Good Images Sewing 101 – Shwin and Shwin Style

Each week I’ll have something new to understand or a straightforward task to make.


(There will still be regular posts and lessons combined in too.) A lot of the debate and projects will involve applying sewing machines. There is a few give sewing posts, but I’ll be focusing mostly 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 begin the collection referring to something really standard:

Observing your sewing machine.
Every sewing unit is different, nevertheless the same.

Consider it such as a car. You may get an applied one, an vintage one, your basic model, the top of the range luxurious model or something among – ideal for the family. They all enable you to get from A to T (I suggest sew), but they also have various functions, top rates, and feel various as you sew with them. And yes, being a vehicle, certain devices are made better than others.

You do not require a nice unit to start. Anything simple may work. Understand what you need and you are able to generally update later.

The two (working) sewing models I have in my house are very basic. A Performer Assurance 7470 and a Janome Hi Kitten device (which goes to my six year old). Both get the task performed, but have very different feels. I do most of my sewing on the Artist — also the quilting.

My singer is not really a the the top of point unit, but it is actually nice. It works good and has all the characteristics I need.
