If you’re like me, you have a limited amount of time for sewing, and even though you’d like to spend every waking second working on your latest projects, it’s just not possible. So you want to maximize the time you have to sew by using tools that increase your efficiency and make everything easier.
In this post, I’ll show you all of the sewing tools that I use to make life easier, so you can spend more time sewing and less time on prep work.
I used to think that sergers were super expensive machines that I’d never be able to afford. But then I snagged a cheap Singer ProFinish serger, and I don’t know how I ever lived without it. Sometimes it feels like I use my serger more than my sewing machine. It’s a worthwhile investment that will save you time, energy, and frustrating when sewing. Plus, your clothes will last longer because the edges are all professionally finished. I’ve had my serger for over a year now, and I’m still thrilled with it.
A year ago, I bought this Singer Fashion Mate 7256. It was a daily deal on Amazon for $99, and it was a bit of an impulse buy. The reviews on Amazon seemed fairly good, and I didn’t know enough about sewing machines at that point to have strong feelings about the features I wanted or didn’t want.
In this post, I’ll show you how to get your sewing machine or serger cleaner than it has ever been by using mini vacuum attachments. My machines looked like they came right out of the factory after cleaning!
