Every week I’ll have anything new to understand or an easy project to make.
(There will still be normal posts and lessons mixed in too.) All the conversation and tasks will involve using sewing machines. There would have been a few hand sewing posts, but I’m going to be focusing mainly on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s the main Sewing 101 Series because you’ll see this great logo. (above)
Today I’ll start off the series discussing something very simple:
Learning your sewing machine.
Every sewing unit is significantly diffent, nevertheless the same.
Consider it such as a car. You will get an applied one, an old-fashioned one, your basic model, the the surface of the range luxurious design or something in between – perfect for the family. All of them enable you to get from A to T (I suggest sew), but they likewise have different features, top speeds, and sense different as you sew with them. And yes, as being a car, certain machines are made a lot better than others.
You do not require a elegant unit to start. Anything easy can work. Understand what you need and you can generally upgrade later.
The two (working) sewing models I have in my home are very basic. A Singer Confidence 7470 and a Janome Hi Pet unit (which belongs to my six year old). Equally get the work done, but have different feels. I really do each of my sewing on the Artist — actually the quilting.
My singer is not just a the top of the line equipment, but it is actually nice. It operates great and has all of the features I need.
