Each week I’ll have something new to understand or an easy task to make.
(There will still be normal threads and guides blended in too.) Most of the conversation and projects calls for using sewing machines. There will be a several hand sewing posts, but I’m going to be focusing mostly on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s part of the Sewing 101 Collection because you’ll see this cool logo. (above)
Today I’ll start out the collection discussing something very basic:
Getting to know your sewing machine.
Every sewing unit is significantly diffent, but the same.
Consider it such as for instance a car. You will get a used one, an classic one, your simple model, the the top of point luxurious model or something in between – great for the family. Each of them enable you to get from A to W (I suggest sew), but they likewise have various features, prime speeds, and feel different as you sew with them. And yes, as being a car, certain devices are made a lot better than others.
That you don’t require a elegant machine to start. Anything simple can work. Learn the thing you need and you can always update later.
The two (working) sewing machines I have within my home are very basic. A Artist Confidence 7470 and a Janome Hello Cat device (which goes to my six year old). Equally get the job done, but have completely different feels. I really do each of my sewing on the Singer — even the quilting.
My performer is not a the the top of range machine, but it’s actually nice. It performs good and has all the characteristics I need.
