros for initial supplies. If you could help me compile my shopping list, I would be most grateful!
