Things To Consider Before Buying A New Sewing Machine

Sewing is a form of art. We turn imagination into a real product. I have always loved sewing since my high school years. However, life turned me into a busy woman with no time for leisure so I had no time for passion. When I finally retired to concentrate on taking care of my sick grandma, I was glad to be reunited with the hobby again.


I decided to buy a new sewing machine. The website http://www.sewinginsider.com/ had some guides on how to choose the best sewing machines. Some aspects are very important to ensure that we can get the most suitable sewing machine.

Our needs

Long before we decide which machine to buy, we have to ask ourselves: what will we use the machines for? It is easy to confuse what we need with what we want. Maybe we want sophisticating sewing machines with all automated high tech. However, if it is highly unlikely that we will us the uncommon features, it is better to just focus on the simple tasks. More features mean more difficulties in operation. Therefore, we really have to choose wisely.

Spare parts and warranty

In the past, sewing machines are dominated by big brands, such as Singer or Butterfly. Today, we see more and more brands appearing on the market such as Janome, Elna, and Yamazaki. It is okay to buy less popular brands. However, we have to make sure that the spare parts are widely available. Besides, the warranty is also important.


Make sure that you use your budget as efficient as possible. I’m sure that budget is the first thing comes to your mind. However, you have to know how to optimize your budget. Choose a sewing machine with the most functionality or best quality as possible with the budget that you own. Do a careful research and if you find a very good sewing machine with a low price, it is better to save the rest of your money.
