What type of sewing machine lives at your house?

Well, you all know the machine that has served me well for 3 years now.
Click here if you don’t.


I get asked frequently what type of sewing machine I use but every time I answer, I think….“Gee, that doesn’t help much. It’s only one type and one person and one preference.” (oh, and one small budget…..believe me, there are pricey machines that I would love to have living at my house. If you know of any swanky machines looking for a place to live, call me….)


So, I was thinking…..let’s ask the rest of you.


Then I can refer people to this post. And,Why not? You all collectively have a lot more advice than I do.


So share it with me. I’m actually really curious what others like.

So leave a comment and include:
  1. Brand and model of sewing machine.
  2. Your favorite feature of your sewing machine.
  3. Something that bugs you about your machine.
  4. Price range

I’ll start:

  1. Singer 7444
  2. It has a wide stitch selection. I love having options. Oh, and I love that it’s computerized.
  3. The button-hole setting is very finicky. Sometimes it makes me so steamin’ mad. And I mean steamin’. Grrrr……that is the ONE thing that actually makes me want a new one.
  4. $200


Okay, if you have a minute…….go on and share.


Don’t be shy.
