Sewing Helps for a better sew experience #HACKS #SEW







1. Keep your needle pressed down into your machine

2. Buy cone thread if you sew a lot or use a coffee mug.

3. use rocks to hold your fabric down vs/pinning a lot faster to cut - flat smooth rocks are best.

4. use a glue stick to thread your needle in a pinch

5. hot glue your measuring tape to your table if you sew a lot.

6. zig zag your hems then roll and hem.

7. If you are new make friends with seasoned sewers for questions you run into.

8.  Buy a extra cheap sewing machine so you won't ever have to stop sewing!

9. Take apart old clothing you are done with and use for patterns.

10.  Get a magnet to pick up any lost needles that may wander.

11. use clear nail polish on top of bottons to make them last longer.

12. Use a chop stick to help you turn tight pieces inside or rightside out.

13. No matter how long you have been sewing read your entire machine manual and keep it handy - read it again periodically as a refresher. Know it like the back of your hand.

14. Change your machine needle frequently.

15. Press while you go to get that professional look.

Tention help for your sewing machine #SEWING #SEWINGMACHINE


Image result for sewing tension


Here is a tip to help you to get to the best Tension on your sewing machine-

When threading your machine the higher number turning clockwise - the discs  move closer together which increases the amount of pressure. Turn to a lower number - counter clockwise will make the discx move apart decreasing the pressure. If you use a thicker thread and don't reset the dial this will increase the pressure and make the upper thread flow to decrease, if you have a newer machine that will make the authomatic  upper-tension adjustments. The bobbin tension is not self-adjusting and will need to be done manually to match.

Travel tip. Sew a few stitches on a towel and keep your toiletry dry. A fun gift idea, too. DIY.
