1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Getting first sewing machine, need advice please! on: November 08, 2010 05:15:33 PM
I'm just starting out in the sewing world and would like to buy a good machine (not too cheap but obviously not the top of the line).  I went to Joann fabrics to ask about machines since there is a dizzying amount of info on reviews that I don't even understand.  I ultimately want to make clothing, purses and crafts like decorative things around the house (including felt or canvas possibly).  The lady at the store was not much of a help, she told me to get a viking, not a singer because viking is the only one that can go through "tough fabric".  Also that singer inside parts were made of plastic and not metal like viking.

I just want to get a machine that is not too simple but would be durable and allow for many different types of projects....does that exist?!
