    Sewing Equipment
    Here you will find tips specifically about using your sewing machine and sewing tools to their best potential. These are tips I wish I had known sooner; things I have learned from trial and error, picked up from other sewers/designers, as well as sewing machine manuals. Your sewing machine manual (if you have one) may be your best friend so don't be afraid to dive into yours!




    Garment Construction Prep
    There are many processes in the clothing construction process that do not involve the sewing machine. This includes steps such as reading your pattern, cutting out your pattern, pre-washing your fabric, orienting your fabric "on-grain", placing your pattern on your fabric properly, blocking your fabric. These steps are often easy to gloss over or simply not executed as you don't know they exist. These steps are some of the most important when sewing your clothing when looking to produce a high quality garment.
