Sewing Machine Suggestions?
I am hoping to get my wife a nice sewing machine for Xmas. I got her a Singer 2250 a couple of years ago when she was a beginner and I'd like to get her something a little nicer now. The Tradition is very basic and easy for her to learn on but I think it's time for an upgrade. The Tradition is extremely noisy. She has to close the door to our room when she sews because of the noise. Other than that I'm not really sure what it's other drawbacks are because I don't want her to know I'm looking for a new machine. But given it only cost me $70 brand new I'm sure it has drawbacks. I'd like to spend around $250 or so this time. And I'd like to get a Singer so the foot she just bought will fit the new machine. Any suggestions? She likes to sew baby bibs, blankets, and burp clothes. Thanks for your help!
