Each week I’ll have something new to understand or an easy task to make.

(There will still be standard posts and guides mixed in too.) All of the conversation and projects calls for applying sewing machines. There would have been a few hand sewing threads, but I will be focusing mostly on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s part of the Sewing 101 Series since you’ll see this great logo. (above)

Today I’ll start out the series speaking about anything really standard:

Getting to know your sewing machine.
Every sewing device is different, but the same.

Consider it such as a car. You will get a used one, an classic one, your fundamental product, the the surface of the line luxury product or anything between – perfect for the family. Each of them get you from A to T (I suggest sew), but they likewise have various characteristics, prime speeds, and sense various as you sew with them. And sure, just like a vehicle, specific machines are made much better than others.

You don’t require a fancy device to start. Something simple may work. Learn the thing you need and you can always update later.

The two (working) sewing products I’ve in my house are very basic. A Performer Assurance 7470 and a Janome Hi Cat equipment (which belongs to my six year old). Equally get the work performed, but have very different feels. I do every one of my sewing on the Performer — actually the quilting.

My performer is not really a the the top of range equipment, but it is really nice. It operates good and has all of the features I need.
