Fantastic Absolutely Free Sewing 101 – All About Sergers • Heather Handmade Strategies

Every week I’ll have anything new to master or an easy challenge to make.


(There will still be normal threads and lessons blended in too.) Most of the conversation and jobs calls for using sewing machines. There will be a few give sewing posts, but I’ll be concentrating largely on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s the main Sewing 101 Series because you’ll see this great logo. (above)

Nowadays I’ll start out the line speaking about something really simple:

Learning your sewing machine.
Every sewing equipment is significantly diffent, nevertheless the same.

Think of it like a car. You can get an applied one, an old-fashioned one, your fundamental product, the the top of line luxury design or anything among – great for the family. All of them allow you to get from A to T (I suggest sew), but there is also different features, prime speeds, and sense various as you sew with them. And yes, being a car, certain machines are designed much better than others.

You never desire a extravagant machine to start. Anything easy will work. Understand things you need and you can always upgrade later.

The 2 (working) sewing products I’ve in my home are extremely basic. A Performer Self-confidence 7470 and a Janome Hello Cat equipment (which goes to my six year old). Both get the job performed, but have very different feels. I actually do all my sewing on the Performer — even the quilting.

My performer is not just a the top of the point equipment, but it’s actually nice. It operates great and has all the characteristics I need.
