(There it’s still standard threads and guides mixed in too.) All of the conversation and jobs calls for using sewing machines. There would have been a several give sewing threads, but I’ll be concentrating primarily on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s part of the Sewing 101 Series because you’ll see this cool logo.

Nowadays I’ll start out the line referring to something very simple:

Getting to know your sewing machine.
Every sewing device is different, however the same.

Consider it like a car. You will get an applied one, an traditional one, your standard design, the top of the point luxury model or something between – great for the family. They all get you from A to T (I suggest sew), but there is also various characteristics, top speeds, and experience various as you sew with them. And yes, just like a car, particular models are built much better than others.

You do not need a nice machine to start. Something easy can work. Understand the thing you need and you are able to generally upgrade later.

Both (working) sewing machines I have in my house are very basic. A Singer Confidence 7470 and a Janome Hello Cat equipment (which belongs to my six year old). Both get the work done, but have different feels. I actually do most of my sewing on the Performer — even the quilting.

My performer is not a the the top of range equipment, but it’s actually nice. It works great and has all of the functions I need.
