Computerised or Electrical

What's Electrical?

While mechanical sewing machines were quite popular and could be found in many homes during the twentieth century, the 1970s brought about a great deal of change with the advent of the electrical sewing machines.

This type of sewing machine was one where an electrical impulse would shoot the needle and return it back to place in a rhythm matched by the feeding mechanism that pushes the cloth through the machine. This is used instead of the push and pull mechanism that is seen in mechanical machines.

This was an idea that was welcomed by professional tailors and hobbyists alike due to the fact that this machine was capable of a great deal more when it came to what patterns and what stitches could be created.

What's Computerised?

Compare the electrical machine to the use of a computerised sewing machine, which is the most advanced of all of the types of sewing machines. Like an electric sewing machine, there are the same basic motor and needle set up, but in addition to this, a computer sewing machine will also have a microprocessor.

This allows a computerized machine to essentially create patterns; when it comes to decorative stitch work and to embroidery, many people feel that the computer machine is far superior to the ones that go before. These machines are so advanced that they will stop for every color change in the pattern and in addition to this, they will trip the thread that was used.
