A sewing machine is probably the most expensive investment you will make in sewing. Having a machine that functions without making you frustrated is vital to enjoy sewing.

Solve Sewing Machine Problems

Butting to end of seam

Even a perfect sewing machine can have it's moments.... those moments when you want to scream in frustration. The good news is that the solution is usually simple and won't require taking the machine to a repair shop... so the first step... take a deep breath and analyze the issue.

Machine Embroidery

Machine Embroidery Hoops & Stabilizers

No one will argue that machine embroidery is beautiful, adds decorative detail to anything and the color possibilities are endless. It's also relatively new to the home sewing community. Learn all you can before you dive into this wonderful embellishing possibility.

Sergers or Overlock Machines

Serger Sewing and Cutting

A serger is not a regular sewing machine. This machine trims the fabric and sews the fabric in one step. A serger is more than just a seam finish machine and many different options are available. Be an educated consumer if you think you are in the market to buy yourself a serger.

Irons and Pressing Tools

Pressing a seam as it was sewn is the first step

Pressing is a very important part of the sewing process. Press as you sew for professional looking end results that you will be proud of.
