Every week I’ll have something new to understand or a simple project to make.
(There will still be typical articles and lessons mixed in too.) Most of the conversation and jobs calls for using sewing machines. There is a few hand sewing posts, but I will be concentrating mainly on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s area of the Sewing 101 Collection since you’ll see that cool logo. (above)
Today I’ll start out the line referring to anything really fundamental:
Learning your sewing machine.
Every sewing machine is significantly diffent, but the same.
Think of it such as a car. You may get a used one, an antique one, your fundamental design, the top of the line luxurious design or something between – ideal for the family. All of them allow you to get from A to T (I suggest sew), but they also have various features, top rates, and feel various as you sew with them. And yes, being a vehicle, particular devices are designed a lot better than others.
You don’t desire a fancy machine to start. Anything easy will work. Understand the thing you need and you can generally update later.
Both (working) sewing products I have within my home are extremely basic. A Singer Assurance 7470 and a Janome Hi Kitten machine (which belongs to my six year old). Both get the job performed, but have very different feels. I actually do every one of my sewing on the Singer — also the quilting.
My artist is not really a the the surface of the range machine, but it’s actually nice. It works great and has most of the functions I need.
