Sewing Machine

ABOUT

Since Tomas Saint invented the first sewing machine in 1720, through to Walter Hunt 1830 who invented the “Lock Stitch”, sewing machine technology has improved immensely. Today there are lots of sewing machine varieties from your simple mechanical machine to the high end computerised sewing machines.

There is basically 3 main categories:
1. Industrial Sewing Machine - high speed, durable, a one function sewing machine
2. Semi-Industrial Sewing Machine - a faster more robust for the serious home user
3. Domestic Sewing Machine - specifically for the home user

In the domestic world we are seeing an increase of capabilities with electronic computerised controllers built into the sewing machine. Also we are seeing longer necks becoming more popular, allowing for a larger work area. Particularly for Quilters and Patchworkers where they require a large sewing area.

 

Embroidery Sewing Machine


EMBROIDERY MACHINES


Home embroidery machines are amazing today, what you can create, with Wi-Fi capabilities, full touch screen (like computers), they create the most intricate designs with a professional finish. It is hard to comprehend the depth and capabilities, and amount of options and types of craft that can be created on these stitching computerised machines. It is worth investigating as it will open your mind.

 

Overlocker Machine


SPECIALTY MACHINES


Overlockers and Cover Stitch machines are mainly single function machines. These multi-thread machines perform tasks such as joining fabric and stitching edges so they do not fray. Ideal for seams, hemming etc. Overlockers are also known as Serges.

 

Quilting Machine




 

LONG ARM SEWING MACHINES


Long Arm Sewing Machines are sewing machines that are built with long necks. This is to allow for a large work area, for applications such as stitching quilts together, and fancy decorative stitch patterns.
