Can I sew denim on my regular sewing machine?
Can you use a sewing machine on crochet?
A basic sewing machine will work for joining knit/crochet items as long as it has the capability of making an adjustable zig-zag stitch. It helps if you can adjust the pressure on the presser foot of your sewing machine. That can be really helpful with some thicker knit/crochet yarns.
