Learn to use your Sewing Machine to it’s fullest

Pin It

Have you  recently upgraded or purchased a new sewing machine for the first time? Even if you are an experienced sewer you should take the time to learn what features come with your new machine. Jenny’s Sewing Studio offers a 2 hour class on machine instruction and since these classes are one on one, they can be scheduled most afternoons during the week and weekend.

Most new machines will do zig-zag, blind hem, mending stitches, buttonholes, and some decorative stitches. I personally like electronic machines since stitch selection is automatic. I also recommend a machine that has a front drop in bobbin since it is much easier to operate.

Accessories and sewing machine feet make your sewing machine have additional strengths. Take a look at some pieces Jenny’s Sewing Studio offers. You may consider them for your machine.

The walking foot helps keep layers even and feed together as you see. Consider the walking foot for top stitching and quilting. I always use the walking foot to sew bindings in place.

Seams sew easy is a rather new sewing foot that gives you a gauge for the seam allowance. Place the gauge at 5/8″ for regular sewing or 3/8″ for a top stitch. This foot helps you sew straight and look more professional.

The pearls and piping foot is a real helpful guide. I really like using 1/4″ prepacked piping to make a pillow or finish a lapel. Piping makes the edge turn so much better. Make the piping match or make it contrast. The piping foot keeps you on track when you place the piping in the groove.

A lot of sewers like inserting an invisible zipper. The invisible zipper foot is now a snap on foot. Just press the zipper coil to flatten the curve and use the grooved foot to install the zipper. It is fast and easy.

Place the satin stitch foot on your machine. We used the open toe foot. Decide where you want the circle and how large you need it. Place a thumb tack underneath the fabric. It will extend into the center of the circle on the right side of the fabric. There is an adjustment screw on the top of the attachment and as you roll the white dial the diameter grows smaller or larger.  The shank has a hole under the quilt bar hole that the circular stitcher slides into.

Adjust the widthYou will need to slide the circular stitcher in position for every circle. The attachment sits on the thumb screw. Lower the presser foot and guide the fabric and it will feed in a circle. A video link for you to watch is on the circular stitcher product page.
