Each week I’ll have something new to master or an easy project to make.


(There it’s still normal articles and guides combined in too.) Most of the conversation and projects will involve applying sewing machines. There will be a few hand sewing posts, but I’ll be focusing largely on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s part of the Sewing 101 Collection since you’ll see this cool logo. (above)

Nowadays I’ll begin the collection speaing frankly about something very standard:

Learning your sewing machine.
Every sewing machine is significantly diffent, but the same.

Consider it such as a car. You can get an applied one, an traditional one, your simple product, the the top of range luxury model or something between – ideal for the family. All of them allow you to get from A to N (I suggest sew), but they likewise have different characteristics, prime speeds, and sense various as you sew with them. And yes, as being a car, specific devices are made much better than others.

You never need a nice device to start. Something simple may work. Understand what you need and you can generally update later.

Both (working) sewing products I’ve in my house are extremely basic. A Artist Assurance 7470 and a Janome Hi Kitty equipment (which belongs to my six year old). Both get the work done, but have completely different feels. I actually do all of my sewing on the Singer — also the quilting.

My singer is not really a the the top of range machine, but it’s really nice. It works great and has all the characteristics I need.
