The Sewing Machine Quick Guide will get you up to speed quickly on sewing machine basics. More than just a quick getting started book, complete information is presented so you will have a trusty reference guide long after you have mastered the basics. Step by step instructions show you how to use a sewing machine. Special attention is given to subjects like how to sew difficult fabrics and how to adjust the tension. Chapters on fabric, thread, stitches, needles and feet will help unlock your creativity. Most sewing books have one or two pages about sewing machines because they are about sewing projects and not about sewing machines. This is the first modern and complete book dedicated to sewing machine basics! Both vintage machines and the latest electronic machines are covered. Quilting machines and embroidery machines have their own chapters.
