Sewing For Beginners / How To Sewing Machine / How Learn Sew

This topic will be a kind of small sewing school for beginners, that is, how to learn to work on a sewing machine; that is, for those who only have the desire to learn to sew on sewing machines, for the beginning the desire is very important, the one who does not have it should not get involved in that work because disappointment could soon follow. So let's start in some order. First, in the given picture are some basic parts of a sewing machine:
The positions marked with ordinal numbers are: 1 lever for "forward-backward" sewing, 2 tension control of the upper thread, 3 movable board - cover, 4 needle plate, 5 bobbin, 6 bobin winder, 7 upper thread catcher-shuttle hook, 8 stitch length-steps regulator, 9 lower transport teeth (feed dog), 10 presser foot, 11 movable upper thread tensioner- "grasshopper", 12 wheel for manual starting ...etc

Another thing to do is, choose and buy a sewing machine, my recommendation is to buy a smaller machine for home use, the machine cabinet takes up more space and the portable machine is mobile and can be placed in a short time anywhere, it is up to you to choose, the offer on the market is large, which used machines to new ones, I do not recommend the industrial machine to beginners, simply, not to explain, it is not for beginners for many reasons. The industrial sewing machine is still for those with a slightly longer experience in sewing. The machine as in the picture above (the name is not so important) would be an optimal model. First you should try to work on the machine with some basic actions, lifting and lowering the presser foot from the material (read about the feet HERE), moving back and forth, placing the bobbin in the hook, winding the bobbin, removing and correctly placing the needle, pulling the thread into the machine ... .These topics are already covered in part, so take a look at the site archive. I recommend working without thread in the first days of exercise, it is not necessary in the initial steps, I even advise removing the needle, read about the precautionary measures HERE.

The next thing that could be done is the exercise of maintaining the direction when sewing, certainly the same thread is not needed to begin with. On a piece of canvas, you can also use hard paper, draw with chalk or pencil any lines, shapes that come to mind and try to follow them when working with the machine, I definitely mention CAUTION again and not too close to the needle. Use the pedal control to determine the lowest possible operating speed and increase the operating speed of the sewing machine with additional days and months. When following the line on the fabric, start with a short stitch and gradually increase it, combine a shorter stitch with a higher speed and vice versa. In any case, the shorter stitch should be used more often to begin with.
The stitch length regulator is in the picture above, position 8, usually its use is extremely simple. I used to learn on a machine with a foot drive, it was even more complicated ☺ After a while you can start sewing with thread and joining the material, let it be a simple flat stitch to begin with and over time other types of stitches can be used. . What can I say, the combinations in sewing and tailoring materials are countless, everything takes its time, persistence and want, don't expect results overnight, so good luck to the beginers ☺ I recommend beginners in sewing to browse the site archive or search at the bottom of the page, because the material is quite extensive and takes quite some time to study, there are certainly comments in which you can write your experiences and suggestions for students on sewing machines...
