Every week I’ll have something new to understand or an easy project to make.
(There it’s still regular posts and courses combined in too.) All the discussion and tasks will involve using sewing machines. There is a few hand sewing posts, but I’ll be focusing mainly on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s part of the Sewing 101 Line since you’ll see that cool logo. (above)
Today I’ll start out the series speaking about something very standard:
Observing your sewing machine.
Every sewing equipment differs, however the same.
Think of it just like a car. You can get an applied one, an old-fashioned one, your simple model, the top of the line luxurious model or anything between – perfect for the family. Each of them get you from A to B (I mean sew), but they likewise have various characteristics, prime rates, and experience different as you sew with them. And yes, being a car, certain devices are built better than others.
You do not require a elegant equipment to start. Something simple can work. Learn things you need and you are able to always update later.
Both (working) sewing machines I’ve in my home are very basic. A Artist Assurance 7470 and a Janome Hi Pet machine (which belongs to my six year old). Both get the task done, but have very different feels. I do most of my sewing on the Performer — actually the quilting.
My artist is not just a the the surface of the line unit, but it’s really nice. It performs good and has all the features I need.
