We've partnered with Bill's Sewing Machine Company to help you maximize productivity in five how-to sewing videos. Watch as our longtime partner and friend, industrial sewing mechanic Johnny Bentley, guides you through the basics.
This video series covers helpful tips and best practices for industrial sewing machine users so they can maximize productivity across their machine’s lifetime. While demonstrations in the videos are on a JUKI LU-1508NH Extra Heavy Duty sewing machine, what is shown will translate for many industrial sewing machines including long arm sewing machines and brands like Consew, Janome, Pfaff, Yamata, Brother sewing machines, and others. These videos can also be of help to users of quilting machines, embroidery machines, lockstitch sewing machines, and sergers.
Before we get started, a few basic tips: Make sure you're familiar with your machine manual. Always use good quality thread that's right for your project. Know what type of needle you need as well as what needle size is the correct size for your project.
Here's how to care for your machine and identify and address common sewing machine problems. For additional guidance, canvas sewing basics, and professional tricks of the trade, view our comprehensive Sewing Guide.
