Ever since I started Craft Passion, I have been wanting to do some basic knowledge on sewing. Today I’m honored to have Toyota Home Sewing to guest post in Craft Passion to introduce the basic sewing foot.
There are vast varieties of sewing machine foot in today’s sewing technology that make sewing easy and convenient. Among the basic and the most common use are buttonhole, zipper, zigzag, straight stitch, embroidery or darning and blind hem foot. Other specialty foot include walking foot, piecing foot, roll hemming foot, ruffle foot, pin tuck foot, cording foot, pearl & sequin foot, concealed zipper foot, binding foot etc…. Get the basic sewing foot introduction & some sewing tips after this jump.
Toyota sewing machine has been one of the longest sewing machines I’ve ever used before I bought my recent sewing machine. In the early 1990’s, my sister bought her first electric Toyota sewing machine which changed the whole sewing experience in the family. It is so easy to use compare to the antique foot paddle type, fast and neat, not to mention the built-in embroidery pattern available to make embellishment easy & beautiful. That time, my mom still preferred her old sewing machine because she thinks that the electrical one is too fast for her handicapped eye. With my passion in sewing and handicraft, I became the most frequent user of this sewing machine. Till today, it is still in working condition, with my mom, yes, the one who complaint that it is too fast but now she is the one who is using it for mending clothes and some simple sewing.
