So far I Haven't found a topic on here dedicated to reviews of Sewing Machines/Sergers/Embroidery machines and I Know that everyone on here owns or uses, or wants to own or use a Sewing Machine. So, I wanted to start a topic so that everyone on here can review their own sewing machines/sergers/or embroidery machines, or ones they have had experience with, or used to own...know somebody who has owned..etc...

Because i have never owned a sewing machine, and am relatively knew to the crafting business. But because I want to start making my own clothes, and instead of creating a new thread every time i want to know about a specific brand or machine, it can all be organized in one thread.

I'll update this post to add the links to each review post on here...
so...Review AWAY!

I do not know the fancy #'s on my machine's - but here's my general opinion. Started on an old NewHome workhorse! First machine Brother great machine! Had a White was not happy with it. For many years I've had a Bernina at least 20 it's computerized and I love it, a few years ago I bought a Viking embroidery machine second hand Love it! Last year got an old used Singer Serger - light weight but okay. I have worked on many Industrial Machines - I like those the best!
They last practically forever if maintained. If I had it to do over I may have purchased that first. I am currently in the market for a used one. However for a new sewer I believe the speed power and complexity of the workings may be a slight bit intimidating. My suggestion for a new seamstress is a Brother basic machine,with a metal bobbin and not too light weight. On sale they run between under $100. - $150. OR go second hand!
