is a sew and serge machine good for beginner?
HI! I'm a beginner, (read absolutely clueless about sewing),but plan on doing a major upholstery/slipcover project for our house, and want to learn to sew clothes/purses/embroidery,etc. in the future.
and tomorrow(7/12/05), there's a one-day only factory sale of Necchi Educational Model Sew and Serge Sewing Machines for $199, I guess they're usually $529.
the ad lists alot of it's functions, which seem great, but i have no idea if this is a good deal or not, or if I pass it up, will I end up paying more for a machine that does less?
What should a good machine be able to do? It says it has a professional 2-in-1 serging stitch. What does that mean?
It also has a 25 year warranty;is this good?
Thanks guys ! :)
