Each week I’ll have something new to understand or a simple challenge to make.
(There it’s still normal threads and tutorials mixed in too.) Most of the conversation and jobs will involve applying sewing machines. There is a several give sewing threads, but I’ll be concentrating largely on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s the main Sewing 101 Series because you’ll see that cool logo. (above)
Today I’ll start off the line discussing something very standard:
Getting to know your sewing machine.
Every sewing device differs, but the same.
Consider it such as for instance a car. You will get an applied one, an old-fashioned one, your basic model, the the top of point luxury model or anything between – great for the family. Each of them get you from A to T (I mean sew), but they likewise have different characteristics, top speeds, and feel different as you sew with them. And sure, being a vehicle, certain machines are built better than others.
That you don’t desire a nice machine to start. Anything simple will work. Learn what you need and you are able to always update later.
Both (working) sewing machines I have in my home are very basic. A Artist Confidence 7470 and a Janome Hello Cat unit (which goes to my six year old). Both get the task done, but have different feels. I really do every one of my sewing on the Artist — actually the quilting.
My artist is not a the the surface of the point device, but it’s really nice. It operates good and has all the functions I need.
