Great Free 101: Dicing Onions Like a Pro | Make: Suggestions

Weekly I’ll have something new to learn or a straightforward task to make.


(There it’s still typical articles and guides combined in too.) The majority of the conversation and tasks will involve using sewing machines. There will be a several hand sewing posts, but I will be concentrating mostly on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s area of the Sewing 101 Series because you’ll see this cool logo. (above)

Nowadays I’ll start off the line speaking about something really standard:

Learning your sewing machine.
Every sewing equipment differs, however the same.

Consider it like a car. You may get a used one, an old-fashioned one, your fundamental model, the the surface of the point luxury design or anything between – ideal for the family. Each of them enable you to get from A to N (I mean sew), but there is also various functions, prime rates, and sense different as you sew with them. And sure, as being a car, certain devices are made better than others.

You never need a nice unit to start. Anything simple may work. Understand things you need and you can generally update later.

The 2 (working) sewing models I’ve in my home are extremely basic. A Performer Self-confidence 7470 and a Janome Hi Kitty unit (which goes to my six year old). Both get the work done, but have different feels. I really do most of my sewing on the Performer — even the quilting.

My performer is not just a the top of the range machine, but it’s really nice. It performs great and has all the functions I need.
