Good beginners sewing machine?

Postby CherryPie » Sun Feb 26, 2012 1:32 pm

Can any one recommend me a good sewing machine for a beginner? Haven't done any machine sewing since school and fancy a change from knitting :sewing:

What is your budget? Have a look in the DIY section there are a few threads in there. I'll link later when I'm on my laptop.

I got this one for christmas:

http://www.johnlewis.com/302367/Product.aspx and I've been very happy with it. Very easy to use (i'm a real beginner). It was recommended to me by a friend who runs sewing classes. She uses the more advanced Elna model for her classes, but said this was a good budget option for a beginner :D
