I know, I know you think I mean do you finish garments quickly! But nope not talking about that.
I'm asking, "Do you run your sewing machine on the fastest setting?" See my sewing machine has a slow, medium and fast setting on it. I've set mine to sew almost as fast as my machine can go. I've sewn with it on this setting for the last 3-4 years.
Just recently I moved it back to the medium setting. I've started sewing slower to get more control over my projects as they go under the needle. I'd never thought about it before. I just wanted to sew as fast as my machine would go to get to the end of the project. However, when I was applying the lace on my Black Ponte Jacket, I had to slow down to be more accurate.
By slowing down I noticed that I gained so much more control over my project and my sewing machine. It made me wonder why was I speeding through garments before? Didn't I realize the power of accuracy I was giving up?
So here's the "Question of the Day?" Is your machine set at it's fastest sewing speed? If not, what setting is it set at? And if you sew really fast, are you accurate? Do you feel like you could be more accurate if you changed your sewing machine setting?
Me, I've changed the setting on my sewing machine. I've slowed down. I've gained some more control and I'm seeing better results in my finished garments.
Talk back to me...cause I'm really interested!
...as always more later!
