(There will still be usual articles and tutorials blended in too.) Most of the conversation and jobs will involve applying sewing machines. There is a few give sewing articles, but I will be focusing mostly on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s the main Sewing 101 Series since you’ll see this great logo. (above)

Nowadays I’ll start off the series discussing something really standard:

Observing your sewing machine.
Every sewing machine differs, nevertheless the same.

Think of it such as for instance a car. You may get a used one, an vintage one, your standard design, the top of the line luxurious design or something in between – perfect for the family. They all enable you to get from A to T (I mean sew), but they likewise have various characteristics, prime rates, and sense different as you sew with them. And sure, being a vehicle, particular machines are made much better than others.

You never need a fancy machine to start. Something simple will work. Understand what you need and you can always update later.

The two (working) sewing machines I’ve in my house are very basic. A Artist Confidence 7470 and a Janome Hi Cat unit (which belongs to my six year old). Equally get the task performed, but have different feels. I do all my sewing on the Singer — even the quilting.

My performer is not really a the the surface of the point device, but it is really nice. It performs good and has most of the features I need.
