Global Sewing Machine

Just before you sit down to begin all those back to school and holiday sewing machine projects, it is a good time to take a moment to do some rountine maintenance on your sewing machine. If your like me, I normally don't think to do anything with the machine other that sew with it until it decides not to work properly.

The easiest thing to do to keep your  running smoothly is do some cleaning. The bobbin area and the area around the feed dogs usually get clogged up with lint and need to be cleaned at least once every 3 months.

The sewing guide sheet that come in every pattern also gives accurate and detailed instructions for assembling, sewing, and finishing details for your specific garment and view. Following this set-by-step guide even if you think you're a pro will eliminate needless errors in construction.

It is even a good idea to again highlight the particular view you are making and noting where its specific sewing instructions start. By checking off each step as it is completed makes it easier to put down a project and start back up on it at a later time. Interuptions do happen.

Many modern sewing machines contain microprocessors, which enable the selection of a wide range of different stitching patterns. Computer-controlled machines are now also available, with programmes which allow the user to create their own embroidery patterns on screen. The machine will automatically reproduce these designs. Another type of machine in wide use, particularly in industry, is the overlocker. This was first developed in the late 19th century and is able to cut, sew, and neaten seams in one operation.
