Decided to take up sewing? The most important pieces of a sewing kit is the sewing machine.
Here’s my first ever machine …….. simple, and cute, but teeny!
- Manufacturers want you to get pleasure from your machine and have come up with lots of new innovations that make using a sewing machine a much easier experience
- Shopping around online for the model you want usually means you get lots of great sewing freebies thrown in
- As a professional Costumier and Seamstress I rarely use more than 7 of the different stitches available on my machine- straight, zig-zag, triple stitch, stretch stitch, overlock stitch, blind heming and buttonholes, so don’t feel you need that expensive machine with “50” stitches unless you want to do embroidery!
Both entry level machines come with a soft plastic cover which will keep dust out, but won’t protect your machine from knocks if you’re out and about. There’s lots of other similar models on the website I’ve linked to
