Every week I’ll have something new to understand or an easy challenge to make.
(There it’s still standard threads and tutorials mixed in too.) A lot of the discussion and jobs will involve applying sewing machines. There is a several hand sewing posts, but I will be concentrating mostly on sewing with a machine. You’ll know it’s part of the Sewing 101 Collection because you’ll see that cool logo. (above)
Nowadays I’ll start out the series speaing frankly about something really fundamental:
Getting to know your sewing machine.
Every sewing equipment is significantly diffent, nevertheless the same.
Consider it like a car. You will get a used one, an old-fashioned one, your simple model, the top of the line luxury design or something between – perfect for the family. They all enable you to get from A to B (I mean sew), but they also have various functions, prime rates, and sense various as you sew with them. And sure, being a car, certain machines are designed better than others.
You do not need a fancy equipment to start. Something easy can work. Learn the thing you need and you are able to generally upgrade later.
The 2 (working) sewing products I have in my own home are extremely basic. A Artist Confidence 7470 and a Janome Hello Kitten equipment (which goes to my six year old). Both get the job performed, but have very different feels. I really do all of my sewing on the Singer — even the quilting.
My artist is not just a the top of the line device, but it is actually nice. It works great and has all the functions I need.
