I have a home machine, do I need to purchase another machine?
I have a home sewing machine that I purchased last November. I am learning to use it, but I am very slow because I don’t know where to begin. I want to do my own bag designs (not to become a bag maker, but just for myself). I plan on making some leather bags, some like the Chloe box bag, the Hermes Birkin bag, etc. Do I need to get another machine for this? If so, would you mind giving me some suggestions and places to purchase?
Yes, you will need an industrial walking foot machine a consew 206rb-5 is a good machine I use. You should try and find a used one, they are cheaper and if you can buy locally for a sewing machine shop so that you have a place to repair the machine if it needs adjustments in the future.
I can't draw a straight line, what would a person do to create a pattern?
I can’t draw, but I have gotten better, I design from my mind, once you understand how something is made, you can design in your mind. All ideas start in your mind you don’t have to draw, it’s good to put down your ideas to remember, but the design is in your mind.
At HMDH Academy you create your own designs from lesson one, you create the pattern and you make it, your designs.
Will we learn about different what types of needles and thread to use with which kind of fabric?
Do you need any previous sewing skills?
