Each week I’ll have something new to learn or a straightforward project to make.
(There will still be regular threads and guides mixed in too.) A lot of the debate and tasks will involve using sewing machines. There will be a several give sewing posts, but I’m going to be focusing largely on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s the main Sewing 101 Line since you’ll see that cool logo. (above)
Nowadays I’ll start out the series speaing frankly about anything really fundamental:
Getting to know your sewing machine.
Every sewing machine is significantly diffent, however the same.
Think of it such as a car. You may get a used one, an old-fashioned one, your basic design, the top of the range luxury design or something between – perfect for the family. Each of them enable you to get from A to N (I suggest sew), but there is also different features, top rates, and feel different as you sew with them. And sure, just like a vehicle, certain machines are made much better than others.
You do not desire a elegant device to start. Anything simple will work. Learn things you need and you can generally upgrade later.
The 2 (working) sewing products I’ve in my house are extremely basic. A Artist Assurance 7470 and a Janome Hello Cat device (which belongs to my six year old). Both get the job done, but have different feels. I really do each of my sewing on the Artist — actually the quilting.
My performer is not just a the top of the line device, but it’s actually nice. It works good and has all the features I need.
