Latest Pic Beginning Sewing 101 Thoughts

Each week I’ll have something new to learn or a simple challenge to make.


(There will still be typical posts and guides blended in too.) The majority of the debate and projects will involve using sewing machines. There will be a several hand sewing articles, but I’ll be concentrating mostly on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s area of the Sewing 101 Line because you’ll see that cool logo. (above)

Nowadays I’ll begin the line talking about something really standard:

Observing your sewing machine.
Every sewing device is different, but the same.

Consider it like a car. You will get a used one, an classic one, your basic design, the top of the point luxury product or anything in between – great for the family. Each of them allow you to get from A to B (I suggest sew), but they likewise have various characteristics, top rates, and feel various as you sew with them. And sure, as being a car, particular products are designed a lot better than others.

You don’t need a elegant unit to start. Anything simple will work. Learn the thing you need and you are able to always update later.

The 2 (working) sewing devices I’ve within my house are extremely basic. A Performer Self-confidence 7470 and a Janome Hello Kitty unit (which belongs to my six year old). Both get the work performed, but have very different feels. I do all of my sewing on the Artist — also the quilting.

My performer is not really a the the top of line machine, but it is actually nice. It performs good and has all the features I need.
