Sewing with a machine requires a lot of patience and motivation, but the first time you make your own bag or blouse will give you great satisfaction. If you are wondering how to start sewing with a machine and you have such equipment at home or recently started to plan on buying it, remember about this fundamental matter – do not throw the manual away. This is the first crucial rule. After all, it is this machine that your most beautiful creations will be made with. Carefully examine all the advice within the manual, every part and its purpose, so your work is easy and enjoyable.

But before you sit down in front of your device and begin working, you should know the basics of sewing with the sewing machine. First, prepare a sheet of paper on which you can draw your first outfit. Think about what you want to sew. If you have a dream project in your head, put it down on paper first.
