There are tons of reasons people use sewing machines. Just because you’re not the “crafty” type – doesn’t mean a sewing machine can’t become a useful appliance in your home. Here a just a few situations where owning a sewing machine can save you time and money.
I’m short. Every pair of pants I purchase are too long and require hemming. Blind hemming is an absolutely invaluable feature on Janome Shop at Home Sewing Machines. Every Juno model has the blind hem stitch. Go ahead and save your household money year over year by hemming your family’s pants at home. Janome Juno machines also have a blind hem bonus! They all have a “stretch” blind hem stitch – now you can hem stretchy yoga pants!
Curtains or drapes are rarely the proper length. Instead of mucking around with that iron on tape or giving this task to your dry-cleaners – you can do it yourself! Altering curtains to the proper length on your Janome Juno sewing machine is a quick and simple project – even for beginners!
I LOVE sewing pillows! They are quick and easy to make, very affordable and a very fantastic way to change up a room in your home.
It’s very difficult to find the exact placemats or other table linens to match your decor. Maybe your dining room table is an odd size – impossible to find table clothes that fit. Just imagine being able to make the perfect table cloth, napkins or table runner yourself! Impress guests – and even impress yourself by creating your own unique table settings for holidays and special occasions.
You may not need one right now, but someday, someone will need a costume. Be ready.
Clothing Repairs and Alterations
It happens – everyday wear and tear on your favourite clothes. Most clothing repairs can be done at home – saving you money by making sure garments can last. Maybe you found that perfect dress that just needs a little tweaking? Basic clothing alterations can also save you money and it’s so rewarding to finally have clothes fit you right!
Hobbies & Crafts
Ok maybe this reason is a no brainer, but not everyone is a born quilter, sewer or crafter. I truly believe that every person needs a hobby – or something they can be passionate about – something “just for them”. Maybe sewing is the perfect hobby for you and you don’t even know it yet???
Still think you don’t need a sewing machine?
