One of the most important learning centers, for those wishing to learn to sew, is in a sewing outlet such as Capital Sew and Quilt. Such an establishment has the latest in fabrics, machines and knowledge regarding all types of sewing. Our technicians are highly trained and more than willing to offer advice as well as guidance regarding various machines available.
Quilting is a good example of the advancement in the sewing world. At one time everything was done by hand and took months to complete. Today, features such as an LCD Touch Screen Display, Stitch and Speed Control, Needle Positioning, Built-in Bobbin Winder, Capacity Size Bobbins and hundreds of other innovations which allow the home sewer to construct quilts in less than half the time required by the old method of quilt making.
An example of this is the Juki TL-2200QVP, a specialized machine which has a 10-foot quilting frame 35” wide and has 18 inches of throat space between the machine arm and needle. This is only one of the many excellent quilting machines available that allow the operator to adjust the height and operation of the machine, for comfort, while sewing.
As a result, many people have turned their love of quilt making into a regular business and sell online, at store outlets and other locations. Consumers have found these quilts to be of much better quality than those constructed by factories that produce in bulk.
Embroidery is another area that has come into its own. New embroidery machines have much to offer and are a great advantage over the old standard sewing machine one needle procedure. In comparison, they offer the production of a multi-color design without having to continually re-thread the needle.
The modern embroidery machine offers an LCD touchscreen display which allows you to view and position stitches prior to applying a particular design. Some newer models even have USB ports which are designed to fit a laptop or thumb drive. Another feature on some machines is multiple sewing heads which allow you to sew special fabric effects such as chain stitch, satin stitch, applique and so forth.
Let us not forget straight sewing machines. These machines have also improved over the years offering a Stitch Selection Chart which allows you to control your stitch width and length, needle position and presser foot settings at all times.
In addition, they are specially designed with the comfort of the user in mind. This type of machine allows you to make items, such as clothing, drapes, and hundreds of other things which are not only for practical purposes but are excellent for gifts as well.
Fabrics are a very important part of any sewing project. With the hundreds of types available, it is important to choose a material that will be suitable for your project. This is why it is important to consult with someone who is knowledgeable in the field and will be able to actually demonstrate how to obtain the desired result of your sewing project.
