How To Buy A Sewing Machine

I thought I'd repost some articles that I wrote when I started blogging almost four years ago. This was a series on how to buy a sewing machine. The ideas and suggestions came from interaction with friends, sewing students, and retailers.

Part One: How To Buy A Sewing Machine Week

Part Two: How to Set a Budget

Part Three: The Goodies (Features)

Part Four: Testing the Machines

Part Five: Found One. Now What?  

Part Six: Maintenance

And here's a bonus - an interactive photo of parts of a sewing machine.



  1. Greetings from France ! Thank you very much for those helpful articles.

  2. Great articles for both the novice and experienced sewists (writes better than sewers). Your readers might be interested in a YouTube video that shows the history of the sewing machine and how they work. My favorite part is the human sewing machine. It may be from the 1970s but the basic principles are all the same. I hope you don't mind me sharing this. The YouTube video is titled "The Secret Life of the Sewing Machine with Tim Hunkin". Here's the link:
