What kind of sewing machine should I get?

mielemaidOctober 23, 2010

I'm a beginning sewer - it's been quite a while since I sewed anything and I'm interested in buying a machine.

I'm not sure what I need, but I'd like to make warm fleece socks possibly to start, and work my way up to some dresses, thick fleece jumpers, probably some trousers (fleece), and eventually some lined blackout curtains.

I'd like to possibly get a computerized sewing machine but I don't know if I want to spend $1100 on a Bernina...

Suggestions?
