I think it's time that I purchased a sewing machine... I'm not sure how I've managed without one for this long! But I have no clue where to start... I have a budget of around $250-$300 and have been advised by many people not to buy an electronic one as they can break easily. I've only used a sewing machine a couple of times before so need something fairly straightforward to use. I need it to stitch sinamay, silk abaca and fabric (so nothing heavy duty).
Which makes and models would be recommended? I'm based in Australia.
Many thanks in advance :)
I was not a sewer much when I started and my first machine was a janome, spotlight and janome centre always have specials elna are good too hope this helps
Check out this discussion before you buy Silpa - yes I agree if you buy new one Janome will do everything you need https://hatacademy.com/forum/topics/sewing-machines?commentId=64859...
