I couldn't see a date on the article, perhaps 1st April would be suitable  ;)

That was my original thought @Flobear . Is this an out-of-season April Fish?

It wouldn't make any difference as modern machines are controlled by a foot pedal leaving both hands free to control the fabric.

Tbh I would have thought in the days of hand-cranks it would have been easier for RH dominant to turn the handle with the left as it requires no skill and guide with the right.

I’m left handed and don’t have any problems with a normal sewing machine (never seen a left handed one). I do have a pair of left handed scissors which I love but apart from that use normal equipment.

Welcome by the way 😊
