A sewing machine can help save you money on clothing alterations and repairs. Use it to hem pants, mend a tear or even create a new outfit from scratch. Even if you’re new to sewing, Brother sewing machines are easy to master, and many come with instructional DVDs.
Sewing Machine Features
With a Brother sewing and embroidery machine, even big projects will take only a fraction of the time that they would by hand. Some machines can do dozens, if not hundreds, of different types of stitches. Look for models with built-in stitch designs. Today’s computerized sewing machines come pre-set with designs you can use at the press of a button. For example, stitch your child’s favorite Disney character onto a pillowcase in no time. You can also download patterns from the web to a USB stick and plug it in for instant use.
Many new sewing machine users are worried about threading. Today’s machines take away the frustrating task of threading the needle. A Brother sewing machine with automatic needle threader makes the process hassle-free.
A new Brother sewing machine can open up the possibilities to creative projects. Here are some to try:
• Monogramming. Monogram shirts, backpacks or towels at home. Add a personalized touch to your own linens, or turn a simple item into a customized gift.
• Embroidering. This is a beautiful way to add embellishment to clothes and blankets. A Brother embroidery machine can help you add this special touch.
• Quilting. Use patches of your favorite old clothes, blankets or fabric swatches to make a meaningful quit. A Brother quilting machine includes the stitches you’ll need to make it come together.
• Reupholstering. Breathe new life into antique or vintage furniture with modern fabric. Use a sewing machine to stitch the pattern together then tack the material onto the furniture.
For tight spaces, choose a small sewing machine that you can tuck away in a linen closet. If you have a dedicated sewing room, consider a larger model and place it on a sewing table.
