Weekly I’ll have anything new to master or a straightforward task to make.
(There will still be regular posts and guides blended in too.) All the discussion and projects calls for using sewing machines. There is a few give sewing posts, but I’m going to be focusing mostly on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s part of the Sewing 101 Series because you’ll see this cool logo. (above)
Nowadays I’ll start out the collection referring to something really basic:
Learning your sewing machine.
Every sewing machine is significantly diffent, nevertheless the same.
Consider it such as for instance a car. You may get a used one, an antique one, your standard model, the the top of point luxurious product or something in between – great for the family. Each of them enable you to get from A to B (I mean sew), but they also have different characteristics, top rates, and sense various as you sew with them. And sure, just like a vehicle, certain products are designed much better than others.
You don’t desire a expensive machine to start. Anything simple will work. Understand the thing you need and you are able to generally update later.
The 2 (working) sewing devices I’ve in my house are extremely basic. A Performer Confidence 7470 and a Janome Hi Cat device (which belongs to my six year old). Both get the work done, but have different feels. I do most of my sewing on the Singer — actually the quilting.
My performer is not a the the top of point machine, but it is actually nice. It performs great and has all the characteristics I need.
