Best Ways to Choose the Right Sewing Machine For You

by | Sep 25, 2020 | Tips & Tricks

There are many different sewing machines on the market today, and we know that it can get confusing trying to pick out the right option.

In this blog, we will be sharing some of the best ways to help you choose the right sewing machine for you.

Know What You Want It To Do:

Are you a beginner or just handling basic alterations and repairs?

Or, are you an avid sewer who needs a machine that can handle heavy seams without puckering?

The first step to selecting the right sewing machine is to know exactly what you are going to need it to do for you.

Look At Reviews:

Whenever we select a new machine, we do some research first!

You can do this by looking at the product information, checking out social media pages and post, look on the website you are purchasing from for product reviews or find video reviews online.

Sometimes, you can find videos with the machine in action.

This can be a helpful tool since it allows you see if it is the right type of sewing machine for you without ever having to test it out yourself.

Coverstitch VS Overlock

Do you know the difference between coverstich and overlock?

An overlocker will trim the excess seam allowance while and coverstitch will hem your pieces.

By knowing which look resonates best with you, you can select the right machine which offers your preferred capabilities.

Setting A Budget:

Having a budget is beneficial for any new purchase. Going shopping with an idea of what you can afford to spend will help you pick out the right tool based on quality and financial reasons. Luckily for you, we have our September Sale happening right now.
