As we all have known and have experienced, good wefts are hard to find and when you do find good wefts (or a good wefter) consistency in great results are not always what we get. I have a Brother's Project Runway Edition sewing machine. I sew clothes in it, and one day when I got some bulk hair, I thought, "Hey, what if I sew my own wefts?!" I tried, but definitely failed. I have been studying different wefts from vendors, and oddly, I never noticed how many of them have different sewing techniques; some of the sewing patterns are very different. I have been looking at youtube videos (which there are not many) and strangely, the ones that give specific details are not in English Cry:


I noticed that many use industrial sewing machines, and since I've never seen one personally, I don't know if the plates (the part that you slide the clothes/hair across that feeds the bottom thread) differ from regular sewing machines. I don't think this would matter though because this girl uses a regular sewing machine:

But I will say that her technique is obviously different. Thoughts, input, questions and suggestions are openly welcome. I want us to learn this thing together, so we can stop wasting our money on inconsistent wefters as well as saving money. Think about it: You can spend $100-200 purchasing a sewing machine (sometimes less!) which equals to one or two different shipments getting your hair wefted and hoping for good results!

Very good topic. I've been giving this a lot of thought as well. One CV has a little weft making video on their site I see they use 2 at a time, but I guess that's for double wefts(duh).

And I'll bet the instructions aren't in English on purpose

IKR?!  I actually saw a video of a chinese vendor, and they're selling those things for $5,000, but I know one can find a waaay cheaper industrial sewing machine. But they said 2 and 3 head machines are not necessary. Also, I saw this lady "modify" hers, so it was  specifically for hair only. Of course she's not giving up the goods on what she did though lol

S/N Exotiq where did you get your avi from? Its so creepy!

And has anyone looked into this site?

http://hairweftingtraining.com/weftingmachine.html

I remember clicking on it a while back when I was first interested in self-wefting, but I'm confused as to whether or not she sells machines.
