When I bought my new domestic sewing machine 9 years ago, I remember finding the instruction booklet quite a revelation. Prior to that, I had sewn on my mother's machine from the 1970s. After reading the instruction booklet, I was amazed at how much my new machine could do.
My machine is nothing super special. It has a few decorative stitches, one of which I use every day for Townmouse appliques. But with a few different needles or feet, it can do so much. This detail uses a wing needle.
Just the thing to add a bit of interest to a plain white shirt.
So if you've never paid much attention to your instruction booklet, you may be pleasantly surprised like I was.
What clever tricks have you been able to do with your sewing machine?
