Great Snap Shots Sewing 101 – Shwin and Shwin Popular

Every week I’ll have something new to master or an easy project to make.


(There will still be standard articles and lessons blended in too.) All the conversation and projects will involve applying sewing machines. There would have been a several hand sewing articles, but I will be concentrating mostly on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s the main Sewing 101 Collection since you’ll see that cool logo. (above)

Today I’ll begin the line talking about something very fundamental:

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

Think of it such as a car. You may get a used one, an old-fashioned one, your fundamental model, the the surface of the point luxury model or something between – ideal for the family. Each of them enable you to get from A to T (I mean sew), but they also have various features, prime rates, and feel various as you sew with them. And yes, just like a car, specific models are made better than others.

You do not need a expensive device to start. Anything simple will work. Learn the thing you need and you are able to generally upgrade later.

The two (working) sewing machines I have in my own home are very basic. A Singer Confidence 7470 and a Janome Hi Kitty unit (which goes to my six year old). Both get the task done, but have very different feels. I do each of my sewing on the Singer — also the quilting.

My performer is not really a the top of the line machine, but it is actually nice. It operates great and has most of the characteristics I need.
