Each week I’ll have something new to understand or a simple challenge to make.
(There it’s still regular articles and tutorials combined in too.) A lot of the conversation and jobs will involve using sewing machines. There would have been a few hand sewing posts, but I’m going to be focusing mainly on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s area of the Sewing 101 Line because you’ll see that great logo. (above)
Nowadays I’ll start out the series talking about anything really standard:
Learning your sewing machine.
Every sewing unit differs, but the same.
Consider it such as a car. You will get an applied one, an old-fashioned one, your fundamental product, the the surface of the point luxury model or something in between – perfect for the family. All of them allow you to get from A to N (I suggest sew), but they also have various features, prime rates, and experience different as you sew with them. And yes, as being a vehicle, particular devices are built better than others.
You don’t desire a elegant unit to start. Anything easy can work. Understand things you need and you are able to always upgrade later.
Both (working) sewing models I have within my home are very basic. A Artist Self-confidence 7470 and a Janome Hello Kitty equipment (which goes to my six year old). Both get the task performed, but have different feels. I do each of my sewing on the Performer — also the quilting.
My performer is not just a the the surface of the line device, but it is really nice. It performs great and has all the characteristics I need.
