Weekly I’ll have something new to master or a simple project to make.
(There will still be normal posts and guides mixed in too.) The majority of the discussion and projects will involve applying sewing machines. There is a several hand sewing threads, but I’m going to be focusing largely on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s part of the Sewing 101 Series since you’ll see that great logo. (above)
Today I’ll start out the series talking about anything very fundamental:
Observing your sewing machine.
Every sewing machine is different, however the same.
Think of it such as a car. You can get an applied one, an old-fashioned one, your fundamental product, the the surface of the point luxurious design or something between – perfect for the family. All of them allow you to get from A to T (I mean sew), but there is also different features, prime speeds, and feel different as you sew with them. And sure, as being a car, certain machines are designed better than others.
You do not desire a extravagant machine to start. Anything easy will work. Learn what you need and you are able to generally update later.
Both (working) sewing products I have in my own house are extremely basic. A Singer Confidence 7470 and a Janome Hello Kitty device (which goes to my six year old). Both get the task performed, but have completely different feels. I actually do all my sewing on the Singer — also the quilting.
My artist is not really a the top of the range machine, but it’s actually nice. It works good and has most of the features I need.
