The budget is unlimited because I'm willing to save up and buy the best machine for my needs.
I've been sewing for about 30 years. I do some garment design and enjoy making up children's costumes from scratch.
Here's a little about what I sew:
- Children's clothing (denim, cottons, knits, costumes)
- My own clothing (same as the kids' + silk & chiffon)
- Dolls & their clothing (waldorf style)
- Garment repair (as in the husband rips stuff often)
I've never done embroidery because I've never had a machine that could do it. I do, however, have a 5 year old daughter who would wear embroidered clothing 24/7.
I've quilted in the past but don't really have an interest in it any longer.
So, if you could buy any machine - which one would you suggest?
(I'm not looking for some industrial overkill here. I don't want a machine that specializes in something that I don't enjoy sewing, i.e. quilting. I'm looking for the best fit for what I actually do.)
