Read all the instructions before starting your project, and make sure you have everything you need at hand.
A little maintenance goes a long way. Be sure to perform basic care tasks on your sewing machine. Things like dusting the machine and having a sharp needle can make all the difference. Most sewing machine manufacturers recommend a yearly service to keep it running in perfect order.
Sharp cutting tools are very important. Not only will they cut the fabric nicely they’ll also save your lower back, elbows and wrists.
