Old sewing machines?
I am starting my search for an old sewing machine. I have given up buying at new machine, they just are made well enough for what I need.
I sew purses and wallets with very thick interfacing. My aunt told me that I should look for a machine that could easily see leather, all metal....
But I have no idea what brand and how easily it will be to find parts.
Does anyone have an old work horse machine that they just love? I don't need fancy stiches or buttholes I just need a great stright stich with a lot of power.
I have come across two really impressive machines on eBay. I tired
to post the link but can't from my phone. Does anyone know anything about these machines?
BERNINA 614 STRAIGHT STITCH HEAVY DUTY SEWING MACHINE
M/W 15 Class Rugged Heavy Duty Sewing Machine Professional Tune-up
Is there a certain brand that is better in old machines? I know singer parts would be easier to find but I don't know about the quality of singer.
Thank you all!
