Each week I’ll have something new to master or a simple project to make.
(There it’s still usual threads and lessons mixed in too.) A lot of the discussion and projects calls for using sewing machines. There is a few hand sewing posts, but I’ll be concentrating mainly on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s part of the Sewing 101 Collection since you’ll see that great logo. (above)
Nowadays I’ll start off the line discussing something really fundamental:
Observing your sewing machine.
Every sewing machine differs, however the same.
Consider it just like a car. You will get an applied one, an antique one, your simple design, the top of the line luxury product or something in between – perfect for the family. All of them allow you to get from A to T (I suggest sew), but there is also various characteristics, top rates, and sense different as you sew with them. And yes, as being a vehicle, specific devices are built a lot better than others.
That you do not desire a elegant device to start. Anything simple will work. Understand the thing you need and you can always update later.
Both (working) sewing devices I’ve in my own home are extremely basic. A Performer Confidence 7470 and a Janome Hi Kitty machine (which goes to my six year old). Both get the work done, but have very different feels. I actually do most of my sewing on the Performer — actually the quilting.
My performer is not a the the surface of the range device, but it is actually nice. It works great and has most of the features I need.
