Choosing Your Sewing Accessories – the Bells and Whistles
Perhaps one of the most important things to keep in mind, is that any sewing accessories or software, must be made for your model machine—or it must be compatible with it.
In other words, you don’t necessarily have to purchase Brother sewing accessories for a Brother machine, but anything generic that you use with your machine, must fit your machine, and work with it.
In addition, you can make your sewing more efficient by organizing your work space. You don’t have to buy specialized cabinets or tables (although that’s fine, if you want to). If money is tight, you can easily use furnishings that you already have, or some that you purchase at yard sales, through Craigslist or at flea markets.
When outfitting your sewing corner or room, you don’t have to go overboard and buy everything available, but don’t cut yourself short, either.
Make sure that you have taken care of all your needs. Do buy the sewing accessories that you need. That way, sewing will be a pleasure—instead of a frustrating experience!
