My first sewing machine

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That I sewed my very first piece of clothing (a white jumpsuit) for my Teddy. Would love to have it now to take a photo to show everyone. What advice would you give someone starting this project? My mum gave me this machine and has encouraged me over the years. I think she thought I was safer with this machine than her bigger one. She has an industrial machine that I would like to have a go on, she is very protective of that one. I moved on to a Treadle machine as I got older. I am on to my fourth sewing machine now. I have two that I alternate between, and an overlocker.

What you will need

  • I have sewn mainly with cotton with this machine

Q&A with Tandunn

I'm looking to buy a sewing/embroidery machine. I haven't seen in a long time but in high school I made my own clothing. I 've sewn since then, but not a lot. Any suggestions for a decent machine that won't break the bank?
Tandunn answered:
I suggest you contact Vanessa on this CRAFTSY site, she has a long arm machine and has also tried several other.
