I rarely have the need to sew at a snail's pace, just on the small stuff. My amateurism manifests itself in the fact that I still need 2 hands to guide the material around when doing small, intricate stuff, so it's tough to hand-crank the machine and guide the material around odd shapes while maintaining a consistent offset from the edge or other stitch lines. I was well and often justified in my fear of having the machine take off across the fabric when I only wanted to put 3 or 4 stitches in on a tight turn.
I think there was a comparison between learning to sew at a very low setting and learning how to drive a car at 2 MPH in an earlier post, but the way I see it, using that clutch motor was like learning how to drive a car and having Shirley Muldowney
as your driving instructor.
