Question: Which sewing machine has the best straight stitch?

What can a straight stitch be used for?

The Straight Stitch is the basic stitch that is used for sewing. The most common use for a straight stitch is to sew two pieces of fabric together. The Straight Stitch can also be sewn a few stitches in reverse at the beginning and end of a seam to secure the seam ends.

Why are my seams not straight?

Since the needle is constantly moving, you will not sew straight if you watch it as you stitch. The seam guide does not move so it’s much better to focus there as your fabric moves along, resulting in much straighter seams.

Can you sew with only straight stitch?

Some easy first projects to try that only require straight stitching are things like drawstring bags, cushion covers and pillowslips. Here are some links to projects to get you started. I’ve made sure I’ve included a pincushion project because, as I said in Setting Yourself Up to Sew, they are a good first project!
