Do you have daydreams about artfully constructing your own wardrobe? Have you been thinking about purchasing your very own Janome sewing machine for the first time? When you are just starting out as a beginner sewer, everything that you need to learn can all seem very daunting. Luckily, Sew Vac Direct has your back. The following is our list of the top things that you should know before you sew:

  • Quality is key- It can be tempting to simply purchase the cheapest sewing machine that you find, and this might be okay for a while, but when you develop more skill, you will want to be able to utilize advanced techniques that may not be possible on your cheaper sewing machine. If you want to avoid having to purchase yet another sewing machine later on, it is a good idea to buy a higher quality machine to begin with.
  • Sew at your level- If you start with a pattern or a project that is too advanced for you, you could end up too frustrated and downtrodden to keep on trying. Start with a simple project that you can enjoy working on, and as your skills develop, you can start tackling more complicated projects.
  • Take it one step at a time- There are many skills that you will need to develop during your sewing career. If you try to tackle them all at once, it will be incredibly overwhelming. Practice one skill until you master it, and then start working on the next skill.
