so, i think i need to get a sewing machine. and i think it the perfect time of year to ask that special someone to bring it to me … santa that is.
and because i don’t know a whole lot about sewing machines, i’m going to turn to you for advice. (you haven’t let me down in the past.) as i assume most of you have one … or know a little (or a lot) more than me.
so based on a couple online reviews i’ve found and read, i’ve picked three four options that i think would work well for me. i do realize that sewing machine range from $25 – $4,000+ dollars. with that being said, i looking for a basic sewing machine. something simple, yet effective. something around or under $200. not to complicated, but quality. here goes …
these seems to be one of the highest rated machines for it’s price range on amazon. rated about 4.5 stars. lots of reviews.
i saw this machine at joann’s on sunday. i was initially attracted to it because of it looks. as sewing machines go, it has a ‘manly’ look. (i guess) it was also recommend as a good machine for a beginner.
this is the priciest machine of the three four i found this via a search for sewing machines for beginners. comes with a hardcase.
***updated – based on the first couple comments i’ve decided to add a kenmore sewing machine to my list.
$179.99 – this is from sears, so i assume i could use a coupon and get a better deal. i’m all about the coupon!
has a five star rating based on 45 reviews. and i think my mom has a kenmore and i’m pretty sure it’s older than me.
so what do you think? what machine do you have? what do you love about it? what do you hate about it? other advice for a first time sewing machine buyer? any advice would be really appreciated. and don’t worry, i’ll share what i’ve learned and what machine i do get.
in other news, thanks to a great blogger friend, i do have enough bloggers for my 12 days of christmas. i’ll be in touch within the next couple days for those of you participating.
