How many of us actually use all of the features? With garment sewing all you really need is a good straight stitch.
We get machines without exploring everything the machine is capable of. I've decided, no new machine until I explore everything my Singer will do. For this experiment, I'm starting off with the most basic of machines, a Vintage Singer 15-91. It has a straight stitch and back stitch, so it goes forward and backwards. Originally it came with a box of attachments.
For the next few blog posts, I'll be going back in time with my Singer Sewing Book, published in 1949.
I am most intrigued with the Fashion Stitches and Monogram techniques in the book, because between you and me it doesn't look possible to successfully create these stitches.
Here's to hoping my next post isn't about tears, best absorbing Kleenex brands and the frustrations of working with a Vintage Machine.
