Let’s face it - our sewing habits can often make or break a project. However, it’s the good habits that matter and the ones that enhance your results, while the bad ones can be improved over time.
Also, it is easy to believe that developing good habits when sewing requires massive efforts. However, it’s very simple - you need to be aware of how you sew rather than do it on auto-pilot. So, the goal is to take small steps, change one behavior for each new project and continue sewing with the new habit for every subsequent project.
But how do you know that you should invest in a better sewing machine?
Follow the signs listed below.
You don’t have a sewing machine
If you don’t have a machine for sewing and you love to sew, you definitely need to buy yourself one as the most important tool for this hobby or profession. However, make sure to choose a machine that fits your needs and budget for the best possible experience.
You have tons of ideas about fabrics
If you are full of ideas about sewing and fabrics, it’s time to invest in a better sewing machine and make them a reality. The truth is, your success is entirely up to you and the habits that you develop while sewing.
You are frustrated with your current sewing machine
Most of the times, the frustration with sewing comes from using a budget machine. While no one can afford a nice and expensive sewing machine, it is a tool that is absolutely worth it. The difference between a budget sewing machine and a premium one comes down to 2 things - premium machines are much more automatic and much more customizable.
You feel like what you are doing is repetitive
Sewing can be quite repetitive and with an extreme orientation to detail. However, the machine can also play a role in this and make sewing even more boring (than it is). If what you are doing is repetitive, it’s time to think about a new sewing machine.
You need to make more money
Last but not the least is the most obvious reason - to make more money. Even though buying a sewing machine is an investment, it is also an investment that can pay off in the long run. This means that you can capitalize on your skills and if you are creative enough, design your own line of products that you can sell online or in a store.
