Each week I’ll have something new to learn or an easy task to make.


(There will still be typical threads and courses mixed in too.) Most of the debate and jobs calls for applying sewing machines. There would have been a several hand sewing posts, but I will be focusing mainly on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s part of the Sewing 101 Line because you’ll see this great logo. (above)

Nowadays I’ll start off the series speaing frankly about anything really standard:

Learning your sewing machine.
Every sewing machine is different, however the same.

Consider it like a car. You will get a used one, an classic one, your fundamental design, the the surface of the range luxury product or anything in between – great for the family. Each of them enable you to get from A to T (I mean sew), but they also have different functions, prime rates, and feel various as you sew with them. And sure, just like a vehicle, particular products are made much better than others.

You do not desire a expensive device to start. Anything easy will work. Learn the thing you need and you can generally update later.

Both (working) sewing machines I have in my own house are extremely basic. A Performer Assurance 7470 and a Janome Hi Kitty device (which goes to my six year old). Both get the job done, but have very different feels. I actually do every one of my sewing on the Singer — also the quilting.

My singer is not a the the surface of the point machine, but it’s actually nice. It operates good and has most of the functions I need.
