Beginner Sewing Machine?
I am wondering if you might be able to provide me with a recommendation for a good beginner sewing machine. I'm a stay-at-home mom and as I wander through stores looking at home decor items like curtains and throw pillows, I can't help but think about how my grandmother could whip that up in no time! Unfortunately, my grandmom lives over four hours away...and if she can do it, I certainly can, right? Also a knitter, I already know what fun it can be to create beautiful things to keep my family comfy and warm...so I think it would be nice to be able to extend that kind of pride to things in my own home. :)
I have read lots of reviews online and quite frankly--as a non-sewer, I'm not sure how to determine which pros and cons are most important. I've been searching the forums for a similar thread, but the latest one I was able to find was in 2005. So, I thought I might ask.
Thank you in advance, and I hope you are all enjoying the weekend!
