(There it’s still regular threads and lessons blended in too.) The majority of the discussion and projects will involve using sewing machines. There is a few give sewing articles, but I will be focusing mostly on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s the main Sewing 101 Series since you’ll see that cool logo. (above)

Today I’ll start out the line discussing anything very fundamental:

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

Consider it like a car. You may get a used one, an vintage one, your standard model, the top of the line luxurious model or something in between – great for the family. They all get you from A to N (I suggest sew), but they also have various functions, prime speeds, and sense different as you sew with them. And yes, just like a vehicle, specific models are made a lot better than others.

You don’t desire a fancy machine to start. Anything simple will work. Understand what you need and you are able to always update later.

The two (working) sewing devices I have in my house are extremely basic. A Performer Assurance 7470 and a Janome Hi Kitten unit (which belongs to my six year old). Both get the work performed, but have very different feels. I do all my sewing on the Performer — even the quilting.

My singer is not just a the the surface of the range device, but it is actually nice. It operates great and has all the functions I need.
