Well it’s a new year and I’ve been wanting to learn some new things. At the top of the list is Sewing! I actually did sew years ago. Back in the day…we were required to take Home Economics at school, where we learned all the important skills of keeping a home, like sewing,
cooking and setting a proper table. I remember I liked to sew and I even made a dress for myself for 8th grade graduation, using my Mom’s machine. After I got married I had a cheap machine, that didn’t work well at all and I remember spending many frustrating days, just trying to make a pillow with some trim on it! I finally gave up and put the machine on a shelf, where it’s been for at least 14 years. I have no desire to try to sew with that thing again! But I would like to get a machine that’s easy to use and see if I can get back into the swing of things again. I decided the best way to research my new machine, would be to ask some of my friends about the sewing machine’s that they use and what they like about them. I also thought you guys might be able to use this info too, so I decided to write a post about it. I’ve included some links so that you can get an idea of the prices of the machines, in some cases the particular model used, is no longer available, so I tried to find the closest one to it. Sooooo let the comparison begin!
My Machine: Brother LB-6770 Embroidery & Sewing Machine
I taught myself to sew a couple of years ago and finally bought a machine. My machine has a lot of fun stitches and even embroiders, but I mostly use it for straight stitching and easy sewing projects. I have really enjoyed it so far. I’m really excited to see what other machines people use and why they love them!! Thanks for including me and my machine in your series Karen!!
My Machine: Brother – Project Runway Model
My machine is a Brother Project Runway Model, and I bought it at Walmart for about $150. I love that it’s inexpensive, but it does an amazing job of handling whatever I dream up, and with 79 stitch options, I can dream big! It’s easy to maintain and really is a great budget friendly option for those that may not need a high end machine. I actually have 2 of them, and I’ve been using them over 4 years, and still love them as much as the first time I bought it.
My Machine: Singer 7422
I hope you enjoyed this comparison of my some of my friend’s machines. I’ll let you guys know what I end up buying. If you sew and have a machine that you love, please let me know in the comments, I would love to get some feedback from you guys too!
