Summary
  • "Knowing which machine is right for you is a great first step to learning how to sew, but knowing how to use that machine inside-out is crucial in order to get the best out of it. Sewing Machine Secrets is an indispensable resource for sewers at all levels, showing the reader how to choose, use, and maintain their sewing machine, mastering sewing techniques and learning handy tips along the way. Without being brand specific, this book discusses the functionality of each machine type (sewing, embroidery, overlock, etc) along with its attachments and accessories; explaining what you should look out for when choosing a machine, how to care for your machine, and also-most importantly-how each feature and foot can be used and manipulated to help you better your sewing skills, providing handy tricks and secrets along the way. Whether you're just starting out with your first sewing machine or have been sewing for a while and want to build on your skills, this book gives you practical advice and tips to help extend the life of your sewing machine and master techniques you didn't think you could do. The book is divided into two sections: machines and feet. Section one deals with all the aspects of sewing machines; providing an overview of each type and identifying what each machine is best suited to, what its advantages and limitations are, necessary accessories as well as optional accessories, how to maintain and replace parts, and instructions on how to use it. Section two uses a more technique based approach, identifying the most versatile and commonly used feet, then providing step-by-step techniques for all the results you can achieve with these, along with tried and tested tricks for getting the most out of the machine, including uses you may not have known about"--
  • "Get the most out of your sewing machine by understanding its most important accessory--the myriad types of presser feet and their uses"--
