1. 1 Introduction: Hi, my name is Mike Lee. I welcome you all to the session about solving this. Bach didn't split history of garment construction, invention of solving mission, bots off solving mission. And how to practice ceiling. 2. 2 History of Garment Construction: History of garment construction in the history, clotting was often draped or tide. However, simple needles made out of animal bone provide evidences of Swain, ladder and far garments from at least 30 thousand years ago. According to archaeologists and anthropologists, the earliest clotting probably consist of leaves, grass far and later. During the Middle Ages, clotting had been regarded as a means of canceling the body in the medieval period. So easily constructed from a single piece or two of glory or shorten and tighten and eventually got beast and spent together in attempt to bring into prominence that cantos of human fall. This was the birth of tailoring and infact or fashion. The knowledge and odd of tailoring, of cutting and still win the glut. The basic aspects of constructing Claude from a pact on gets developed in a row. Gloating slowly and gradually developed in Europe between 1214 centuries, soon, the Carter, one who makes baghdad and tailor, the one who does the swooning, join other craftsmen as important members of the community? The Oxford English dictionaries first reference to the word Taylor gives the specific date off to our 97. 3. 3 Invention of Sewing machine: Inventional sewing machine? No, it is. Sewing machine is considered as one of the useful devices in every home. Suing missions or available commercially in different models, such as domestic model, Taylor model, and industrial model, portable and electronic model. These may be operated by hand, turtle order electric model. Let's see the inventional sewing machine. The invention of sewing mission was the combined ideas and one of many inventors. In 1790, the first patent was given to Thomas Saint and English men for a mission that sued on letter. In 1832, Waldo hunt developed ambition, hinted shop in New York City. He incorporated to new ideas David I pointer, needle under locking stitch. In 1845, alias hallway and apprentice watchmaker from both dark made us solving machine. That carta COPD, I pointed needle and an under threat shuttle. This mission could sue to fulfill stitches per minute. This was five times as fast as the fastest hands. In 1846, Isaac Singer and American produced a sewing machine that had a striped needle and good. See you continuously. 4. 4 Parts of Sewing machine: Butts off sewing machine. But some functions of treadle sewing machine. Spoiled pin holes, those ball of thread. Thread guides this whole the thread and position from this bowl to the needle. Tension desk. This is a simple mechanism to concave down or put together with the convex sides facing each other. The thread passes between the two. The tension of the thread, our gesture by a spring. And then not, which decreases or increases the pressure of the desk. Take up lever at the outside end of those liver, there is a small hole through which the thread passes the liver most down to loosen that DOP dread while does which is being formed. Then it moves up and bolster loop of thread tied to complete the stitch. Needle. But this is a steel rod which holds the needle are Guanyin with the help of a clump bobbing case. This moves into position. The gas that DOP dread and formed the stitch as the needle as lowered into the bombing chamber. Presser food. This is attached to the oppressor bar and it holds the god formally in position. Men lowered, presser, foot, lifter. This is a liver attached or depressive bar for rising and lowering the presser foot. Stitch regulator. This controls the length of the stitch. Some regulators can be set. Those teaching rivers. Bobbing, Winder. This facilitates the winding of thread on the bomb when some are made to stop automatically when the ball minuss full. Fly Vi. When this was made to re-watch, it walks the mechanism of Domitian. Clutch, our dumps grew. This is in the center of the fly wheel and it engages, and this engages the stitching mechanism. Slight blade. This is a rectangular plate which can be slit, open, door Rameau or Putin, the bobbing case. Needle plate or throat blade. This is a semicircular plate with the hole to allow the needle to pass through it. Fried dough. This council store for effect of deep frittered below the needle played. It helps to move the clock forward while filming. Phase plate. This is a cover which when remote, gives access to the oiling points on needle bark reservoir and Jacob lever. Spool pin for bombing minding. Spool of thread has placed on this are the diamonds winding the bobbing. 5. 