So here is some info about my preciousessssss!
Funny when I was younger my Mum was a machinist and had and industrial machine and I was so scared of the thing and the grrraaah sound it made … (grraaah is now a word, I have decided) When she changed careers and no longer needed it she did ask me if I wanted it as she knew I wanted to be a designer…and I said No. Now I prefer to sew on my Industrial machine and only use my domestic if I have help and they are using the industrial. Hindsight is a funny thing.
It is a 4 thread and I mainly use it for constructing jersey pieces and neaten edges on unlined garments.
Pattern Cutting tables
An alternative option for those of you who do not have a lot of space. Get a MDF board and a couple of bricks, when working put them on top of your regular table and when your finished that table top could go behind a door, sofa etc and the bricks in a box in to a cupboard or on a shelve.
Did you find this information useful?
