I need a new sewing machine, and I would love some help picking one out. I’ve never owned a new one and my old garage sale Kenmore has somewhat bit the dust.
So…if you sew and have an opinion about machines-
Here’s the deal:
Based on my sewing needs listed below, if you can recommend a machine for me to buy, I will put your name in a little drawing to win this set of 12 custom, one of-a-kind thank-you cards, in the sewing machine color of your choice, complete with your name or logo on the back.Please leave a comment on this post with the following:
1. Your recommendation for Brand & Model of Sewing Machine I should buy
2. Cost (or close estimate appreciated) and if you live in my neck of the woods (Northern California) and can recommend WHERE to buy the machine you recommend, that would be great!
3. Why you think this is the machine for me.
4. Optional: If you want to include anything else, such as recommended accessories, that would help a bunch or any other advice you think I should know.
In one week I will draw one name from all of those who left comments with the above criteria and contact the winner to receive their prize and work out the details of the graphics. Be sure to leave contact info or link to you or your blog, (I will also pay shipping on the cards and will ship internationally if necessary.) I will follow-up as soon as possible with pictures of my new sewing machine.
MY SEWING NEEDS:
I have a budget of around $600. I want to be able to do the following:
Sew my kids’ Levi’s into skinny jeans, sew with stretchy fabric, heavy fabrics, multiple layers, and paper and I’d love some serging features (I know it probably won’t cut for that price.) I’ve seen some pretty cool button features that would be nice. I don’t plan on needing many decorative stitches, but I know they come with most machines now.
Thank you for your help, I look forward to the research!
UPDATE: We Have a WINNER!
