Recommended Sewing Machines
This is a great starter machine. It does every stitch you need to make a garment. From straight and zig-zag stitching to button holes. I have this in my studio, which I use for button-holes.
This has all the features of the beginner model with more stitches, a digital interface and different sew speeds to suit your needs.
If you are a professional seamstress/ tailor or have a business producing multiple items daily, then this is the sewing machine for you. This machine is fast, quite, permanent and does one thing, a straight stitch. This comes with a sewing table and can not be moved easily. This is the newer version of what I use in my studio.
If you don’t sew often then don’t get this, instead get sewing foot attachment below
