With a qual­ity sewing ma­chine

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Outdoor Decorating -

at the ready, it’s easy to get hooked on dec­o­rat­ing in­doors as well as out! Look around, you’ll see the op­por­tu­ni­ties – scat­ter cush­ions for your sofa, a de­light­ful cloth for your ta­ble, new cur­tains and win­dow cover­ings. And that’s just for starters. New sewing ma­chines come loaded with help­ful time savers such as au­to­matic nee­dle thread­ing. Yes please! And, at the push of a but­ton, you can ad­just your stitch for a new fabric or re­verse the stitch­ing to se­cure it. The stan­dard foot in­cluded in your ma­chine is ideal for straight stitch­ing hems and zigzag­ging fabric edges to pre­vent fray­ing. As for the zip­per foot, it’s in­dis­pens­able to get close to the edge of zip­per teeth.
