Title
[ ]Learn to Sew a Straight Seam
Introduction
[ ]This guide will show you the most basic of seams, the [[Sewing Glossary#Section_Seam|straight seam]]. If this is your first sewing experience, practice on scraps of fabric. Like any skill, sewing requires practice—so take your time! The key is to work carefully and patiently. Sewing machines vary widely and may have different settings. This guide shows the process for a Bernina 830, but the process will be similar for most machines. Refer to your sewing machine manual for information on specific settings and functions. In this guide we are using contrasting thread for visibility. When it comes time to do your actual project, you'll want to use thread that matches the color of your fabric.