5 Operating a Sewing machine: In this session, we're going to know about operating the mission and how to practice solving. An electric sewing machine is operated by 10x or food control of an electric motor. A little practice as required to control the pressure needed to operate the mission at any desired speed. But that even regular rhythm. Before starts you When we must learn about stitching along lines, selection of threat and needle winding the bobbin on Deterding, doped reading, drawing the bobbin thread when on fabric and how to foster learning that read ends. Stitching along lines. First, we have to tighten the thumbscrew. And without dreading the mission. Lower depressor, food, and practice teaching on paper along lines of radius shapes, straight line, curved line, broken lines, and lines with corners. Handle. You can control the mission reasonably well. To turn corners, stop, but the needle down at the exact corner, rice depressor food and turn the paper to the desired position, leaving the needle in. Then lower the pressure food again and stitch. Selection of thread and made it above x dash can be obtained only when the thread as selector to suit the material to be stitched. And the needle is of the correct size. For stitching on delicate, thin fabrics. Use fine thread, fine needle. For heavy fabrics. Needles and thread sign should be larger. Winding the bombing, bombings wine differently on the various missions. But generally, the threadless was placed on us bullpen located below the flywheel and then drawn through that thread guide neo Dust Bowl pin. Now with your hand, wind the end of the thread on the bobbing in clockwise direction and place it on the windup. Dawn the bobbing on the Winder until the pin like projection on the Winder fits in Buddha's lot on the bobbin. Thus holding bombing in place. Then press the Winder lever down until the rubber ring. That's just a hub of the flight evening. And as hell dare lose under dumps, grew, and run the mission. Holding the thread in loosely, makes sure that the thread winds on the boatman evenly and that you do not fail. The bobbing do full. The most. In most missions, the winding will stop automatically when the Bowman is around three-fourths full. Under threading in each bobbing gaze that is so slanting slot under spring. Insert the bombing in to the bobbin keys so that the thread comes around double beam and don'ts Back to lie in the slot. Now guide the thread through the slot and below the spring. And boy, loud and length of threat. Best detention on the bombing trend. By pooling the threat. And gently, there should be slight but noticeable tension and bombing should stay firmly in place. Lever thread in three or four inches long extending from the bobbin case. Now open this light plate. Lift the catch of the bobbing case with your thumb and forefinger and insert double ring is into the mission. Blows those light blade. Dop threading rice that take-up lever though its highest point before you start reading, the spool of thread as fast blazed on this bull pain on top of the mission head and thread and as past through our threat guy to the attention mechanism. After joining that thread between the tension disks and through the take-up spring past the end of the thread, through the hole in the take-up lever from the side nearest the ancient desk. Now thread that reminding guide, which leads to the needle and insert that read into the needle from the site on which the last day appeals. Drawing the bobbin thread runs the take-up liver to its highest point, holding the end of the doped red. Your left hand slowly, don't the fly way around once so that the needle goes down and then comes up due its highest position. Bull the end of the needle thread. Then a bobbing dread loop will appear through the needle hole, Pulled the loop to bring the end of the boatman tread out. Ceiling on fabric, rice depressor, food, and don't the fly wheel so dark that take-up lever is at its highest point, Boulder, upper and under threat straight back under the presser food to prevent them from becoming naught dot at the beginning of the stitching line, place the clock to be stitched under the presser foot with the similar ones to dust right off the needle and the rest of the material to the left. Now Dawn the real and the, the needle and dose the fabric at the exact starting point and then load the presser foot. Start Domitian's globally guiding the material gently with both your hands and then gradually increase the speed of the stitching. Do not pull down material forward or backward, but hold up do layers. Slightly dark darn foam at the back. And friend of Presser food. Why? When you are nearing the end of the stitching line, stitch slowly with right-hand on Fly Me and left hand on walk. Stopped the mission in time. So that you do not, you beyond though, do not have the take-up lever at its highest point. To avoid an threading. The needle when beginning to stitch, again, ranks depressor food and bolded material straight back, but threads under the presser foot to avoid an threading the needle when beginning to stitch. Again. If the presser foot and pull the material right back with threads under the presser foot to avoid bending the needle. Got the threads on the threat Carter or with scissors, leaves several inches of dread extending from the mission to prevent unthreatening. Faster than that read ent does necessary to foster the threads at the ends of the stitching lines which are not to be crossed later. Stitch deals that determination point. But the needle in the plot then lift the presser foot and stitch back a short distance along the scene before cutting the thread. This is called the Voting. If your mission can do reverse touching, there is no need to do be voting. You can simply set the stitch regulator for reverse ditching, stitch back a short distance and then got the dreads. After you have reached the end of the stitching line, bull that lot back and got the threats leaving a length of about five or six inches extending from the glut.
