Description
The ultimate owner's manual for avid sewers Unleash the hidden power of the sewing machine and serger that you already own. Secrets for Successful Sewing shows you how to get the most from your machines-- regardless of their brand or age. From Battenberg lace and beading to serger heirloom techniques, shirring, and decorative zipper insertions, you'll find a vast array of unique techniques to try on your garments. Step-by-step illustrations and color photographs make the instructions perfectly clear. * Stitch elegant embellishments and unlimited decorative touches * "Fool" your machine into doing the stitches and techniques that you thought could only be done by high-end machines * Learn tricks and techniques that aren't in your owner's manuals * Turn to easy-to-use tables for guidance on specialty threads, needles, and presser feet * Find out what settings, tools, and presser feet you need before you start stitching * Design your own stitches, even if your machine can do little more than a zigzag * Create traditionally hand-stitched work like Battenberg lace, entredeux, fagoting, and lace insertion in half the time * Use your chain, cover, flatlock, overlock, and rolled-edge stitches in ways you never imagined possible
