What do the French know about finding the best home sewing machine?

By: Elmo Bouteiller

There’s a reason why France has been the capital of global fashion for hundreds of years. In fact, according to many scholars and historians, France first became the fashion capital of the globe starting with the reign of Louis XIV.

If you’ve ever done any research on Louis XIV, you would know why. The man was a legend.  It doesn’t even matter whether you did extensive research on him. You did not have to right some sort of term paper or thesis paper on it for high school or college to appreciate his magnitude.

According to legend, Europe started wearing wigs when Louis XIV for some reason shaved his head bald and decided to wear a wig for a year. People saw that and they copied it regardless of whether they’re balding or not. The man simply set global fashion.

That’s how powerful France was to the fashion scene. Fast forward to today, labels like Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and others still highlight the fact that France remains a power player in the world of global fashion.

Of course, it is no longer the center. This much is true. New York is the new fashion center. Still, if you are looking for the very best in fashion, or if you are really looking to take your fashion standards to a much higher level, it’s always a good idea to consult with the French. It’s always a good idea to adopt some sort of French sensibility.

This is why if you are in the market for some sort of sewing machine for home purposes, you need to understand what French designers would look for. In fact, I would argue that the definition of the best home sewing machine must include the French sensibility.

French designers focus not on volume or productivity but they focus on quality. They focus on tight stitches. They focus on the right fit. So if you’re able to wrap your mind around these considerations, chances are quite good that you will level up your selection criteria.

Don’t be surprised if the machine that you end up selecting ends up over performing because you used the right standards. Funny how that works, right?

While most people want the most latitude when it comes to decisions, they often mistake freedom for the license to be sloppy. Let me tell you, as much as you might resist the idea, there is such a thing as a right way and wrong way to do things. This was true in the distant past and it is true in the here and now. Most people have a problem with this but all their inconvenience with this idea won’t make the truth behind the idea go away. This will continue to remain true a long long time from now.
