In previous posts I’ve written about my search for a new sewing machine. This was a very difficult process, which took almost a year. I was a beginner seamstress and didn’t quite know what to look for in a machine, and was overwhelmed by all the options. I finally purchased the Janome Skyline S3, and I truely believe I couldn’t have made a better decision. In this post I want to share with what I’ve learned during my hunt for a new sewing machine, hopefully making it easier for you to pick the machine that is right for you.
In a previous post I’ve told you about my decision to look for a new sewing machine. A sturdy model, with enough bells and whistles to to keep me happy for years to come. With my top 6 machines in mind I went to the local sewing machine store.
Five years ago I bought my first sewing machine on a whim. I thought it would be cool to sew scented bags (don’t ask me why), so I stepped in a sewing machine store and came out with a Lewenstein Diana 28.
