Newest Pictures Fantastic Photographs Shwin: Sewing 101: Pleats Strategies Weekly I’ll have… Thoughts

Weekly I’ll have something new to master or a straightforward task to make.


(There it’s still usual articles and tutorials blended in too.) All of the discussion and projects will involve using sewing machines. There would have been a few hand sewing articles, but I’ll be concentrating 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 off the series speaing frankly about anything very fundamental:

Observing your sewing machine.
Every sewing machine differs, but the same.

Think of it such as a car. You can get a used one, an classic one, your standard product, the the top of line luxury product or something in between – ideal for the family. They all get you from A to B (I mean sew), but they also have different functions, prime rates, and sense various as you sew with them. And yes, being a vehicle, specific machines are made a lot better than others.

You never require a fancy device to start. Something simple may work. Learn what you need and you can always update later.

The 2 (working) sewing models I’ve within my home are very basic. A Singer Self-confidence 7470 and a Janome Hi Pet machine (which goes to my six year old). Equally get the work performed, but have very different feels. I really do each of my sewing on the Singer — actually the quilting.

My artist is not a the top of the line device, but it’s actually nice. It operates great and has all of the features I need.
