I hope someone with sewing experience can help me out.
I would like to be able to knit some fair isle sweaters with steeks in non-traditional yarns such as cotton blends. I will need to machine sew these steeks. Does anyone have any advice about what I need to look for in a sewing machine?
I know nothing about sewing machines. :whoosh:
I assume that the thickness of the yarn vs. fabrics will be an issue. I need to be able to sew up different thicknesses of yarn, but only straight steeks, no embroidery or anything. I am very confused by all the different machines out there. I haven’t yet found a sewing resource that covers this topic.
Could I get away with a handheld sewing machine?
