Make sure you know how to stretch the thread on the machine, how to change needles, how to make bobbins, how to set stitches, and how to work with the included feet. The precise operation of your machine depends on the model and is therefore difficult to explain in one way. We have written an article that explains the basic principles of the sewing machine in more detail, but it is best to enter the type number and brand of your sewing machine for example on YouTube.
If this is not in your model, you can ask for the best advice in the store where you bought the machine and search for similar machines. Also, don’t forget to just practice a little on a piece of fabric to see and feel how your sewing machine works and what the different options do. The Sewing thread happens to be important there.
Stitching, Seams And Hems
Sewing is done by attaching fabrics to each other using specific stitches with the correct needle and thread. Which type of stitch you choose affects your result and some stitches are not suitable for certain fabrics. You also call this stitching the fabric together. However, here are a few things to consider because if you just stick things together at random places, you will soon see that the result is not always nice or that you need to pay some extra attention to some places. We often talk about seams and seams here.
There are certain ways to choke on these places and with different effects. You have things like a blind hem, reinforced seams and much more. If you want well-finished garments that fit well, it is important to pay attention to your seams and hems. Depending on the result that you want to achieve, you must therefore make the right choice here. Knowing more?

Ruffles, Wrinkles And Pleats
Ruffles, wrinkles, and pleats are all three techniques that make the fabric fall differently. For example, you need pleats to get a nice Japanese school skirt, and with ruffles (in English ruffles) you can put an extra decoration on the bottom of your skirt or get a different effect in your dress or shirt. For all these things there are different techniques to achieve the effect and to what extent,for example, there are various types of pleats depending on the final look that you want.
None of these things are really hard to do, although they sometimes require a good deal of patience and, in the case of folds, an eye for detail, because you want all folds to be the same size and size. But you can read more about that in the article about ruffles, wrinkles, and pleats.
Zippers And Buttonholes
Unless you make a garment that consists entirely of stretchy fabric, chances are that you will have to start working with buttonholes and zippers. With this you ensure that you can still put on the clothes, not unimportant. Making a buttonhole is, depending on your sewing machine, often very simple. Simply choose the button foot and the correct setting on the sewing machine and it will do the rest, or measure the button, mark on the fabric and sew manually.
