Each week I’ll have anything new to learn or a straightforward task to make.


(There it’s still standard posts and courses blended in too.) Most of the discussion and jobs calls for using sewing machines. There will be 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 Series because you’ll see this great logo. (above)

Nowadays I’ll start out the collection referring to something very fundamental:

Observing your sewing machine.
Every sewing unit differs, nevertheless the same.

Think of it such as a car. You can get an applied one, an classic one, your simple product, the the surface of the line luxurious product or something in between – great for the family. They all allow you to get from A to B (I suggest sew), but they likewise have different characteristics, prime speeds, and experience different as you sew with them. And sure, just like a vehicle, specific machines are designed a lot better than others.

You never require a nice machine to start. Something easy will work. Learn things you need and you are able to generally upgrade later.

Both (working) sewing products I’ve in my home are extremely basic. A Performer Assurance 7470 and a Janome Hello Cat unit (which goes to my six year old). Both get the job performed, but have very different feels. I actually do most of my sewing on the Singer — also the quilting.

My performer is not a the the surface of the point device, but it is really nice. It operates great and has most of the functions I need.
