Book Preface

Sewing Machines

BASIC MECHANICAL SEWING MACHINE

Simple, motorized machine that makes straight, zigzag, and usually a few decorative stitches. Stitch settings are controlled manually with knobs.

COMPUTERIZED SEWING MACHINE

Makes a wide variety of utility and decorative stitches. Stitch settings are controlled by buttons or a touch screen that is connected to an internal computer chip.

EMBROIDERY MACHINE

Stitches digitized embroidery design files. It can be a stand-alone machine or a module that works in combination with a computerized machine.

QUILTING MACHINE

Features a larger work area and more advanced feeding mechanisms than a standard computerized machine.

OVERLOCK MACHINE

Also known as a serger. Utilizes multiple threads to simultaneously stitch and finish seams. Features include a blade for trimming edges prior to stitching and a stitch finger for creating rolled hems.

Sewing Machine Feet

STANDARD FEET

FLANGED FEET

Feature thin, smooth blades called flanges that act as guides for stitching placement.

GROOVED FEET

Facilitate centered passage of trims and thick specialty stitches.

BUTTONHOLING AND BUTTON-SEWING FEET

Designed to automatically make identical buttonholes (see One-Step Buttonholes, page 68), and to attach buttons by machine (see Tip: Attaching Buttons by Machine, page 70).

HEMMING AND RUFFLING FEET

Direct one or more layers of fabric into the proper position for stitching.

NONSTICK AND WALKING FEET
