HOW TO CHOOSE A BEGINNER SEWING MACHINE:


A sewing machine is unlike any other household appliance that just plugs in and goes. There is a basic understanding that is required in terms of threading, number of stitches, bobbins etc.

Luckily today's modern technology has made it much easier for a beginner to perfect the basics quickly.

There are a massive variety of beginner sewing machines available and choosing the right one can sometimes be a challenge.


Below, you will find some handy information that will help you pick the perfect machine for you.


A good beginner sewing machine normally ranges between the $350 - $500 range, from a world renowned brand such as Janome or Brother. They are also the easiest and best in terms of an investment for the long term.


Like most things, all machines are made for a price. The higher the price, the better the quality, and more features such as:


Larger selection of stitches

Built in needle threaders

Drop in bobbin (Loads from the top for easy access and visibility)

Thread cutters

Better lighting

Better engineering such as feed systems, and overall performance


Mechanical machines For under $300 you will find many basic mechanical machines. However, the more hardy sewing machines are normally between the $399 - $499 price ranges. These machines will often last longer, come with stronger motors, and built to sew through most things such as heavy fabric and denim.


Computerised sewing machines, normally start at $300. They offer a wider selection of really useful stitches, digital controls and display, plus nice automatic functions that just make the overall experience a pleasure to use.
