I am just learning how to sew. I received a new Janome 7318 mechanical machine. It does not have a speed control and it seems to go sooooooo fast! Maybe I'll laugh at this post in a couple of weeks after some more practice but I'm wondering if there are any tricks to get it to go slower?! The pedal seems very "hot" as in it seems to go from 0 to 100 by barely pressing it down. Does anyone have any tricks or is this speed control just something that comes with experience? I'm wondering if there is a break-in time for the new pedal... Any advice would be greatly appreciated, I'm already hooked!
