Weekly I’ll have anything new to understand or a simple challenge to make.
(There will still be regular articles and courses blended in too.) Most of the discussion and jobs will involve using sewing machines. There will be a several hand sewing articles, but I’ll be focusing largely on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s the main Sewing 101 Line because you’ll see this cool logo. (above)
Today I’ll start off the line referring to anything very standard:
Getting to know your sewing machine.
Every sewing machine is significantly diffent, nevertheless the same.
Think of it such as for instance a car. You may get an applied one, an vintage one, your simple product, the the top of line luxurious product or something in between – ideal for the family. All of them enable you to get from A to T (I suggest sew), but they likewise have different functions, top rates, and feel different as you sew with them. And sure, being a vehicle, certain devices are built much better than others.
You do not need a nice machine to start. Anything simple will work. Learn what you need and you can always upgrade later.
The two (working) sewing machines I have in my house are very basic. A Singer Assurance 7470 and a Janome Hi Cat unit (which goes to my six year old). Equally get the task done, but have very different feels. I do most of my sewing on the Singer — even the quilting.
My artist is not really a the the top of line device, but it’s actually nice. It works great and has all of the functions I need.
