Every week I’ll have something new to master or an easy challenge to make.
(There will still be usual posts and lessons mixed in too.) The majority of the discussion and jobs will involve using sewing machines. There will be a few hand sewing articles, but I’ll be concentrating largely on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s area of the Sewing 101 Collection since you’ll see that cool logo. (above)
Today I’ll start off the collection speaing frankly about anything very standard:
Getting to know your sewing machine.
Every sewing machine is significantly diffent, however the same.
Consider it just like a car. You can get an applied one, an classic one, your simple product, the top of the point luxury model or something in between – perfect for the family. All of them enable you to get from A to B (I suggest sew), but there is also different functions, top rates, and sense various as you sew with them. And sure, as being a vehicle, certain machines are built better than others.
That you don’t desire a elegant unit to start. Anything easy may work. Learn what you need and you are able to always upgrade later.
The 2 (working) sewing products I have in my own home are very basic. A Performer Assurance 7470 and a Janome Hi Kitty unit (which belongs to my six year old). Both get the job performed, but have different feels. I do most of my sewing on the Singer — even the quilting.
My performer is not just a the top of the line machine, but it’s really nice. It works good and has all the features I need.
