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.
It has been so hot this Summer that I am really looking forward to some Fall weather relief. September to November is my favorite time of the year. I love the colors, the weather, and the holidays. I can’t wait.
To celebrate I am offering several embroidery designs for free! They were created using my auto punch Futura software. Make sure you test them on your fabric first.

The sew easy presser foot looks like a wonderful addition for all sewers. Here is a foot that will keep your stitching straight. An adjustable guide moves to any seam width. You can also coordinate your machines needle position for additional seam widths. The attached video says it all. Here is a link to purchase the Sew Easy presser foot. Fits most low shank machines.

Check out Janome, Brother and Juki sewing machine feet and accessories. These are one of a kind items and when they are gone…… All items are available in our on line shop!
The sewing machine extension slide on table is one of my favorite sewing accessories. It gives the sewer so much more room to support the fabric as you sew or quilt. I always say that the better your equipment the better the sewing will end up. A popular Singer sewing table is now in stock. See if it fits your machine.
If you are a sewer or a quilter you know the support of a sewing table really helps you sew better. The bed extension holds the weight of your garment or quilt so that when you stitch, the project is not working against you. Another thing to say about a bed extension is that it makes sewing physically easier on you.
I offer several options for sewers in bed extensions. Alphasew offers a Universal bed extension that is easily adjusted to work with must home sewing machines. Also notice the accessory storage that puts you most used items at your fingertips. For a limited time I am offering the Alphasew extension table at a great savings.

My latest addition is a used Bernina 1080! For those who know Bernina as a high quality work horse, this is the machine for you. The used Bernina 1080 electronic sewing machine is in excellent condition and when it runs it purrs. This machine was one of the last Bernina made in Switzerland and was used by my mom for about 15 years. The machine has almost everything you could want in a Bernina. Great for the quilter and the heirloom sewer. Easy enough for the beginner. Read more about this great find here.
