Weekly I’ll have something new to master or a straightforward challenge to make.
(There will still be normal posts and guides combined in too.) All of the debate and projects will involve applying sewing machines. There is a several give sewing posts, but I will be focusing mainly on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s area of the Sewing 101 Series because you’ll see this great logo. (above)
Today I’ll start out the series speaking about something very standard:
Learning your sewing machine.
Every sewing machine is significantly diffent, however the same.
Think of it just like a car. You will get a used one, an antique one, your standard product, the the surface of the line luxury design or anything in between – great for the family. Each of them allow you to get from A to B (I mean sew), but they also have various characteristics, top speeds, and feel various as you sew with them. And yes, as being a vehicle, particular devices are made a lot better than others.
You do not desire a extravagant device to start. Something simple may work. Understand things you need and you can generally upgrade later.
The 2 (working) sewing machines I have within my home are extremely basic. A Performer Self-confidence 7470 and a Janome Hi Pet equipment (which belongs to my six year old). Equally get the task done, but have very different feels. I actually do most of my sewing on the Performer — actually the quilting.
My singer is not a the the surface of the range unit, but it is actually nice. It performs great and has all of the features I need.
