Weekly I’ll have something new to learn or a straightforward task to make.
(There it’s still regular threads and lessons combined in too.) Most of the conversation and tasks will involve 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 the main Sewing 101 Series since you’ll see this cool logo. (above)
Today I’ll start off the line talking about anything very fundamental:
Learning your sewing machine.
Every sewing machine is different, however the same.
Consider it such as a car. You may get an applied one, an vintage one, your simple product, the top of the range luxury design or anything between – perfect for the family. Each of them get you from A to W (I suggest sew), but they likewise have different functions, prime speeds, and feel various as you sew with them. And sure, being a car, specific devices are designed much better than others.
That you do not need a fancy unit to start. Anything easy can work. Understand things you need and you can generally upgrade later.
The two (working) sewing machines I’ve within my home are extremely basic. A Singer Self-confidence 7470 and a Janome Hi Pet equipment (which belongs to my six year old). Equally get the work performed, but have different feels. I really do every one of my sewing on the Artist — actually the quilting.
My performer is not a the top of the range unit, but it is actually nice. It works good and has all of the functions I need.
