2. Treadle Sewing Machine

The opposite of Hand Operated Sewing machine! No, Iโ€™m not talking about speed, I mean, of course, it is faster than hand-operated but slower than an electric machine. I am saying that they are operated by feet! Thatโ€™s right! These machines are placed on a stand that has a treadle, where you place your feet. The forward and backward movement of the feet helps to run the machine. As youโ€™re using your feet, your hands are free to handle fabrics. The balance of the wheel is attached to the treadle with a belt.

As you can operate it with a thick layer, you can sew woolen, knitted fabrics. The stitches will come out of high quality, balanced. But the disadvantage is the high cost of the industrial sewing machine. Again, Itโ€™s industrial, so why not it will be highly-priced? After all, it is worth the price.

7. Mini Sewing Machine

8. Overlock Sewing Machine

Overlock machines have an inbuilt cutter to cut the uneven edges of the fabric. Overlock machines make loops of stitches over the fabric edges. Its pattern depends on the number of threads. Single thread overlock is of course very weak. More the threads stronger the stitches are. the width and length of the stitch can be customized by the user.
