O.k. I've got to ask this, because I'm wondering. which do you prefer to use, Sewing Machine (probably the most of you) or sewing by hand? Me, Although, I have used A sewing Machine before (It's been a while), I usually hand-sew.

I do alot of hand sewing only because I make small things like jewelry that dont require enough stitches to merit busting out the machine. I love my sewing machine though and always try to find reasons to use it.

I absolutely love my mom's sewing machine because anything I sew tends to either look bad and/or fall apart.  unfortunitly, most of the time I don't have access to the machine so I have to hand sew.

i don't trust my hand-sewing; i always use my machine. part of that is probably laziness, but i swear my fine motor coordination is lacking. i'm always trying to convince the occupational therapists at work that i need their services.  Cheesy

where are we going, and why am i in this handbasket?

I dont have a sewing machine and I should. I am one of the craftiest people I know (seriously) and I dont have a sewing machine. My mom is a heartless uncrafty women who refuses to buy me one. Pity me.

i use a sewing machine.
i know how to hand sew and everything, but i dont trust my stitches. and its so much quicker to use a machine.

I have a dinky little sewing machine that I got at the supermarket for $45 AUD (about $30USD) it's completely dodgy and only does short straight stitch and long straight stitch  and reverse.

It has coped quite well but I fear prolonged use may spell it's downfall...
here's a pic...

amusingly it has a sticker on the top that reads; THIS IS NOT A TOY - Unsuitable for children theis item contains sharp functional points and small parts.
