Every week I’ll have anything new to understand or an easy task to make.
(There will still be typical threads and lessons mixed in too.) Most of the debate and projects will involve using sewing machines. There is a several hand sewing posts, but I will be focusing largely on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s part of the Sewing 101 Line because you’ll see that great logo. (above)
Today I’ll start off the collection talking about something very fundamental:
Observing your sewing machine.
Every sewing device is significantly diffent, but the same.
Think of it such as for instance a car. You will get an applied one, an classic one, your simple model, the top of the range luxurious model or anything between – ideal for the family. They all allow you to get from A to B (I mean sew), but there is also various characteristics, prime rates, and sense different as you sew with them. And sure, being a car, particular machines are made much better than others.
You do not need a elegant device to start. Anything simple can work. Understand what you need and you can always upgrade later.
Both (working) sewing machines I have within my house are extremely basic. A Performer Confidence 7470 and a Janome Hello Kitty unit (which goes to my six year old). Equally get the work performed, but have completely different feels. I really do most of my sewing on the Singer — also the quilting.
My singer is not just a the top of the line unit, but it’s really nice. It operates great and has all of the characteristics I need.
