Hey, everyone!  This is where we'll eventually house our list of machine reviews.  Between now and then, though, we need for you crafty peeps to write some for us!  Here's a suggested starting point for your review.  Use as much or as little as you like, but please at the very least include the brand and model of your machine.  Thanks!  I can't wait to see what you all post!

Start a NEW TOPIC with your sewing machine brand and model as the title, please, to help stay organized.  I'll add links to this page as people post!

Brand:

Model:

Year:

Cost:

How long have you had the machine?

Is it a basic sewing machine, serger, or embroidery machine?

What are your favorite features?

What are some of the unique features it has?

How well does it run?

Has it ever broken or needed maintenance you couldn't do yourself?

What are your least favorite features?

Would you recommend this machine to a friend?

Just posted one for my oldest machine...

It was manufactured from 1941-1953 and is still in it's original cabinet.

Well, sewing machine is essential home based product. It is also essential for our daily life. My own point of view, before buying a sewing machine you need to read particular sewing machine full review. In this below I mention some best sewing machine review. This way you can easily collect actual information...
 
1. SINGER 7258 Stylist Award-Winning 100-Stitch Computerized Sewing Machine
2. SINGER 8763 Curvy Computerized Free-Arm Sewing Machine
3. Janome 2206 Sewing Machine
4. Janome 5812 Sewing Machine
5. Brother XR3774 Full-Featured Sewing and Quilting Machine with 37 Stitches, 8 Sewing Feet
6. Brother ES2000 77 Stitch Function Computerized Free Arm Sewing Machine

This will be really helpful - I am in the market for a new machine, and wanted some info from Crafters on what to get, but it doesn't look like a lot of questions actually get answered on this page. I am leaning toward a Brother SE400 . . . . Could only find one post that mentioned it when I did a search, and that was a post by someone asking about it - no responses! This list of reviews will probably come too late for me, but I will contribute a review once I buy whatever I am going to buy, and will review my current one when I have time.
