coletterie industrial sewing tips 15 At Home Tips from Industrial Sewing
Want to get the professional finish of a garment sewn on an industrial sewing machine, but without replacing your grandmother’s old Singer?

I like to sew. I call it my “Zen.” It relaxes me. But like everyone, I like to get done quickly and create a garment that fits and looks professionally made.

That’s what sewing with an industrial machine can do for you. They can sew faster. Industrial machines sew up to 6500 stitches per minute. A home sewing machine sews 250 to 1000. A knee lift keeps your hands free to work the fabric. The needle makes a crisp stitch for a clean finished look.

But there are many other techniques from the industry you can use to improve your sewing and the look of your garments without buying the machine.

Learn the tricks of the trade that keep the garment industry humming along at top speed with this list of 15 Things Home Sewers Can Learn from Industrial Sewing on The Coletterie.
