Pink Silk Scarf ro…

Anyone know how to stitch silk fabric without getting the little ruffles?

Use a smaller needle and a shorter stitch length!

Thanks, I'll try that

I'm in the same boat. Used to hand sew a lot for simple things or to mend pants. I'm trying to learn to sew but it's so daunting. There are so many things to know, like what types of stich to use with a certain types of fabric and things like that. There's all these trade secrets and as a newbie trying to break into the sewing world without any help it's quite overwhelming trying to learn it on my own. Guess I should just try to find a good YouTuber.

Wouldn't a longer stitch length be better?

I can hand sew but I really want a machine.
Advice for finding a good machine or any recs? Budget can be anything but ideally as low as possible

Also a tip for finding cheaper fabric is to look in thrift stores, sometimes you can get really lucky and find oodles of fabric for like 10$. Happened to me but I still don't know what to do with the fabric :/ It has a lovely floral pattern but I don't really know what it could do well as.
