Each week I’ll have anything new to learn or a simple project to make.

(There will still be normal threads and tutorials combined in too.) All of the discussion and projects calls for using sewing machines. There is a few hand sewing threads, but I’m going to be focusing largely on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s the main Sewing 101 Collection since you’ll see that great logo. (above)

Today I’ll start off the line talking about something really fundamental:

Getting to know your sewing machine.
Every sewing equipment is significantly diffent, nevertheless the same.

Consider it like a car. You can get a used one, an old-fashioned one, your basic design, the top of the range luxury product or something in between – ideal for the family. Each of them get you from A to B (I mean sew), but they also have different functions, top speeds, and sense various as you sew with them. And yes, as being a car, certain products are built better than others.

That you do not desire a elegant equipment to start. Something easy can work. Learn the thing you need and you can always upgrade later.

The two (working) sewing products I have within my house are very basic. A Singer Assurance 7470 and a Janome Hello Kitty unit (which belongs to my six year old). Equally get the work done, but have different feels. I really do all of my sewing on the Performer — even the quilting.

My performer is not a the the surface of the point device, but it’s really nice. It works good and has all of the features I need.
